Windows 7: Long Boot Time after shutdown

Just an update, so far still booting in under 50 seconds in morning; excellent.

I'll get to installing the cannon MP495 wireless printer by end of week. If it functions fine, I won't really know the original issue per se

Installed the Canon MP495 wireless printer software and driver tonight, so far no issues, even with printer off - will see what happens tomorrow morning. It put 2 applications in startup (My Printer - BjMyPrt.exe and Solution Menu EX - CNSEMAIN.EXE). Soluto states it takes 2 seconds and 1 second respectively, so I'll leave it in startup for now.

Also, when pausing or delaying via Soluto, it disappears from msconfig/startup - any concern there? what happens if you don't have Soluto and want to put it back?

Thanks

All has been well for days, but this morning I got a "
DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER"

never seen this before, I pressed the power off and power on button and it booted fine

Today it took long to boot, in fact, it didn't complete, I saw the Windows busy blue circle on my network icon, and then disk activity stopped. I forced power off, then used Last Known Configuration.

I haven't used system restore as yet, but one of the last items listed is Windows Modules Installer (twice). When I look at my services in msconfig, this service is set to manual, and is Stopped.

I would System Restore to before the Update, or uninstall the Update then reinstall to see what happens.

Long boot again, hour glass on top of networking icon in lower right. I had to shut down, it started fine in Safe Mode with Networking, & Firefox connected fine to internet. Then restarted with Last Known Configuration, also fine. Last windows update was on 2/23, and PC worked fine till today (haven't turned it on since 2 days ago 3/1, but again, nothing changed since 2/23).

Having said that, I'm not sure a system restore to a previous date will solve anything, it almost seems possessed, as it boots perfectly fine now - I simply don't get it.

Btw, Soluto couldn't load when I first booted, so I couldn't tell if there was a service or program freezing the computer, but I did notice slow blinking disk light, and resource monitor showed 100% for disk usage - maybe someone can educate me how to determine what is the activity or process that was taking the 100% of disk activity.

The sure-fire way to trace boot hangs is by running the trace tool from MSFN, whose Cluberti we are fortunate to have around here: Trace Windows 7 boot/shutdown/hibernate/standby/resume issues - MSFN Forum

Bit more info, had it shut down for over 48 hours, just turned it on, long boot, I heard the hard drive running / clicking, and I forced it to power off via the power button.

Restarted: it informed me that windows didn't shut down normally, and to select normal boot or safe mode. I selected normal boot, and all is fine.

I suppose anytime this happens, I can repeat the forced power off, but have to believe that will cause long term damage. But does that symptom point to anything anyone can think of? IP conflict?

I'm wondering what the PC resolves by immediately booting a 2nd time, with absolutely nothing changed.

I suppose alternatively I can also wait for the long boot to give me an option to restart, and see what happens thereafter. (since it seems to be fine after a reboot, oddly)

HD clicking normally means imminent failure. Back up all of your files and a Win7 backup image now.

Then run HD Diagnostics CD extended scan HD Diagnostic followed by Disk Check if necessary from System Recovery Options Command line.
