Windows 7: Boot lag at bios logo

09 May 2009   #1

Boot lag at bios logo

I have this weird issue since i installed Comodo Firewall 3.9
I start the computer, the bios logo loads up, it takes 1.5 mins (like 10 sec before) till it continues to the windows boot manager, from there on everything works fine.

So far ive updated my bios, loaded the defaults without any success.
I also disabled my bios "quick boot" feature, and it seems that it lags for 1.5mins at the point where it checks that everything is ok, it says something like: CPU: amd athlon 64...xxxx, thats where it takes 1.5mins, then continues to test memory etc but that took too long for me, and i ran a memtest 2 days ago without any problems.

I wondered if it could be in any way possible that the firewall i installed is causing the problem, as far as i know its not officially W7 compatible.

Some specs that might be useful:
ASUS Crosshair (Newest bios)
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+
2GB of DDR2 memory
Ask if you need any other information.

If it only happened since you installed Comodo, then maybe try uninstalling it again to see if it returns to normal, if it does then just try using the Windows Firewall, it's all I am using with Windows 7 and it does as good a job as any.

If thats the case, ill use Windows own firewall too, is there anything i should configure to make it safe?

I do need antivirus though? I havent really taken a look at windows defender.

EDIT: Didint help to uninstall it.

Maybe you could try a system restore and if that doesn't work then maybe a Repair Install will work better, you could also try opening an elevated command prompt and type sfc /scannow

I also installed comodo with vista compatibility.
I reseted my bios with the jumpper, and it worked perfectly, I booted to windows 7, though i got an error, and a screen popped up where i could choose to repair windows or boot normally, my pc froze needed to reboot, then the boot lag continued again.
This time i was able to enter the repair state, but windows couldnt repair the error, what I did was to unplug all stuff again then clear my cmos with the jumpper again, then boot with the w7 install dvd and reinstall windows.

Well, not going to install any firewalls for now, looks like windows' default firewall works very good.
(btw if your going to try clear your cmos, read your motherboards user manual)
