I uninstalled it and it made no difference so I put it back on. I'll uninstall it and rerun the logs?

Yes. Also provide the boot.etl for the same boot. this helps me to filter the ProcMon log.

Sorry to sound dense but can you elaborate on that? :wacko:

do what I told you in post #574.

Activate boot logging in ProcMon, and NOW run the xbootmgr command to do a normal boot trace:

After reboot, stop ProcMon and xbootmgr and provide the ETL and the PML files (zip them again to reduce the size)

There you go Andre: http://tinyurl.com/co79w4b

Due to the size of the file I'm sharing via Tonido. Let me know if you have trouble getting the files.

Tonido Enabled Device Unavailable


Compress them as 7z (with method LZMA2 and compression ratio ULTRA. This really reduces the size a lot) and upload the 7z to SkyDrive

I can't really see the cause. Disable all 3rd party tools (Clean Boot) (especially the Trusteer Rapport tools, it causes a lot of CPU usage) until you find the tool which causes the slow ExplorerInit.

Thanks Andre. I have a feeling it's probably both Malwarebytes and Trusteer combined. I'll do as you suggest. Merry Christmas!

Hi Magicandre1981, ive followed your guide in how to speedup the boot time on windows 7 to no avail it seems every time i do a cold boot it just takes longer to boot everytime its weird i thought that the performance would only start to decline once you installed something new or add something to the registry of windows. Or are you supposed to always do the Command prompt trick everytime a week ....

Have you used the normal boot command to measure how long Windows boots? How long has it increased over the time?

After the last check on the normal boot command that you posted it rebooted i went and checked the event manager and it stated 60626ms, then after that did a cold boot after like 5 hours i think, and it showed 178786ms.

run a normal boot command and look at the readyBoot graph. Does it show a lot of black?

Thx for the reply, but it seems i may be suffering from faulty disk drive, just now it started to do some scratchy noise thing.
I have to start thinking of replacing it with an SSD maybe, have to research a bit to try and find one that fits on my laptop.

ok, a damaged HDD can explain it. Check the SMART values and run a diag tool from the manufacture.

booting to the desktop takes 96s and Windows is fully booted in 104s:

<timing bootDoneViaExplorer="96448" bootDoneViaPostBoot="114548"

the largest delay is the SMSSinit phase.

Here it takes 60s to start the device: "USB\VID_0BDA&PID_0139\20100201396000000" which is your Realtek SD Reader. Update the driver if this is the latest driver, disable the device and only enable it when you need to read/write data to the SD card.

Also, please Install the Win7 Sp1! The RTM will be out of support stating with April 2013.

To make sure the boot is fast, install the hotfixes:

Hey guys,

after some usage of my google skills i found this forum to get some help. Since i've reinstalled my win7 with a new ssd+new hdd, I've got some problem with my win7 startup. Now it took roundabout 60sec for booting. I ran the xbootmgr to analyze my problem. After reading through the xml file i was surprised by this line.

    <interval name="PreSMSS" startTime="0" endTime="41975" duration="41975">
        <perProcess>
          <perProcessCPUUsage name="Idle" time="41427" percentOfInterval="98.69">
            <cpuUsage priority="0" time="41427" cumulativeTime="41427" ofProcess="100.00" ofInterval="98.69" cumulativeOfProcess="100.00"/>
          </perProcessCPUUsage>

Does this mean my CPU idle 40sec before doing anything usefull ? When yes why ? Some seconds ago i looked into my pc and there is realy no dwarf whos is saying "nananana nananana you have a ssd plz wait ..." :(

        <pnpObject name="PCIIDE\IDEChannel\4+d21defa+0+0" type="Device" activity="Start"
                   startTime="1230" endTime="27747" duration="26517" prePendTime="26517" description="IDE-Kanal" friendlyName="ATA Channel 0"/>
        <pnpObject name="PCIIDE\IDEChannel\4+d21defa+0+1" type="Device" activity="Start"
                   startTime="27747" endTime="41007" duration="13260" prePendTime="13260" description="IDE-Kanal" friendlyName="ATA Channel 1"/>

Ok i solved my problem. Although ahci modus(BIOS) was activated during my win7 installation, my os failed to install/activate the msahci drivers, so my attached ata ssd+hdd ran in ide mode. Now i manually installed the amd sata ahci drivers from my hardware vendor(gigabyte= and now everything is running smoothly and my os start within half the time :)
