Slow shut-down and re-boot in Win 7 Ultimate

    Question

  • I have a HP I5 with 8 MB RAM, Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit installed.  It takes the system a very long time to complete a shut-down or re-boot.  Any help on speeding up that process??  Using Norton 360 for firewall / anti-virus.

    You might wanna consider removing norton and get some other internet security like kaspersky, MSE, AVG, Avast and see whether it improves

    You post this same misleading reply to many different messages. See

  • I don’t recommend any third party programs to help other than malwarebytes, rkill, and ms security essentials.  I would first download rkill, run it, run malwarebytes full scan.  Check programs installed to and get rid of the junk like any toolbar, registry cleaner and odd looking programs.  Check your startup folder in the programs folder within the start button to make sure it is empty.  run msconfig.exe, go to the services tab, check the Hide all Microsoft services box (unless you want to disable tablet and smartcard services), uncheck services that waste memory, such as Google update, abobe services, Mozilla, any and ALL blank ones (that’s most likely spyware), macromedia, etc.. (I only leave iPod services, apple, mobile devices, bonjour service, and any needed licensing services running.  Then go to the startup tab.  Uncheck all unnecessary boxes; I only leave usb 3.0 monitor and Microsoft security client checked.  Click apply. And restart.  Run disk cleanup and clean as an administrator.  Run a disk defragmenter (windows tools are fine but dos is more thorough).  lastly to give the net speed a boost, run cmd as an administrator, then type "netsh winsock reset", wait, then type "ipconfig /flushdns", wait, then type "ipconfig /renew".

    The steps above will clean and renew how windows 7 runs better than originally installed and ANY factory preloaded software.  Once again, third party registry and cleanpc programs ARE NOT THE ANSWER, CLEAN PROGRAMMING IS THE BEST.

    Example:  Your house gets dirty; you clean it, not through rugs on top the mess.

    Also, whithin MSCONFIG, in the BOOT tab, change the timeout to 3 seconds, click the advanced options button and limit the # of processors to how many processors and/or cores your processesor has, limith the maximum memory to the amount of ram you have, checking it should calculate it automaticaly.   Lastly if you wanted to readjust the page file 3 the be set at 3 times the amount of ram you have that will help windows from constantly readjusting/calculating the swap.  hope this helps.
