Maxie,

Just out of curiosity, why do you say this? I have been using the latest driver on the same Intel NIC with no issues.
I seen it had issues on some Forums .. Only on some Motherboards though as why i have no idea .. That is why I advised the OP not to try it esp as it would not be used ..

Trapper,

Did you try disabling the Network adapter? If it is not being used, then Windows will not go looking for a network during boot.

From the screen shot, he is not showing the last item in the list which is the Wait for Link entry and the one I suggest setting to on.

However, since he doesn't intend to use the LAN, I would suggest right clicking on the adapter and selecting disable.
This should save some boot time.

He did Disable it but after a Reboot it was set back to Enable .. I thou maybe he should try through the BIOS ... Do not think it is that Important any how ..

This started with some of the last Intel driver updates. It is not a real problem with the Network adapter though.

Go to the Network and Sharing center

Select Change adapter settings

Right click on your Intel 82579V Network adapter

Then Adapter properties

Then configure

On the Advanced tab

at the bottom of the list

Change wait for link to on instead of auto detect

Reboot.
I think he was talking about this suggestion but your right it probably doesn't really matter.
I just thought he might cut down the boot time a little by disabling the adapter.

Q: After this completed I checked in Device Manager and found the driver updated, but not to 17.3.0.0 as expected
>> A: PBCopter says "The driver version does not always change with every release since they also change the application software as well."
This makes sense - the package is version 17.3.0.0 which contains the driver version 12.2.45.0 - I looked through some of the reference material but could not locate specific release information. Note that the package install says "Install drivers and Software" implying more than just the driver. I'm sure you could have extracted the driver, but I didn't want to put you through that detail. Plus, I'd have to figure out what to tell you to do.

Sooo, the driver is updated - very good!

Disable the 82579V gigabyte Network in
Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center
Change adapter setting
Select Local Area Connection
click Disable this network device on the action bar

Yeah.. I know... you went through all of that trouble just to disable it now? Yep, you discovered a hole in the system trying to fix the slow startup and rather than leave it as a possible gotcha later, you fixed it. Now you're back to trying to improve your startup time - so disabling the device that isn't being used should show some improvement.

In post# 44 you say you have unchecked the startup pgms, but they look checked to me. You wanted them checked to exclude them from startup - the screen looks correct, the words might have been lost in translation . To double check - run the performance troubleshooter again and see what it suggests.

The notification tray is the up arrow in the lower right of your screen near the clock.

Go ahead and uninstall iTunes - it probably came along for the ride with Quicktime (as did Bonjour and Apple updater). If you don't use Quicktime - uninstall that too.


Run CCleaner: see attached for what to clean.


Restart your machine in case there are any system operations pending

Click here to download Old Timer-TFC.
>> save the application to your Desktop.
Old Timer-TFC is a standalone application, there is no install.

Save your work and close all open windows.
TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!

Right click, run as administrator TFC

Click the Start button to begin the cleaning up temporary files and folders.
Do not work on other things while TFC is running - most applications use some sort of temporary files. Just let TFC run by itself on the machine until it completes.

If TFC prompts you to reboot, do so immediately.
If TFC does NOT prompt you, then reboot your machine immediately after TFC has completed.


After Old Timer-TFC runs and you have restarted your machine you should defrag your C:\ drive. Depending on the fragmentation level you might want to run defrag a few times. I try to get mine down to four passes or less. You'll see what I mean if you watch it for a while (it's like watching paint dry though). It can take a while for each iteration - I've had disks that were running 12 passes, then 10 passes, then 8 passes, then 7 passes, then 7 passes, then 6 passes, then 7 passes, then 5 passes, then 5 passes, then 5 passes, then 4 passes - good enough for me! Hopefully you won't have to run that many iterations.

So what have you just done? You cleaned up your drive and hopefully that will improve startup time and prevent some of the optimization events (a prefetch issue that cCleaner clean up)

There's a lot more cleanup I saw in the SF report, but if you're satisfied with the startup times, well that's what this thread was all about.

After these final things, we should go over what was turned off in startup up and turn some things back on)

So see how she runs for a few days after this and keep an eye on the startup times. A minute ten is a bit long, but you say it's better than before.

You were a real trooper though all of this, it was a pleasure working with you. I'll be hanging around if you run into trouble, but I think you'll be fine.

PBCopter: The Asus site marked the latest driver as beta - I don't recommend beta software or drivers to other members so I suggested the previous version. Some members can manage a beta, others can't - so I eliminate that as a possible snag to finding a resolution.

Made me smile that did, all that effort on your part to help me to update a driver, and my efforts to complete the task successfully in the end, only to then disable it. Oh well, so be it. I am still laughing though!! Is this all to do with the Network Cable unplugged problem? If so I assume I will be able to re-enable it if needed?

Okay, the startup time from Starting Windows' to the Windows logon screen yesterday was 1min 10 seconds, two startup's today were completed as above in 51 seconds, an Olympic record on this PC.

11 out of 10 to you all.

Just realized that you cannot find a post # if your replying here. So I opened another copy of this thread, you're right, I posted the wrong screenshot in #44 that one is the 'before' instead of the 'after I clicked them all to off' I have unchecked them and the troubleshooter report now shows no problems.

Tray notification drop down; I did know that one but Kies has never shown up, I thought perhaps I had missed another drop down somewhere!

I will uninstall iTunes and Quicktime later.

I have CCleaner so will run as you advise, but am not sure about Temp files, Not long ago I did clear these out and had the devils own job with a program looking for a file that was in the Temp, or Temp Internet folder, for the life of me I cannot remember what the program was which is annoying. If I copied the folders somewhere else then I guess that would be okay? I should then be able to retrieve any lost files.

I will reboot now and run Old Timer-TFC.

Back soon

Regards
Alan.

Hi Alan ... It was not all about the Driver .. Sure if you need to use the Lan connection again just enable it .. Just leave the temp files alone as you state your not long after deleting them .. I still think you should use the Lan Cable as you would probably get around the 40 Mb just my opinion ..
