Those numbers are in milliseconds, so all of them added up isn't going to amount to anything. Your trace didn't merge (you have a kmode and a umode .etl file), so I'm merging this manually (meaning I may be missing some portion of the data - I would hope not, but it is possible). There are a couple of things here (the nvidia driver
is causing network stack delays during boot, disk fragmentation is apparent, especially in the MFT, Windows Defender is enabled and scanning, heavily, during boot, etc), but I did find something interesting. the xmarks IE add-in seems to cause about a 10 second driver request at about the same time csc is loading, which also occurs at around the same time that an svchost is doing a scan of the registry (and a lot of random writes during read). I also notice that the system spends a lot of time on D:, but the disk information says the partition is C: on a Fujitsu MHW2160BH
- that seems a bit odd, so I'm wondering which is which.
Ultimately, however, I am not sure it's anything you've done, per se, but it's a convergence of things here that are conspiring to slow your system. It might make sense to do a few things:
- Stop/Disable Windows Defender, and replace it with an actual antivirus/antimalware product like Avast, MSE, etc.
- Disable/remove xmarks temporarily - it's not doing you any favors
- Run a manual disk defragmentation pass, and then defragment free space as well with defrag.exe (see /? for options)
- Make sure your nvidia drivers are up to date - they aren't doing you any favors either, although you may not be able to do much about the perf hit they'll give during boot/resume, unfortunately
The delays here appear to be too many cooks in the disk I/O kitchen at the same time on a slow disk - that Fujitsu is a 5400RPM disk with only 8MB of cache (1st gen SATA, and designed for reductions in power consumption, not speed), which would explain two things - one, why it's I/O performance is slow, and two, why the cache is flushing so frequently. Ultimately, the disk is *really* slow in today's technological parlance, and it is especially important that be noted given all the I/O being thrown at it.
