Windows 7: Slow boot up of Windows (64 bit Ultimate) on laptop

Slow boot up of Windows (64 bit Ultimate) on laptop

Hello

My laptop takes lot of time for boot up.

Config :
Name : Asus K53SV - SX520D
Ram : 4GB DDR3
Processor : i5 2430 2nd gen
HDD : 750 gb (5400 rpm)
OS Installed : Windows 7 64bit .
Major softwares installed : Visual Studio 2010 , Sql server 2008 (evaluation) , Office 2010.
Few other softwares like browser, filezilla , vlc etc.
I've added a wifi connection.

Drives : C (24gb free - total size 73gb) , D (262 free - size 299gb) , E ( 211gb - 325gb).

I've updated all drivers to latest version. I'm using CCleaner , daily clean files and registry , defragment drives, disabled everything from bootup using ccleaner (in msconfig all options are untick) .

Still laptop takes lot of time before the "Welcome" screen appears and when the "welcome" screen (in between the bg changes to black ).

I tried creating boot trace but then I got a BSOD, I used system restore to fix it .

Can any one help ?

Thank you

actually you could go ahead and do this since you did get a bsod.

That will give me more information about the system environment than you ever could.
especially interested in the contents of the c:\windows\minidump folder.
(you will need to zip them then just attach with the paperclip icon. )

Are you having slow boot since you installed Windows 7 or did the trouble start later. Two things come to mind. First if you have a back up image from before the trouble started then try restoring that.

Second if you don't have an image and you haven't turned off the System Restore then restore your system to a date before the trouble started and see if this helps.

I also strongly recommend that you go slow on defragmenting and cleaning of the Registry everyday after your Laptop becomes normal.

personally i don't think registry cleaners are a good idea, not as a daily task, and defrag only needs doing when the drive asks for it, or once a month maybe, no need for a daily frag, all it does is stress the platters and heads more than you need to.

as above, more info on the onset of the issues would help, how olds the laptop, how long has the install of Windows 7 been on there since a fresh install (if ever?) and have the problems always been there or did something specific happen to make them occur?

Unfortunately I ran CCleaner after BSOD appeared and now that folder is empty.

The booting time increased as I installed softwares and filled the HDD. I tried system restore when BSOD appeared , it helped a little.

laptop is 2 months old and yes, I've did a fresh install a month ago. Earlier when I checked the restart time it was around 53-54 secs, now the restart time is 70-71 secs.

It now appears that you don't have an image to restore from and neither is Windows 7 System Restore of any help. The laptop is also quite new.

In these circumstances please save your personal data from the C drive to another Drive/Disk and begin all over again with a clean install of Windows 7. After that evolve an imaging strategy so that if this ever happens again you can come out of it. For imaging I suggest that you read the tutorials on this subject in this Forum and the article on imaging strategies by whs at "Windows 7 Forums > Windows 7 help and support > Backup and Restore Imaging strategies".

Forget the ideas of the past...
Current accepted wisdom with Win 7 is to NOT use a cleaner / optimizer etc.

If you ever think your Registry needs to be cleaned, repaired, boosted, tuned-up, cured, tweaked, fixed, or optimized it shouldn't.

In other words, injudicious use of "Registry cleaners" CAN & DOES cause problems.

You have received some good advice from the others here.


As your system is still quite new another clean install would probably be the quickest & easiest way to go.
However don't be in too much of a rush to download all the 'new' software you did before.
Download a few things at a time, take note of performance changes / evaluate before downloading more.
Troubleshoot this way to try to define the culprit {s} that slow down your system.


FYI.

Thank you JHM.

I've reduced the usage of CClearner (registry cleaning) and the performance has increased. The laptop now reboots in 50 secs.
