Windows 7: Extremely slow boot up

Hey, I have updated my previous post. Sorry about the double post.

[edit] I got log files but I'm unsure if I'm allowed to link them here.

On startup, always have your antivirus program to launch automatically for system safety. But glad to hear that your startup seems to have improved.

2 to 3 minutes compared to 8 minutes is a huge improvement. My restart is 97 seconds.

Note that what is happening when you see the "Starting Windows" splashscreen is enumerating hardware (via PnP) and loading drivers for hardware found, and starting services (not all of them, but most of the "Automatic" ones and any driver services). Smss.exe is started, which spawns winlogon, services, csrss, lsass, and a few other things, after hardware is enumerated and drivers loaded. If you're delaying where you say you are, it's possible it's a driver load causing an issue.

To get a *real* good idea of what's happening, you really need more info in the boot trace:
Note that this command *will* slow down the boot process (quite a bit) on it's own, and the resulting file will be quite large.

If you run that and ultimately get another .ETL trace, you could zip it up and post it to a fileshare host, at which point we could download and take a look for clues.

Extremely slow boot speed
The speed used to be optimal, but in the past weeks it increased up to 4 minutes which is insane. I disabled most of non microsoft services and startup programs but it does not decrease at all. If you need any further logs/info feel free to ask. Thank you - Tom
