Windows 7: Slower than normal boot time

Slower than normal boot time

Hey guys, So I run an OCZ vertex 4 ssd drive that is just for my windows installation. Now my boot time is somewhat slower than it used to be.

Nothing has changed.

Could you guys possibly recommend something for me to do about this?

Thanks!

Can you fill out your system specs, so that we can better assist you? After that, use this tutorial to find out the speed of your restart time and post it here: Restart Time
Have you installed any programs recently? Do you use any system optimizers/cleaners?

I have filled out my system specs.

I finished the restart time at it is 102 seconds (That is much to long)

I didn't install anything lately. I use O&O defrag and Malwarebytes pro.

Did you defrag your ssd? If you did, that is most likely the problem.

As Computer0304 said, defragging an ssd is not good for it. Defragging is only for hard drives, not flash based devices like flash drives, sd cards, and ssds. Uninstall the defragger. Do you use an antivirus along with Malwarebytes? Malwarebytes is antimalware only, so you still need to use something like Microsoft Security Essentials, Avast, Avira, etc. I recommend Microsoft Security Essentials. After you have installed your antivirus, run a full scan with it and remove anything it finds.

It has also been found that some 3rd party defrag programs will do strange thing to your system. Some delete restore points or disrupt other Windows System Files.
I personally recommend using the built in Windows 7 defrag.

Hey guys sorry for not getting back to you on this post.

No i don't think I have ever defragged my SSD's.

I know that defragging SSD's is bad for them so I wouldn't intentionally do it.

I will try and uninstall O&O though.

I also run Microsoft SE.

Have a look at the events 100 in Event Viewer. That might give you a clue what's holding it up. Go down this chain:

Eventvwr

Windows
Diagnostics - performance

Event ID 100

Also, check your alignment: SSD Alignment

Why is chkdsk so much slower at boot time?
Something I've always wondered about: if I do a disk Properties/Tools/Check now and am successful i.e. the drive's not mounted and is checked (typically with just "auto fix" selected, not "check for bad sectors") it runs lickety-split i.e. usually less than a minute even on very large drives. ...

Mapped network drives, slower boot time
Long story short, I have shares on three PCs that are not always on. If I make a shortcut to the share and put it on my desktop, sometimes for some reason, the shortcut vanishes. I believe this is because I haven't connected the PC to the network in a while. So, I went about and mapped those...

slower boot time after patch? how?????!
Very interesting observation: I have a spare pc with win7 64bit professional (no SP1) on a ssd which I bought a year ago. Back then, it booted within 20sec or so. I noticed a slower boot time after the SP1 patch. So I assumed the patch slows the PC and so I went on with my life. Now that I...
