Windows 7: How can I step through the boot sequence - to find what is causing err

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
How can I step through the boot sequence - to find what is causing err

Hi Folks,

I installed some system tool trials, and de-installed most of them ...

But now when I boot the Laptop, I see some error messages flash by .. late in the boot process, well after the Windows animation starts.

Is there a way to step through starting of the services to see what is generating the errors ? I tried the "F5" key and the "F8" key ..

My environment:
Manufacturer LENOVO
Model 4239CTO (CPU)
Version ThinkPad T520
MS Windows 7 64-bit SP1
Boot Disk:
Manufacturer Kingston
Product Family SSDNow
Interface SATA-2
Form Factor 2.5-inch

Thanks all ..

What "System Tool trials" did you install, and how were they uninstalled?

Check msconfig>Startup and >Services (after hiding all MS Services) to see if remnants remain. Use google to determine the listings.
