BootSmssInitTime RRS feed

  • Question

  • My Windows 7 startup and shutdown has become a crawl. The only event viewer entry that indicates a long delay on startup is BootSmsinitTime. Have HP P2660f with Seagate 500 gb external. No difference at start-up whether external is connected or not. Below is the log. Can anyone help. I admit I am not a computer tec but wish to avois the godawful HP support from a foreign land from someone that can't speak understandable english.

  • Hi Butteguy, you can look for clues for problems using Action Centre too.

    Open Action centre - go to Maintenance section - in the topmost section 'Check for Solutions to Problem reports' click the option - View Reliability History, Reliability Monitor will then run and generate a Report. In the report you can check for warnings and Errors in there. This could give you some further clues. You can view by Days or Weeks..

    What programs do you have loading at startup? Try using msconfig.exe (type it in the search box at the start button) check for listed startup items, try unselecting one/some at a time and see if you can determine the software causing the delay.
