Windows 7: PC has been slower since last format

We cannot tell anything from the Event Viewer screenshot except that you have some repeat errors. With these it's best to click on them and google the text and identifiers to find out what they are and how others have dealt with them.

I do resolve all repeat errors or at least want to know what they are. But the task becomes less pressing as long as performance remains good. If performance slips or there are issues you know where to look.

Here are other resources to use to monitor your Systems' performance and follow the best troubleshooting steps

I have formatted again and my computer is still slow after booting, I've tried all of those Troubleshooting steps, but I get the same error every time I boot my PC, when I check the Event viewer It matches the time I turned on my PC

Session "Circular Kernel Context Logger" stopped due to the following error: 0xC0000188


There aren't any solutions on Google

Google the exact text error and identifying numbers and it should yield something - almost every error now does.

Please fill in your System Specs in bottom left corner of post: Speccy - Download

Did you follow the steps in Reinstalling Windows 7 when you reinstalled?

Are you using the drivers given by installer, and then updated via optional Windows Updates? Are there any drivers missing in Device Manager? Check optional Updates and Device Manager now.

Yes I followed the steps given to reinstall Windows 7 correctly


I have all updates from Windows Update and I downloaded them from the official webpage too (for example ATi or Razer keyboard) and Device Manager does not show any errors, every tab has something inside it

Did you replace drivers given by the Windows 7 installer and/or optional updates with drivers from the official webpage? If so first try rolling the driver back to the ones Windows 7 wants you to use.

Then try updating the chipset from the Asus website, but only after trying the one Windows 7 or optional Updates gives you first.

I installed the drivers given by Win 7 first, then after installing every program I downloaded the last ones from their respective official website, should I still roll the drivers back? If so, how can I do it?
The chipset is the motherboard driver right? The ones I have installed are the latest version.

Use the drivers given by the installer and quickly updated by optional Windows Updates.

Then only import drivers which are missing in Device manager.

Did you have a chance to run your computer with just the Installer drivers and those delivered by optional Updates? If so how was performance?

If you can find the Restore Point where you began changing out drivers given by the installer and optional Updates I would System Restore to that point, then run optional Windows Updates to get the drivers Windows 7 wants for your system. Run like this for long enough to see how performance is before importing any drivers except for those missing in Device Manager. Then if there are problems you can start with importing your chipset from the Asus website Downloads page for your model.

Please also fill in your System Specs in the bottom left corner of your post as I specifically asked you earlier. Is there a reason why you are unable to follow simple steps given? If so please ask back all the questions needed to get things done and don't just ignore the clear instructions given.

Sorry I was in a hurry when I wrote the last message so forgive me for writing some things wrong , first of all I installed motherboard drivers, then GPU drivers, then mouse and keyboard, everything from the CDs that came with them, I used that guide to a clean Windows 7 Reinstall and I did everything it says!

Anyways, I've done a recover to when I installed the first game xD (prior to all Win 7 update downloads) and it takes a lot amount of time to finish the "on-screen boot" The driver that's on ASUS webpage it's the same one I have on my Driver CD that came with the motherboard (I already checked that version) Could it be that it has something with my Hard Drive Ultra DMA CRC Error Count?


I'm really sorry for the System Specs thingy, I thought you mean the ones from Speccy xD I've just figured there's a "My system Specs" button in the left top of the screen, I apologize!

Let me try to put it another way since I'm apparently not making it clear:

Windows 7 knows which drivers it wants your computer to have and issues these from the installer, then any drivers needing further updating after install are sent through via optional Windows Updates.

So you only need to supply drivers which are missing after install.

I would not change out these drivers given by installer or optional Updates unless performance requires it.

Did you change any drivers which were given by the installer and optional Windows Updates? If so this may have caused your problems because these drivers should not have been added until later when it was certain they would solve problems.

I'd test my HD using maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan
and .Disk Check.

I only downloaded Windows Important and recommended updates, and from the Optional updates just a language pack.

I have run the Complete HD Diagnostic by booting with the ISO I have burnt and the tests were OK (I also tried the full HD test which took around 3 hours)

I tried disk check too (with Scan and fix) , but it keeps happening, HD Tune shows that HD Health is OK and when I did the Error Scan I got green squares.
