    Initially I suspected the problems were occurring due to issues with McAfee Security Centre. I have the following installed on my laptop (Security Centre build: 9.15.179; Virus Scan build: 13.15.117; Personal firewall build: 10.15.106; SiteAdvisor build: 2.8.306). However after consulting with McAfee Support & reinstalling McAfee the problems have not been resolved. Maybe I have been completely off the mark.

    I would greatly appreciate any help.

    Best regards

    Ashraf

  • Did you test the behavior with McAfee removed from the system? (You only indicated you reinstalled it.)

    Check Andre's guides for boot and shutdown traces - run through them and upload your traces to SkyDrive, and provide a link.

  • Yes, follow my guide an make the traces,

    Also try to request the hotfix:

    KB975777 - There is a delay when you shut down, restart, or log off a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2

    The taskhost.exe is hanging during shutdown and this fix, tries to solve it.

    best regards

    Sorry to be bothering again but although I dont get the Taskhost failed notice while shut down (and also the shut down is much faster than before) I got these warnings now:

  • Hi,


    follow my guide [1] to make a boot and a shutdown trace [1] and compress the 2 trace files (the etl files) as 7z or RAR and upload it to your Skydrive [2] and post the link here.

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

    regards

  • Hi Ashraf,

    I've check the log and the shutdown looks normal.

    < timing shutdownTime =" 13555 " servicesShutdownDuration =" 5040 " >

    Your Windows takes 13,5s to shutdown. Shutdown the services takes 5s, shutdown all running programs takes 4 seconds and the rest 4 seconds take the Windows kernel to shutdown.

    No, to your boot.

    It takes 60 seconds to boot to the Desktop and 65seconds to completely boot:

    timing bootDoneViaExplorer =" 59664 " bootDoneViaPostBoot =" 75964 "

    The hugest delay occurs during the ExplorerInit Phase.

    < interval name =" ExplorerInit " startTime =" 25916 " endTime =" 59664 " duration =" 33748 " >

    The ExplorerInit subphase begins when Explorer.exe starts. During ExplorerInit, the system creates the desktop window manager (DWM) process, which initializes the desktop and displays it for the first time.

    When I look at the trace I see, that the McAfee services ( McAfee SiteAdvisor Service, MpfService ) are causing the huge delay!

    So remove McAfee and use other faster tools.

    Try Avira AntiVir [1] or Microsoft Security Essentials [2].

    An other thing is that the Roxio Services (RoxioUpnpService9.exe, RoxLiveShare9.exe and RoxWatch9.exe ) are taking a huge time to start.

    Als the service RapportMgmtService ("C:\Program Files\Trusteer\Rapport\bin\RapportMgmtService.exe") takes a longer time to start.

    Do you need them all?

    After installing the new AntiVirus tools run the boot optimization [3] I've shown on msfn.org to train the advanced boot prefetcher "Readyboot". This will improve tyour boot a lot.


    best regards
    André

  • Hello Andre and thank you VERY much for the help. I am in the process of following your suggestions. However I do have one more query. These steps will speed up my boot but why do I keep getting these following errors every time I boot?

    Windows logs the boot times every time. In your case the log says Windows takes 126s to boot, which is too slow. That's why it is marked as critical.

    Has the optimization worked?

    Is Windows now faster in booting?

  • Hey Andre. After running your optimization I have the following error log timings:

    Warning    21/06/2010 8:01:42    Diagnostics-Performance    200    Shutdown Performance Monitoring

    Windows has shutdown:

    Critical    21/06/2010 8:01:43    Diagnostics-Performance    100    Boot Performance Monitoring

    Windows has started up:

         Incident Time (UTC)    :    ‎2010‎-‎06‎-‎21T06:59:19.656000300Z

    From what I understand the start up has definitely sped up. But the errors seems persistent! Any ideas?

    PS: I really do appreciate all your help! Thanks a lot.

    Best regards

  • The boot is still slow (104 seconds). Have you removed McAfee and the Roxio Services?

    if yes and if the boot is still slow, make a new boot trace with the link I already gave you and upload the new trace.

  • Hello Andre. My sincerest apologies for taking so long to get back to this issue. If you read our conversations on top, the situation has further worsened. The no of errors/warnings have gone up significantly. I have already made traces (boot and shut down) and they are HERE . In case you need HERE is the old trace file.

    With regards to uninstalling McAfee, unfortunately as I had already paid for the subscription and thus I am hoping to somehow keep it? Is there simply no other way? I have posted on McAfee website and am currently in contact with their technical team to see what they have to say about this. I will update you as soon as I hear from them.

    Since your post earlier I had been in contact with Rapport and they have done a lot of testing and tweaking on my laptop and now assures me there is nothing wrong with it. They assure its not causing in system boot or shut down degradations. However if you still note that as a problem I can get rid of it for good.

    I am also going to follow your suggestions from HERE to speed up the boot process. If you need I can run traces again and upload to Skydrive.

    I look forward to hearing back from you.

    Best regards

    Ashraf

    I've checked the new trace and I can still see that McAfee is doing a lot of HDD activity.

    Remove it and make the optimization again.

  • Believe this Boot Performance Monitoring event may be caused by another event. By applying the fix to what I thought was unrelated, my boot and shutdown times are now normal again.

    Check if you have a Microsoft-Windows-Wininit Event ID 11. The description is as follows: "Custom dynamic link libraries are being loaded for every application. The system administrator should review the list of libraries to ensure they are related to trusted applications.

    If you are seeing this Custom dynamic link libraries load issue. The fix is a change to a registry value:

    Use REGEDIT, navigate to the line below and change the value for LoadAppInit_DLLs from 1 to 0.

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\Windows\LoadAppInit_DLLs

    If you're interested, this Event ID 11 issue attempts to point to the C:\Windows\system32\nvinitx.dll file as the possible problem. However, after checking with nVidia we have concluded it is not. After some time I finally ran across this fix but don't have the thread or site information available at the moment.

    Hope this helps. It certainly took care of my boot times.
