Windows 7: Slow start-up BEFORE login screen

12 Sep 2011   #11

MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Let me know when you complete steps in thread post #7.

Since you've paid for Norton, then you will be able to reinstall at anytime.

Windows 7 Professional x64

The last few posts were not Norton issues and were solved as follows:

* for the incompatible crlscsi.sys driver that was trying unsuccessfully to load at boot-up/start-up, I used Autoruns to disable/delete them from running

* for the Event ID 10 WMi Error, I applied the Microsoft Fix it here:
Event ID 10 is logged in the Application log after you install Service Pack 1 for Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2

Note that while neither of these event viewer errors were actually slowing down the computer at start-up, the original problem at the start of the thread WAS from an issue with NIS 2012 in conjunction with disabling Safe Search which led to NIS 2012 freezing and not closing properly. Once back to NIS 2011, the start-up was relatively normal again, leaving only the three event viewer errors.

After the Starting Windows screen a blank black screen with a cursor that I can move pops up that lasts a minute (shouldn't happen with SSD, used to be ~10 second boot). Afterwards the login screen will appear as normal and everything works as normal. This doesn't happen when I boot into safe mode....
