Windows 7: 2+ min boot up on Win 7, even in Safe Mode (!)

2+ min boot up on Win 7, even in Safe Mode (!)

Hey all,

I know slow boot ups are hard to diagnose, but this case is peculiar and I need help from guys who know way more about Win 7 than I do.

At first, Win 7 was quick to boot-up. I was impressed by its speed. Then, out of nowhere, it began to take 2+ mins to boot up. The boot-up hangs at the Starting Windows screen, and my fan kicks up at full speed while doing so. When the fan slows down to normal, the wait is finally over and it goes into the log-in screen.

I've booted and safe mode, and the same thing happens. It takes just as long for it to get started, and my fan still spins hard while doing so. This eliminates programs that I've installed.

If it helps, the system loaded all the drivers quickly, and it took its sweet time when it was on the screen that described my proccesser.

I've done boot logging, and here are the results: (I have bolded failed drivers to make them easier to spot)

Here is the report generated by the Boot Trace in the Windows Performance Toolkit.

I'm not sure what to make of this.

I read that changing your BIOS from AHCI to native IDE helps, but I can't do that readily. My BIOS is Insyde F.14 dv6, and there is no option in the BIOS screen to change the SATA. Any info on hacks to change this would be most appreciated.

Otherwise, Win 7 runs fine, but this issue is really annoying and I'd like to solve it.

Thank you for the suggestion. I did a clean boot and it still takes long to boot up.

I forgot to mention that I did chkdsk and defragmented my system files with no help.

Check your anti virus?

Been adding programs, with a lot of icons on desktop?

Even though, it was slow in safe mode, I am leaning toward a driver. Go to device manger and look for any yellow markers inidicating corrupted drivers.

Run the schtasks command in elevated Command Prompt and check whether there are any tasks scheduled to run at boot time.

I disabled the anti virus service at boot up and it's still slow. I noticed that it became so slow after I installed the new COMODO firewall, but even with that disabled, the boot up is still slow.

I checked all my devices (including hidden ones) and didn't see any yellow triangles of doom.

Yep I found a bunch of scheduled tasks. How can I go about killing the ones I don't think I need?

Hope it works out. But if it worked at one time and you did not create any new tasks, not really sure.

I had over 30 tasks and cleaned up all unnecessary ones. I have 14 ones now and they don't run at system start up.

Unfortunately, it still takes as long for the system to boot up. On the plus side, it takes less time for my start up programs to load now.

I cleaned out my registry of errors as well.
