Hi Guys,

Someone quite a while ago mentioned a programme that could tell me the time that each component in a Windows 7 enviroment would take to start up. I have a laptop that hangs on something when starting up and i need to find out which programme/ part of the laptop this is.
Does anyone know which software this would be or recommend any ?

Thanks

You can setup process monitor (procmon.exe) in boot logging mode.   (http://live.sysinternals.com/procmon.exe)

From the main menu choose "Options > Enable Boot Logging"

After rebooting open Process Monitor again and it will ask you if you want to open the boot time activity log.

The choose "Process Activity Summary" and look for processes that took a lot of resources.

If you want to refine the Process Activity Summary, you could look for where you think the bootup process began - right click the row and select "Exclude Events Before" then search for where it was done and right click the row and select "Exclude Events After".
