Hi Maxie.

Not any luck I'm sorry to say, I must be doing something wrong entering in:

To be honest Alan i do not know .. You seem to have run it any how when your screen flashed .. I searched the Intel Website and found the same Driver as you did that was the Latest Version .. Installing a Driver i dont think will help .. The problem seems to be when you Computer boots it is looking to load the Intel Earthnet Adapter which you do not use ...

Hi Trapper,

I've been reading what you gave me and now I'm catching up to what you and maxie have been doing.

I'm nt sure why you're running things in Command (other than things specified to be run in Command).... but we can straighten that out.

I'm downloading the driver now so I can compare what you said to what I see. I apologize... I should have given you guidance on which link to download - it's all the same payload, the method differs. I tend to stay away from Download Managers on any site - it's just not necessary. No harm, no foul though - you have the driver.

I did not see any mention of the Intel NVM update utility - I'll catch up some more and post what I think you need to finish. There might be more work after, but let's slow down for a minute and catch our breath.

Bill

I think to sort this through, a recap is in order

The issue: Slow startup & Errors/Warnings in the event log
Maxie suggested uninstalling Bonjour & Apple Product Updater
-> You disabled the Bonjour Service, saw no change so you re-enabled it
You can safely uninstall both - please do

You noted that reading through some event logs that Computer Browser depends on the Server Service which failed to start due to a dependency service failure to start. You changed some service (not sure which) from manual to automatic start, rebooted and saw fewer errors in event logs. The slow startup issue was still present.
Are the Computer Browser and Server services running now? If not, look at the Server service - > Dependencies tab and see which component is failing. Post a screenshot of the Server service - > Dependencies tab


Maxie suggested a MS Fixit for WMI 10, but redirected you to msconfig to disable Adobe Arm.
No mention of msconfig startup changes

You couldn't find the MS Fixit and found a 82579v driver using the free Driver Genius. When you tried to install the driver, it said you had to uninstall the previous version of the driver.
Never use 3rd party drivers - ALWAYS get a driver from the OEM site! No harm, no foul as you did not install that driver.

Maxie confirmed that it was not a good driver and pointed you to the Mobo's website.


I suggested that you create system image. then I wanted to see if IPv4 or IPv6 took precedence on your machine. I asked for the event logs under performance. I suggested the clean startup tutorial and provided a link to the WMI 10 MS Fixit. I asked for an ipconfig /all, requested the current version of the installed driver, and I provided a link to the Asus download for the 82579v driver noting the additional download stated on the Asus download reference.
You had an image, but would create a fresh one. Your system prefers IPv4 and does not support IPv6. There were 17 pages of Event log entries (errors / warnings) posted later. WMI 10 MS Fixit will run later. ipconfig output posted. Current driver version is 11.8.74.0. You noted that Bitdefender was flagged as a slow startup item in the logs - this is fairly common with AV apps (27 seconds does seem long though - perhaps a configuration change might speed it up - not sure... back burner for now). You waited for a response on your feedback before downloading the Asus driver. You also noted that you recalled previously having both IPv4 & IPv6
No mention of following the tutorial: Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup. This addresses the issue directly and needs to be completed.
The WMI 10 MS Fixit is not critical, but I'd like you to run it so that I can check it as done - thanks.

Maxie confirmed the Asus driver as a good choice and suggested removing Bitdefender from your startup.
No mention of msconfig startup changes

I reviewed what you posted, commented and had more to read. I suggested the SevenForums Diagnostic tool and the System File Checker to help this side of your monitor see what you see and to verify the system files.
No mention of the SevenForums Diagnostic tool and no output to read


PBCopter confirmed that the e1cexpress error was a timeout issue and suggested a workaround.

You posted the 17 pages of event logs from performance.


This is where things get a bit off track.

I'm not sure why you were in Command Prompt. Could you point me to the place where you were told to launch a Command? I know that the SFC tutorial needs an elevated Command, but do any other instructions (driver, NVM utility) require a Command prompt?

You chose to use the Global (DLM) link on Asus to download the driver. I'm not familiar with how that's all tied together and I should have pointed you to the Global (without DLM) download link. I think it would be easier if you download the driver again using the Global link (middle one).
Download the NVM utility first and run it. It might not have any work to do, but you won't know that until you run it.
Then install the 82579v driver second


maxie pointed you to the SFC tutorial again

You were still working in Command prompt trying to install the driver and having some difficulty. You asked about SFC (scan or verify). You also commented on the status of the Ethernet connection - it is marked unplugged.
No mention if you applied PBCopter's configuration change - please do make the change.
This throws a stumble onto the path we were on, doesn't it! The device is not being used, yet it migh still contribute to the slow startup.

maxie suggested placing 82579vskuw64e.exe on your desktop for easy access. And confirmed the scan function of SFC.

You ran SFC with /verifyonly which returned Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations. You had more questions about Command prompt. This is some fairly technical stuff we're asking you to do, don't worry if you have questions.


maxie 'explained' the arrows, but I'm not sure that helped . then he asked if your internet connection was secure or not.

maxie suggested that a hardwired connection might solve the issue.

you were still having Command difficulties. You seemed to be stuck on running things in Command - try this: Forget about Command Prompt unless explicitly instructed to launch one.

maxie shrugged

maxie requested a speedtest and reiterated that you might get better throughput using a hardwired connection.


I played catchup which prompted this recap. I will post a todo lit next, then I'll go back to reading the performance logs.

You can work off the todo list in my next post - this is just a recap.

Follow this list one by one and see if your startup time improves. do each one in order (easiest first). Some might not affect the issue at all (WMI 10 error) and I'll note that.

As you go though the list, please inform me that it was completed - and the status. If at any time, there is an error reported, STOP and ask BEFORE continuing. If at any time the startup time improves, STOP and we can work from that point forward.

There are some tasks that should be done even if you stop before then - this is more housekeeping than and absolute requirement.

Todo
  • Purchase an Ethernet cable and connect your machine to your router or cable modem. check your documentation - I'll see what I can find.
  • Make sure Computer Browser and Server services are running.
  • Fix WMI error 10 MS Fixit 50688 - scroll down on the MS Fixit page and click the Microsoft Fix it button. This is not related to the issue, run it and go on to the next item in the list.
  • Change the adapter setting Wait for link to ON (per PBCopter)
    • Network and Sharing center -> Change adapter settings
    • Right click on your Intel 82579V Network adapter
    • Select Properties
    • Press the Configure button
    • Navigate to the Advanced tab
    • Scroll down the Property list (alphabetical) to
    • Wait for link
    • Change the value to ON
    • Restart your machine
  • Follow this tutorial: SF Diagnostic Tool - Using for Troubleshooting. Output = SF_DD_MM_YYYY.zip
  • Follow this tutorial: Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup
  • Download and install NVM Update Utility for Intel 82579V Gigabit Ethernet PHY Network Connection BEFORE you update the driver.
    • Launch an Elevated Command Prompt
    • cd C:\<folder name where you downloaded the NVM util>\Win64e
    • Then type
      • 82579VSKUW64e
    • read any msgs - post any errors. As I originally stated, this might not have any work to do, but the Asus download page made a strict reference.
    • then you can type
      • exit
  • Asus download (use the Global link, NOT the Global (DLM) link:
    Intel LAN Driver V17.3.0.0 for Windows XP / Windows 7 / Win8 (WHQL) x86 & x64
    • In a Windows Explorer, Dbl click on the zip file and extract the folder inside.
    • The extracted folder should be the one in focus.
    • Dbl click on the AsusSetup application and follow the instructions.
    • Post a screenshot of the driver in Dev Mgr showing the version has been updated to 17.3.0.0
    • Restart your machine
  • Houskeeping todos
    • Uninstall Bonjour and Apple Product update
Take your time and please don't look elsewhere for solutions - your feedback has been very helpful and sometimes it has been an epiphany. I'm only trying to keep us both on one path. If we get to the end and there still isn't a resolution, I'll let you know that I've exhausted my resources.

Hi Bill.
Thank you for your very complete reply, I will read through this once I have printed it out.

Just to clarify a question over my use of command prompt. I understood this was required as in the 825759VSKU.exe link it stated:

Quote:
82579VSKU.exe Version 1.2.2

Tool to update the NVRAM for the Intel® 82579V Gigabit Ethernet PHY
Copyright (C) 2012 Intel Corporation

Three tools are included, to support three different operation systems (Windows 32 bit; Windows 64 bit; DOS).

Steps to run the update tool:

1. Download the utility from the Intel download center
2. Select the correct tool file name based on the operating system installed
3. Open a command prompt window with administrator privileges
4. Run the executable file from the common prompt
5. The NVM image will be updated. Reboot the computer for best results.
Unquote.

I will try again as per your notes below.



Asking questions is not a problem, its understanding the replies that’s the problem! There are so many
abbreviations used I find it difficult to grasp. Check your NIC properties, err I do not know what NIC
stands for so checking its properties is a task in itself! Likewise I not understand DLM stood for
DownLoad manager, as I just picked the first one in line. Anyway I will persevere.

I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Alan.

Hi there Alan .. Your speeds are quite good ... Who is your Internet Service Provider and do you know what package you are on ? More than likely you would have better speeds with the Lan connection .. Bill has given you plenty to work through please report back with your findings ..
