Windows 7: Really slow boot with Win7 Ultimate x64

Really slow boot with Win7 Ultimate x64

Hello all,
I'm new here to Windows 7 forum. I found this site through a google search of "long boot times". Recently and all of a sudden, my boot time has went from about 30 seconds to about 3 minutes, with a long delay between windows logo and welcome screen. I found cluberi's tutorial on obtaining a boot log and I've done so.

I've posted the zipped file here: Boot_Trace.zipx

I'd really appreciate if someone can please take a look at this and let me know if this is something that can easily be repaired.

Thank you, in advance, for any help you can give me.

Regards,

Tmac

Hello Tmac and welcome to Seven Forums.

Since this problem just recently started, and providing it's not a hardware issue, you could try restoring your computer to an earlier date/time using system restore.

System Restore

If system restore doesn't help you could try troubleshooting the slow boot time by performing a clean boot (aka clean startup.) This may help to isolate if it's a software or hardware issue.

You could also go through these basic troubleshooting steps as provided by one of our forum experts, gregrocker.

SOLVED - (so far)

I tried a few of the ideas listed above like doing a full scan in safe mode, a clean boot and a few other suggestions.
Finally, as outlined in STEP-4, I Google'd all of the errors in event viewer. Some of the problems I was having:
I'm not really sure which of these solved the problem but my boot time is now about 60 seconds flat as opposed to over 3 minutes (there was a 2 minute delay from Windows Logo to Welcome Screen).


Thank you for your help with this.

We thank you for your feedback and solution.

The Home Network was probably the big time killer as the network was trying to establish the network members and awaiting responses that never came..

Homegroup

I turned off homegroup after viewing you thread and my system now boots in 30 sec instead of 3 minutes, hanging just before log on screen. Thanx guys.
Previously I have tried all the above and also checked memory modules and hard drive. THinking it was a mother board fault on my Asus notebook k53sj. Even reloaded my system to try and fix it. Updated my Bios.
I do not use home group it loads on setup. share printer was ticked.

Can't believe it was something so simple
