My Windows 7 Laptop takes an age to bootup. It is 1 Year old & it has always been great & very fast to boot up.

I have these issues in the Performance Section of Event Viewer relating to Bootup.

PreshellInit.exe 14Seconds Degrad.54 Seconds Total

CCC.exe (Catalyst Control Centre) 22S Degrad. 72S Total

MOM.exe 16S Degrad 66S Total

Svhost.exe 28S Degrad 88S Total

SqlServer.exe 38S Degrad 63S Total

Last two Total Bootup Times are 204472Ms & 227725Ms & are showing as Critical in event Viewer.

Could anyone help out with the diagnosis of what is causing this also maybe good to note if i disable the EventViewer Service the Laptop boots up in 40 Seconds ish...

HELP

Thanks in advance

Run malwarebytes can

Check for any spware.

If no spyware is no reported then uninstall all security software...reboot and check.

Hi

I uninstalled norton Internet security 2011, created anew profile moved everything from old profile to new & then installed norton Internet security 2012.

NIS-2012 did find a Trojan when I ran a full scan I'll try malware bytes over the weekend.

I've also purchased Driver Robot which scanned & downloaded updated drivers but I think that the driver robot program has a Trojan attached.

Thanks

"Could anyone help out with the diagnosis of what is causing this also maybe good to note if i disable the EventViewer Service the Laptop boots up in 40 Seconds ish..."

Assuming you are referring to the Windows Event Log service?

If so, disable it in the Services properties....

Reboot, and go to "C:\Windows\System32\winevt\Logs" create a new subfolder called Logs-OLD. Move all the logs over to the new folder you created.

Then enable and start the service. Should start to rebuild them..... Might Need to go back and only move some smaller amounts until you see which one is corrupted. This is what it sounds like the problem is.....

(Note: I have never had a reason to try this on Windows 7, but it is a variation of a similar process I have used many times on XP....)

Hi John

I have done this & it seems to have worked do I have to move the old logs back or can I simply leave it as it is?

Thanks
