Hi

 

I have a Pavilion dv7 with Windows 10 on it.

It is Sooooooooo slow to fully boot (182 seconds according to Trend Micro).

 

System specs:

Win 10 Home v1511 

OS Build 10586.104

Processor: Intel i7 Q720 @ 1.6Ghz

8Gb RAM

64-bit on x64-based processor

2xWDC WD7500KPVT 750Gb HDDs

 

Startup is showing:

Adobe Gamma Loader

Catalyst Control Center Launcher (x3)

Microsoft OneDrive

Platinum user session agent (Trend Micro)

Synaptics Touchpad Enhancements (x4)

Trend Micro Client Session Agent Monitor.

 

Everything just takes heaps of time to open up.

For instance: In task manager, I just tried to "Open Resource Monitor" and it took about a minute to open with nothing but one spike about 25% CPU. Opening it again and it takes less than a second.

 

Please help

Actual timings (after disabling Catalyst CC, OneDrive and Touchpad):

48 seconds to the windows 10 "picture" that I need to click on to login

35 seconds until desktop appears (blank taskbar)

14 seconds until taskbar populated with calc and chrome (I click on calc and then chrome)

9 seconds until calc appears but is just a black box

5 seconds buttons appear on calc

36 seconds until blank chrome windows appears

8 seconds until homepage (google) appears

Hi

 

Spoiler

In view of the fact, that there is so much rubbish, what must be loaded and must be also start and that you have Processor: Intel i7 Q720 @ 1.6GHz, it's all absolutely normal. 

If you have a 1.67 GHz, it runs three times slower than the 2.1 GHz event.
But nowadays there are very rarely used in less than 3.7 GHz.
If you want faster start and faster run, you have to buy better computer. Otherwise, it is not in any way possible.

Can you try booting in Safe Mode and see if the slowness still exists?

You can try to do whatever you want when the CPU operating frequency is 1.67 GHz, it is not going ever start or work faster.

Thanks .... OK, I bought this one to replace my other dv7. This has more ram and more HDD space but slower CPU. The other is i7-2630 2.00Ghz.

 

Would it be easier to swap the CPUs or swap the disks and ram?

 

Thanks

Much faster!

Just about unusable in normal mode

My prime suspect for the slowness would be your AV (Trend Micro). Which edition of TM are you using (Internet Security, Maximum Security etc.)?

Can you uninstall Trend Micro via Programs and Features, then turn on Windows Defender and see if the boot time improves?

It's Max Security ... taking it up with Trend as I can see its Malware part is caning the system

To my knowledge Trend Micro is not the fastest of the bunch, and the Maximum Security edition crammed a lot of bloat into the suite.

If you still want to stick with Trend Micro, I would recommend that you downgrade to Antivirus Plus Security or Internet Security. There are better options in both protection and speed that you can consider - just let me know if you do.
