Windows 7: Slow boot

16 Sep 2010   #1

Slow boot

Solved: It was my A/V: My Dell Laptop boots into Windows 7 in an acceptable time; a minute or so. I see my antivirus load and my Dexpot desktop switcher, but then it's another five minutes before I can do anything as something is still trying to load I presume and then it's just fine; no slow ups. I see NDProxy.sys is a common complaint; which doesn't load here also srv.sys doesn't load. Is there a way to disable these as they aren't loading anyways and everything works OK once I am finally booted up. Here is my ntblog.txt
Also what are the ??'s Loading driver ie \??\C:\Program Files (x86)\LogMeIn\x64\RaInfo.sys

go into msconfig and disable everything in the startup tab and reboot. You will still be able to use all of your programs and your AV will still work, but you'll have to start other programs manually. That should speed your boot time up significantly. If you have problems you can always enable specific items, but almost all startup items in msconfig are not necessary to run your computer

Scan your HD with Malwarebytes and MS Security Essentials. Uninstall any AV to leave MSE as real time protection. You may need to leave it checked in msconfig, tho.

Remove the virtual desktop manager and LogMeIn programs using Revo in Advanced mode to see if boot returns to normal.

Google repeat errors in Performance Log on Advanced Tools page accessed by clicking WEI score at Computer>Properties.

This is in addition to defrag drive, run msconfig and check services (BE CAREFUL), run malwarebytes, remove unnecessary startup programs...

IF you really want a fast boot, try linux.. takes 9 seconds from POST to internet connectivity in my Dell D800

I've been using Linux for years; three flavours on my PC, but tired of fighting to get things to work that Windows 7 does pretty much without a hitch, so my Ubuntu, Fedora and Suse are gathering dust.

This is one of the best boot analysis tools I have used:
Soluto

You should be up in 30-40 secs max without excess startup apps.

Thanks, Mexman, I had never heard of Soluto. It is quite an impressive utility and, in my estimation, a piece of beautifully written software.

I was unable to achieve anything close to the 30-40 seconds you mentioned.

In fact, Soluto indicates my AVG Internet Security alone takes 33 seconds of boot time.

As Soluto goes about attempting to assist in the reduction of boot time resources, it carries its own small penalty at boot time and in system resources.

As of this posting, I believe those penalties to be worth it and, to be fair, the software is self-proclaimed to be beta. Even with all that said, I love this utility. It is smartly presented; the User Interface is innovative and very easy to use.

Mexman, great find and, again, thanks for presenting it.

welcome, My boot time refers to when the Starting Windows splash screen starts to a USABLE desktop. You may want to try Avast and delay it. I get about 30 secs on an old athlon 2800 and 12 secs on my AMD 710 with a Kingston 64GB SSD. Highly recommend that SSD! lol

Looking at your SS's tho, you have a problem in your unremoveable apps. Check that your floppy is disabled in Bios and that u dont have a SOLID color desktop (that cost me 30secs!), Procmon from sysinternals is helpful too, Options/enable boot logging, REBOOT, then Tools, process activity summary. I think u may need to uncheck File/Capture events before startiing as well.
