Windows 7 slow boot after install workstation 7

Hi,

I installed Vmware Workstation 7 on a Windows 7 computer (4 gig ram, 2.8 ghz dual core intel). After the installation my computer takes about 7 minutes to boot, it seems to be waiting for something. What is causing this and how can I disable this?

Regards

net start <service name> and net stop <service name> would help you to start & stop services accordingly.
Open a notepad and save the commands as a list and then save the file with a *.bat extension.
Run the same batch file when you login and logoff.

Try to disable 2 new Virtual NICs under Network Connections namely VMware NIC 1 and VMware NIC 8 and check.
Run the command "msconfig" under run and check the list of programs you are autostarting when the system starts.

It has something to do with the vmware services. If I disable the vmware service the computer boots normal, but then (ofcourse) vmware isn't working...

I'll try to disable the NICs

Disabling the VMware NICs doesn't work, any other ideas?

Try disabling the 2 Services (VMware NAT & VMware DHCP Service).
Start them only when you need to use either NAT or Host-only mode.

I've figured out that by disabling the service 'VMware authorization services" my computer boots normal. However, now I can't use vmware when this service is disabled... any ideas?

Use a batch script to automate the starting of VMware dependent services @ login & logoff so that you can use the script to execute with which the required services would be started and stopped accordingly.

Do you have an example of such a script?
