Windows 7: Database recovery event takes 16sec during boot up

Database recovery event takes 16sec during boot up

After I turned off my computer just like that without shutting down, the boot up got very slow.

I checked the event log and found a certain event that takes 16 seconds before it continues, causing the "Starting Windows" screen to stall quite a while before the colorfull balls appear. I have no idea what that does. Any ideas?

The error says:
Windows (3996) Windows: The database engine is initiating recovery steps.

EventIS: 300

We might be able to help more if you filled in your system specs (lower left corner) so that we know what kind of hardware you have.

thanks

i retook the time for startup, it actually stalls nearly 90 seconds minutes at the black "Starting windows" screen...

I am not sure anymore if it is this 300 event, there are actually many events taking a lot of time.

If anyone has an idea where to look, i will....
