Windows 7 Home Premium: My Boot usually takes about 30 -40 seconds; every once in a while after windows screen boot delays 60 -75 seconds before sign in (this has happened several times and eventually (days or weeks)seems to correct). I have checked drivers, run check disc, memory diagnostics, system restore, driver backup restore, registry errors, System File Checker, etc everything checks out. I have run a boot trace but don't know how to read the results. HELP!


EDIT: Moved from Intros to Windows 7~~

hi, maybe its not you computer ,but your stop watch .lol

just kidding ,but i do fine it kind of silly to worry about 30 or 40 seconds longer boot time ,[be careful you don't screwup a good working computer trying to fix it ],but maybe you virus scanner or another program that starts at bootup is doing a quick check for updates

Hi,

The 60 - 75 seconds I refer to are the (additional) time to go from the windows screen to sign in screen (compared to switch PC on and be fully loaded in 35 - 40 seconds(this issue has happened many times and it is frustrating). I suspect there may be driver issues but cannot find any evidence.

I ran a Windows boot trace but do not know how to interpret the graphs.

Thanks,

Bob

Caperjac,

Thanks; I'll have a look. The link covers the Event Viewer through Vista. Windows 7 version is much more detailed (all the better (If you know what you are doing)). I felt like I was looking for that proverbial needle in the haystack. I checked the major categories for errors and did not see anything "major" but I kept getting:

MMC has detected an error in a snap-in and will unload it (I checked "unload snap-in and continue running" and then viewer closes)

Unhandled Exception in Managed Code Snap-in
FX:{b05566ad-fe9c-4363-be05-7a4cbb7cb510}
Could it be an Admin Permissions problem(?) Windows 7 seems to be famous for them.
