Hi.

For last 2-3 monthes my PC is hanging for exactly 5 minutes on every OS restart.

Using msconfig I discovered that hanging disapear if I turn off the "Network Store Interface Service" service.
But when "Network Store Interface Service" service is Off then PC does not have access to network.

Could you please advice - what further actions I could take to resolve this problem?
How to find out what could be wrong win NSI service and fix it?

Computer: Win 7 Ultimate x64, Core i5-4570, 4Gb RAM.

Thank you in advance,
Dmitry.

How many network cards do you have on this PC? From the looks of it you are connected to a domain. Further it looks like your DNS server settings may be the cause of the long restarts. Can you disable all but one of the network connections and see which one (or more) may be the cause? Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections. And you also seem to have virtual machines--can you turn those off and see if that gets rid of the problem.

Seems it helped - I cut down the list of DNS suffixes and now system starts in 2.5 minutes.

So, I changed it to be like this:
DNS Suffix Search List. . . . . . : dev.corp.local
                                       bda.corp.local
                                       corp.local
                                       phx.bda.com
                                       dom1.redpra.com
                                       redpra.com
                                       perflabrps.dom2.redpra.com
                                       devlabrps.dom2.redpra.com
                                       dom2.redpra.com
                                       res.redpra.com
                                       vpn.redpra.com
                                       vpn.corp.local
                                       redpralabs.net
                                       hosted.local
                                       stk.redpra.com

So, I removed following DNS suffixes:
                                       tech.manu.com
                                       manu.com
                                       i2.com
                                       escalate.com
                                       gers.com
                                       vortexconnect.com
                                       omegaoptimisation.com
                                       redpralabs.net
                                       hostedbyrads.net

Unfortunately all DNS suffixes are pushed via domain politics, so it is not predicatble when system will install them again. Maybe I need to setup a script to enforce certain DNS suffixes list on every restart/shutdown to avoid such problems.

I tried to disable network interfaces but it was not changed anything.
Actually I'm not surprised because I know that VmWare network interafces usually never cause any problems, at least I have never seen such.

So, it looks like the DNS was the problem for sure. But I'm not sure if I could cut down OS start time more than 2.5 minutes?...

I would be more concerned about the DNS search order. It sounds like you PC is searching for the DNS to logon to the domain (to pass the username and password to) but is taking a long time to find it so the order of the DNS's matter. Thus my suggestion to verify your network connection settings--it seems it is DHCP--try static and stipulate your domain's domain controller as your primary DNS and see if that resolves the issue.

I'm always login to my PC when domain is offline, because I'm working from home.
To connect domain I need to turn On the Cisco VPN (which is only possible to do after login; there is no way to turn on VPN before login).

So, even if OS will try to search for domain to login it will not find it - for sure.

About DHCP - it is ok to use DHCP, because IP address is assigned by router (D-Link DIR-320). And IP address is linked to MAC, so it will always assign the same address.
I do not want to change it to static IP, because DHCP is more convenient in my case.

Btw, you asked "sc query nsi", here it is:
D:\> sc query nsi

SERVICE_NAME: nsi
        TYPE               : 20  WIN32_SHARE_PROCESS
        STATE              : 4  RUNNING
                                (STOPPABLE, NOT_PAUSABLE, IGNORES_SHUTDOWN)
        WIN32_EXIT_CODE    : 0  (0x0)
        SERVICE_EXIT_CODE  : 0  (0x0)
        CHECKPOINT         : 0x0

I was talking about the server having s attic IP not your PC where DHCP is common practice--no problems with that. So when you did the ipconfig /all you did it after you were connected via VPN. Please do an ipconfig /all before you connect because the problem has to do with the slow PC on reboots.

Slow PC?! No, for sure this is not slow PC!
Core i5-4570, 8Gb RAM, Intel Z87 chipset.

Next thing - I did ipconfig /all before I connected via VPN (not after!).
Just for a case I'm showing below the ipconfig /all after VPN is connected:
