Recommended Posts

I have been watching this for a while now and would like to add that there is a tracer in windows 8 that will prevent shut down. and when you try to force shut down it will tell you people are conect to your computer do you really want to shut down. The people are Microsoft !!!!! Remove t he tracer and will shut down no problem! This is what I found and did to windows 8. Get a program that will find it.

Hi!

I am having a big problem with windows 8 :

We are in a windows domain, and the 1rst login takes 2-3+ mins.

Once a user has logged on, the following logins are very fast (max 10secs).

I see after following your instructions and doing the trace that it is the explorer step that is taking extremely long (over 170s).

Can you please help me? I don't see why it would do that !!

I will attach the xml.

summary_boot.xml

opening the key \Registry\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\FileSystems\Ntfs takes so much time. Open regedit.exe and look which data you have in this key.

There is no \FileSystems\ ?

WinLogonInit and ExplorerInit are slow. I see you use GPOs. tweak them to as much as possible.

I unjoined the domain and still over 2mins first logon ... here is the new xml..

I don't get it! Explorerinit seems to take forever but nothing within it shows any trace of it being slow ...!

this is wired.

Run ProcMon boot logging:

look a at the duration column. Does it also show the long opening of the key?

which AV tool do you use? Look at at the disk graph at this time. Is the disk busy? if yes, which process causes it.

No AV.

I don't seem to see anything slowing it down in the disk utilization ... can you please look at the etl file ?

Do you install software? I see references to Shell32_ActiveSetup_RunOneInstallStub and those commands:

rundll32.exe AppXDeploymentExtensions.dll;ShellRefresh

Do you deploy apps via sideloading?

Run AutoRuns from sysinternals and look for the startup entries and disable the AppX Deployment entries if you don't want to install the Apps.

I don't see anything ... look at the autoruns log file ...

thanks for your help.
