Windows 7: Win7 32-bit slow (what am I doing wrong?)?

Win7 32-bit slow (what am I doing wrong?)?

Please don't reply if you don't have 32-bit!-
I have a fast I5-6600 processor, Gigabyte MB, 100mbps cable internet, latest Samsung SSD, 4 gig of DDR4 memory (wish they made 2gb DDR4, so I could use dual channels!).


My usual startup/restart procedure-
I don't move my cursor until 11min after startup (on 1st cold startup it takes over 1hr to load, and IE11 browser... is unusable).
I then have to reboot 3 more times (1hr each, until SSD stops burping..., and system settles down).
So its after supper, until I can surf...


Win7 has been slow since Win10 came out, and I'm going to upgrade if I can't figure out a better way...!?
I have friends with Win10, and it's Much faster!

Something wrong there it could be anything is it the same in safe mode did you install it to ssd or copy it as 7 needs special settings for ssd. It's back to basic like running a full disk check checking for disk firmware update running sfc /scannow check what's running at start. With SSD you would expect startup to be 15-25 seconds

Hi Scott,

lets get IE11 outa the way for starters, (take it you use another browser)

Control panel >> Programs/Features >> Features (top left)
A small panel will open UNcheck IE11 >> Reboot.

any improvement??

AS it takes so long to get up and running, might as well slip in a couple of other repair jobs
Run SURT, KB947821 - considering you problems it could take a couple of hours

and set up a disk check. from a admin command prompt chkdsk /r
chkdsk, will run after reboot

what Gigabyte board do you have, scottls59901?
use Speccy to gather more accurate hardware specs as "latest Samsung SSD" seems vague

Have you tried a clean boot to try to pinpoint what's causing the problem?

For starters, run msconfig.exe. In the Startup tab, check the box to disable all. Reboot. Does that help?

If not, run msconfig.exe again and, in the Services tab, check the box to "hide all microsoft" and then the box to disable all. Reboot.

Just wanted to mention that the "latest" is the Samsung 960 EVO or 960 EVO Pro. Actually, I think the latest is the Samsung NVME which is supposed to perform as well as the Intel Optane but the price is exorbitant.

He didn't mention if he tried the clean boot efforts.

Hey Roy:
Thanks for the info...!
Q?- Is chkdsk /r as admin, the same as regular chkdsk with the recover option (I've already run that)?
