Critical Error - Microsoft-Windows-Diagnostics-Performance/Operational

    Question

  • I have been looking for an answer to this for months.  Can't seem to find one.  Lots of people with the same problem, but no one knows how to fit it.
    Critacal error EVERY time the systems boots.

    Windows has started up:

    Boot Duration : 137420ms

    IsDegradation : false

    Incident Time (UTC) : 22/02/2010 1:32:53 AM

    Boot time had become almost to long to stand it.  Sometimes 5-8 minutes before the systems is usable.  Intel E8500 3.166 proc with 4 gigs of memory.

    Does NO ONE @ Microsoft have an idea on how to fix this or even what to look for?

  • I fianlly got so sick and tired of it I backed up my machine, nuked the drives right down to deleting the partitions, formatting the drive, and installed Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.  Funny thing was I thought it was Vista that was messed up.  With Win7 installed I still had the same problem.

    So I started doing hardware diags and found a failure on the MOBO with the USB controller chipset. Something to do with the USB controller not generating interupts.  Had Dell replace the MOBO (still under warranty) . 

    Still get the critical error in the event logs but my boot times are 70-90 seconds instead of 5-6 minutes.

    Still don't know what the critical error is all about but having my MOBO replaced and moving to W7 Pro 64 Bit has helped considerably.  Not an answer for everyone but it has helped me.

  • Hi mary,

    Event 100 = slow boot time

    make sure you have the services Superfetch and ReadyBoost running and next try to speed up the boot with the help of my guide [1]. This trains the advanced prefetcher in Windows Vista. This increase the boot performance a lot. All other tweaking tools are useless. Only use this method with this Microsoft Toolkit.

    If this doesn't speed up the boot process, follow my guide [2] to make a boot trace and compress the boot_BASE+CSWITCH+DRIVERS+POWER_1.etl as 7z or RAR and upload it to your Skydrive [3] and post the link here.

    I take a look at the trace, maybe I see what's wrong with your Windows.
