Windows 7: Windows 7 takes long time to boot after installing drivers

Windows 7 takes long time to boot after installing drivers


Because of the errors reported by the action center i installed the WD SES driver, another WD driver, USB 3 driver and Marvell Console driver.

After that my PC started taking long time to boot. Usually it booted fast, now it is taking more than a minute at the windows logo screen.

I thought this was caused by the Marvell console driver. So I tried to uninstall it, but couldn't find the uninstaller, so I uninstalled it with Driver Fusion. It didn't help. Then I uninstalled every program/driver I installed on that day. Windows 7 takes long time to boot after installing drivers-2.png
Clearing CMOS didn't help either. Now i ran sfc/scannnow and it did not find any integrity violations. I managed to find the right logs by googling and i see I have a lot of Critical levels and Errors. Windows 7 takes long time to boot after installing drivers-3.png
I have attached all the Operational logs from 24.10.2013 when i did a complete reinstall.

I have no idea what to do, please help.

Never mind, loading optimized defaults in BIOS solved the problem :)

It's stuck on the Windows Starting screen for about 30 seconds, usually it only takes a few seconds. I'm on Windows 7 and was messing around with the fan settings in the BIOS. I don't think that's it since I changed to back default settings to make sure. Any idea on what's going on? ...
