Windows 7: Huge rebot time

Guys, I just remembered something about Avast! Turn off Deep Scan [or is it deepscan?] -- the option that if clicked that tells Avast to scan each and every file that is called up into memory or into action or simply read. I forgot to mention this earlier. I'm not talking about the regular Scans that can be scheduled or run on demand. I think it's in Settings, it's the deep scan by itself. I'm not at home, so I do have not Avast in front of me.

Removing Avast and installing MSE or Panda was for testing purposes

I uninstalled KB2823324 but just wondering as windows update is set to auto .. shouldn't it download this again on next update/scheduled update check?

BTW I forgot to answer the question about dropping, yes infact I did, but about an year ago ... i never had these issues back then.

Also I installed ultra defrag (ultradefrag-portable-6.0.4.bin.i386) .. it suggests that the disk needs to be repaired and speccy, attached are the screenshots you requested.

Yep until you Hide the update it will reappear
It will already download and will install as soon as you restart or shut down,

So changing windows update setting is mandatory

Not likely, but when a disk starts misbehaving, anything is possible.

The process tests the drives ability to read and write data, if there is a problem, it moves the data to a good location on the platter and marks the old location as bad so that location isn't used.

If the drive is REALLY bad there isn't a good location to move the data. I don't think your drive is in that situation, but you won't know until you can clear the dirty bit.

Do you have the install disc? You can use that instead of a Repair disc to run chkdsk.

Boot the install disc, and slect Repair , the select Command prompt - the rest of the instructions are the same as my previous post (skip the part for creating the Repair disc).

Running chkdsk without options does more than just report. I have one drive that refuses to be 'clean'. I've tried manually flipping the readonly, offline, and dirty bit flags, but the only way to 'fix' that drive is to run a readonly chkdsk (no options)

If that gets your drive visible again (I forget where you showed the C: drive not shown), then definitively run a chkdsk /f. Hold off on the /r option until later - let's see how far you get.

PlatypusKnight mentioned an update specific to Dell machines that might have some bearing on the issue, I'm not aware of anything like that, but will research it and defer to that member.

Try booting to Safe mode with networking to create the Repair disc

I also suggest running in safe mode for the duration of the trouble shooting.

@gabe22 Thanks for the screenshots. Can you open Speccy again and tell me what kind of drive your HDD is. I can see your SMART status is good, so that's a plus.

I agree with @slartybart. Before booting into safe mode though, please ensure that the windows update we discussed earlier has been removed, and has been hidden.

Please download the Ultimate Windows Tweaker. You can find it here:
http://www.thewindowsclub.com/ultima...indows-7-vista

Unzip and then run the .exe.

Click the [User Accounts & UAC] tab and click [Restore Defaults] at the bottom.
Please click the [Additional Tweaks] tab and check the box beside [Disable Hibernation].
Reboot the computer. See if the issues have resolved themselves. (I doubt this will be the case.) Check if UltraDefrag still reports that your C: drive needs repair. If it does not, run a defrag.

Then, please boot into safe mode.


Once there, please click the [Start] button and type cmd. Right click [cmd.exe] and then click [Run as administrator].

Please type:

Code:
sfc /scannow
Allow that to complete. Let me know if it identifies any integrity violations, and if it repaired them.

Thereafter please type

Code:
chkdsk
It should run in read only mode.

Let me know what the results are. Screenshot would be preferable.

If it runs for you, please then type

Code:
chkdsk /f
Let me know what the results are. Screenshot would be preferable.

Please follow this tutorial to provide the current operating environment of your machine.
Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs

PlatypusKnight: Just a friendly - Windows Seven really doesn't require 3rd party Tweaker pgms. There are a lot of tutorials that show members how to safely affect changes. See the ones below and bookmark them so you can use them later. It takes a while to find them, even if you search, this might help.

What is it that you want Tweaker to do?
I see set UAC to default and disable hibernation - these are easy to do without a 3rd party pgm
User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings
Hibernate - Enable or Disable

Please follow the instructions in OPTION TWO of SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Copy C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log to your Desktop (it is a protected file so you cannot attach the original)

Attach the copy of the entire CBS.log to a new post.

Thanks

It's not that you said anything that was incorrect, it's just that the tutorials really help both members (they get the step-by-step instructions and the data needed gets posted without too much trouble - sometimes you do have to remind another member that there's a step they missed .

@ Slartybart

Here is the speccy OS snapshop url: http://speccy.piriform.com/results/6...kzYl8NFl31fNsn

@ PlatypusKnight

I think the url above should have the HDD info you requested.

Guys I think I have some good news .. finally!

When I tried to reboot in safe mode using advanced boot option (F8 Key) .. I thought to try out windows repair option again and this time it worked.

It found error on disk drive and next it said if the fix worked, system should restart fine, which it did ..
Also I just ran ultradefrag and it doesn't show any messages on C drive status.
Just ran " defrag -a c: " and it shows no diry bit message and C drive is back on windows default tool (screenshot attached)

Now I'm gonna run a full chkdsk scan on all drives and defrag too, will post back the results afterwards.

@ Callender

I installed Soluto ... I'm failry new to this, can you please advise what info do you need? and how do I send them to you?

***** Also I was checking the custom boot time event viewer that we created and it seem to have all my boot log ... it seems my systems very first boot time(I'm not 100% certain but its very likely that it is the first boot/2nd boot) is listed and the strange thing is .. it seem to have taken quite a while for a brand new system with clean windows and almost nothing installed (compared to its present status) .. screenshot attached ... please advise how to fix this slow boot (if possible)

@ Slartybart

Do you still need the CBS log file?
