Hello,
Immediately following the Starting Windows splash screen and before the welcome/logon screen I experience a 40ish second delay; a black screen with a cursor. I have been attempting to fix this for quite some time and this is my last resort. There is no difference in safe mode, clean boot, etc. Tried every reasonable suggestion I could find to no avail. A boot trace has revealed that "RPCSS svchost" is taking the majority of the time (see screenshot). I have no idea where to go from here. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

That is out of the question, it has been occurring far too long to attempt that. However I know for certain that it has not always been like this, as you can see in the speccy I have an ssd-used to get 7 second boot times.

I was hoping someone knows exactly what the rpcss service is supposed to be doing/look like beyond what I have found in Google searches-i have not found much about anyone else having this issue.

Run sfc /scannow according to these instructions:  http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1538-sfc-scannow-command-system-file-checker.html

 

After that I would just backup your data and reinstall Windows if that doesn't work.

sfc was one of the first things that I tried, sadly did not help. Reinstalling windows seems excessive and unnecessary when I have the issue isolated like this.

I understand what you're saying, but really the only alternative is to uninstall that particular file, get a windows reinstall disk, find that 1 particular file on the disk, copy it over, and hope that the file is not essential to running Windows in the meantime (which means it may or may not screw up your current copy of Windows if it gets deleted). 

 

Trying to find individual system files is often a wild goose chase, so although I agree with on the face of it it seems excessive, the alternative is even worse.   

 

If you're willing to risk it you can go on the particular file level, but it's probably easier and faster just to reinstall Windows.

That is a very interesting find thank you for sharing! There does not seem to be a time-stamp on that post, but judging by the fact that vista and up is not mentioned I feel that it may be dated. Still, I wonder if something similar could be going on here.

I may just attempt that. Just "rpcss.dll" then? Seems that there are 3 in my Windows folder: ufPhVIL.png

All the same file and therefore should be replaced by rpcss on an install disc? Or do they slightly different; the one is 497KB oddly.

No I have not. I have tried everything suggested: I replaced the specific files by booting from external media; after that didn't work I tried a full repair install, didn't help either. May be something installed on my machine that is causing this, however I have given up. Too much time spent on this already. If anyone finds a fix I'd appreciate it if they let me know.

Have you tried running a startup repair?
