Windows 7 Slow/Hanging Boot time RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey,

    My computer has been booting really slowly lately, but I can't seem to find what's causing it. It seems to get to the windows logo screen alright, but it takes a while to get passed it. Then either the screen goes black for about a full minute before the login screen comes up, or the login screen comes up and freezes for a minutes before I can type in my password. I've tried Process Monitor, but I cant make heads or tails of it. I've disabled virtually every non-standard startup service and programs, ran checkdisk, disk defragmenter, CC Cleaner(helped a lot), and a couple other things that I can't seem to recall at the moment. Most of it helped to speed it up, but it's still taking 3+ minutes to boot.
    I get 2-3 event warnings (101,102, 103) every boot, but they aren't consistently the same files, and have less than 1 second degradation times each.

    Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit SP1.
    Phenom II X4 820 Processor 2.8 GHz.
    GeForce GTX 460.
    8 GB RAM.
    15K RPM Hard Disk.
    Is on a domain.
