I registered on this forum just for this topic, hopefully you can help me. I've did what your post said (Install WPT and run the xbootmgr command) with a little trouble (Had to change some registry values in order to get the defragmenter to work).
I've created an xml file using the xperf command and looked through it. My boot takes about 10-20 min. and it's doing a lot of DiskIO during the boot-up. Can you tell me why this is taking so long? (Malfunctioning HDD? Bad drivers? Fragmented?)
I used to run Defraggler but I'm running the built in defragmenter as we speak (Although analysis told me it was 0% defragmented). Hopefully you can tell me what I can do to reduce my boot-time.
Oh and I am running Comodo network security which seeing other posts here I suspect of slowing my computer down since I tried upgrading right when the slowness began, but I haven't heard a lot of good things about microsoft's security programs and comodo has worked fine for me so far.
I couldn't find any personal info in there so I haven't passworded it. If you see anything personal, let me know and I'll take it down once you got it.
Thanks in advance
