Windows 7: Terrible Lag at Startup

05 Aug 2012   #41


K, am doing that now.
Do I need to do everything (startup, shutdown, sleep, hibernate, and reboot), or just startup?

Just startup if that's the only problem.

Once you upload the zipped file to a file server like MS Skydrive available in any Windows Live/Hotmail account, post back the link and PM the tutorial's author to consult on it.

Ok, the tutorial told me to go to Windows SDK: Download the Windows SDK for Windows 7 and More | MSDN and download the SDK. However, the "Install Now" link doesn't work. The "Archive" link works. It leads me to Download: Microsoft Windows 7 SDK - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details. However, when I google for the "Microsoft Windows SDK", it gives me Download: Microsoft Windows SDK 7.1 - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details. Which one do I use?

I cannot install the setup because I get this error while installing

"A problem occurred while installing selected Windows SDK components.
Installation of the "Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7" product has reported the following error: Please refer to Samples\Setup\HTML\ConfigDetails.htm document for further information."

However, the Samples\Setup\HTML\ConfigDetails.htm document DOES NOT EXIST!

MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

For the record: I use and recommend Revo Uninstaller which is,in my opinion, far superior to the MS uninstaller.

K, I uploaded all the files from the boot trace. They are located at:
1) https://www.***************/files/
2) https://www.***************/files/
3) https://www.***************/files/
4) https://www.***************/files/

Oh, I extracted the CAB file contents and just put the stuff inside into a ZIP file instead. Sorry about the long file names
Please help me find out what I can possibly do to speed up my system at startup.

In looking at this trace, nothing really sticks out until you dig into the CPU and disk - there's only two things consuming CPU and disk (from second 0, the start of the trace, to the very end). First is trucrypt - it is consuming (by FAR) the most CPU on the box, the whole time, and it's also causing a large number of interrupts and DPC calls compared to everything else on the box. Also, once the shell is called (and it takes it almost 30 seconds to start - this should happen in under 5 seconds) bitcoin starts. This thing is hitting the disk like it's going out of style, consuming (by far) all of the disk time and starving the rest of the system for access to the disk.

I'd wager if you removed trucrypt and bitcoin (and then a good disk defrag afterwards, of course), your problems would go away. Removing trucrypt might be difficult, but it's running like crap, honestly. It's the main CPU and system resource problem, but (because Windows booting is VERY hard on disks due to all the random I/O that happens) having bitcoin running makes this 10 times worse.

K, I'll take your suggestions into consideration. Firstly, I do a lot of business with Bitcoins, so I need it to run at startup, but I understand what you mean. Secondly, I have encrypted my system with Truecrypt for security reason, but I also understand that it slows my system down.
