Windows 7: Event Viewer is not showing Diagnostic-Performance Windows 7

Event Viewer is not showing Diagnostic-Performance Windows 7

I am trying to find out my laptops boot up time as it's gotten slower. I am following the Tutorial posted but when I click on the 'application and services' log, the 'diagnostic Performance Branch' does not show up and there is no operational check box.

There is a diagnostic submenu under the Microsoft-IE menu which is disabled. When I tried to enable it I got a dialogue box saying 'Analytic and Debug logs may lose events when they are enabled. Do you want to enable this log?' I enabled it and filtered the current log typing 100 in the events ID but nothing showed up under 'level' 'date and Time' Source and Event ID

Work through the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 .

If these fail to resolve the problem then try Gathering a Startup, Shutdown, Sleep, Hibernate, or Reboot Trace

I'm having this when trying to compare boot load times. 0 events in diag-perf.

I think it's because my diag-services are manual...


Test 1: Enable all (auto - delayed start)

You can see a map of your startup by installing Soluto – Anti-Frustration Software,
reboot,
then click on your PC on its control page.

Thanks. Think I'll try that, to get as fast as possible, and highlight heaviest load.

Re the event viewer, I've just read this, re group policy

Boot Times - Monitor with Event Viewer

This implies that I need to setup the group policy to have the events generated, but these steps aren't mentioned here

My question is this (to anyone that has boot times in event viewer - diagnostic performance)

Do you have to enable the policy in gpedit to achieve this auditing?

Rebooting with diagnostic services set to auto

Running the services alone doesn't cause the events. I must have enabled this on another build in the past (checking), seems strange that policy creation isn't mentioned in the boot times guide.

Testing the new policy out..

Even with the policy enabled I still have 0 events in diagnostics-performance.

What does Soluto say? I would take their suggestions to disable or delay services.

Note that if you uninstall Soluto it will take these adjustments with it.

It's changed to a web based trial style superfluous program that's offering screen snap chat remote access BS.. and can't see anything re boot times.

Eeurgh.
