Booting time for installing windows is very long?

Q: Booting time for installing windows is very long?

Ok so the title explains it all. The booting time for any windows installation takes way too long. Does anyone know a fix for this. If there is none, its not that much of a big deal. But a fix would be nice. Also some windows programs take a while to also boot up their installation, like office 07.

Preferred Solution: Booting time for installing windows is very long?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi

Do a google on housekeeping for PC, its doing things like running msconfig, clearing the cache, IE file history, etc etc.

A:Very long wait time after booting into windows

Hi Earl,

Running a chkdsk /R will mark the sector such that it will not have data written to it.

Often, running sfc /scannow multiple times (try 3 times) will sometimes fix errors previously reported as not being able to be corrected.

Hello guys,

I have a problem with my computer that I cannot fix, I recently bought the AverTV Capture HD and plugged it into 1 of my free pci-express slots.

Now my computer takes like 20 extra seconds to boot to desktop, I replaced the card to another PCI-Express slot but the problem persists, when I remove the card it boots like before, with no IDLE.

My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-x58-UD5, latest Bios, latest drivers etc...

I don't know if it's the card or maybe the motherboard or just Windows 7.

This is a Winbootinfo screen to show you the IDLE time between the bios screen-win7 booting screen and @desktop.



Thank you guys I hope you could help me out I don't know what to do >_<!

You'll have to look in the bios for options. It may have a option to skip memory test, or fast post, or something like that.. Also, while your there, check the boot order for your drives.. You can significantly speed up booting if you tell it to boot from the hard drive first before checking other boot options.

A:PC takes a long time to finish booting

This is a common issue usually caused by software.

Have you run "Autoruns" to see what useless apps are strting with your machine?
remove anything non essential.

Also what security software are you using? Start-up based scans can really affect your boot time!

You could try clearing the windows "Prefetch", this part loads software that is commonly used to increase app loading speed. After loads of installs and removals you end up with a lot of obsolete files here. The prefetch will rebuild itself after a few system uses.

Use an offline defraggmenter to organsise your files into an order that will help this start faster (Not suitable for SSD users).

Ensure windows media player is not scanning for network shares, this can cause system and network lag.

Hi
After I boot my computer I cannot connect to the internet for a long time.
The resource monitor shows svchost.exe (Network Service) running CPU at a constant 25% and disk is often maxed out and plenty of hard faults
If I try to open network and sharing it will mostly fail - white screen with blue spinning circle and that will often cause windows explorer to restart - all icons and task bar disappears then reappears.

If I leave it then come back in 15 minutes or so it will have sorted itself out and svchost CPU use is down to 0

Any suggestions it is really annoying.

A:booting time too long, opening files/desktop takes Forever

Run SFC /SCANNOW to repair any errors. Run DISM /ONLINE /CLEANUP-IMAGE /RESTOREHEALTH to correct any errors SFC is unable to fix.

You may need to uninstall updates KB3022345 and the related update KB3068708 for SFC and DISM to run correctly - see DISM Command Fails

Use Autoruns to disable any startup programs, services and driver not required (be careful). I've just upgraded a system and found some of the boot delay was due to an external USB HDD having a partition marked Active instead of Inactive (I used Mini Tool Partition Wizard to adjust this).

Hi there,
 
For the last three or four times that Windows Updates (for Windows 7) have been installed (by automatic updates) my computer seems to be taking longer and longer.
Three hours or more is about the usual amount of time - I don't know how long exactly as I have waited, given up and gone to bed.
The system works in the morning apparently updated - but this seems to be very long.
Is that normal?
Is my system building up to something unpleasant?
 
Thanks

A:Installing Updates - Taking Long Time

If your system is using Windows 7 64 bit and you have 2GB of RAM or less, or 1GB on Windows 7 32 bit, then this may be the cause of your slow updates.  Updating can take a lot of resources.
 
For both systems I would recommend that you upgrade to at least 4GB of RAM. You may also want to run a check disk and look for bad sectors on your hard drive. Otherwise Windows will be Windows, remember while using Windows everything runs on Microsoft time :-D

A:Solved: Windows XP not booting after long line of problems...

If you're doing a hard drive format and clean reinstall of XP with a XP SP1 disc, you need to download and save and burn off the full 316 MB SP3 upgrade to a CD-R.

After XP SP1 is installed and the computer is restarted, use the CD-R to install the SP3 upgrade.

There's no need to install the SP2 upgrade first. You can go straight from SP1 to SP3.

After the SP3 upgrade is installed and the computer is restarted, go to the Windows Update/Microsoft Update site.

Download and install the 100+ post-SP3 high priority updates that have been released in the past 4 years.

Once XP is completely up-to-date, you can install an antivirus program and your other desired programs.

There's no need to install a third-party firewall unless you insist on having one because the XP built-in firewall is fine.

Why is this. Like 10 minutes plus and it still says recycling. It should only take a second. Is it bad to let it continue at its own pace or should I restart the PC and try it again?

Let the system do its work. You just want to wait. Usually this don't occur unless it is a huge file. Be patient for a reasonable time. Still if it remains, try logging off/restart.

when i hit start->turn off computer, it takes a long time before the options appear to either 'stand by', 'shut down', or 'restart'. i'm not sure what the computer is thinking about for so long, but is there a way to kick its butt into gear?

A:windows taking long time to shutdown

SHUTDOWN WORKS, BUT IT?S REAL SLOW

1. If it appears that Win XP is not shutting down, give it some time. Some users report a minute or longer for shutdown to visibly start. Generally, this is a consequence of software that is running when shutdown is attempted. It also may have something to do with particular hardware. If you experience this problem, be sure to close all running programs before attempting shutdown and see if this solves your problem. If so, then you can determine, by trial and error, which program(s) are involved.


2. Newsgroup correspondent ?Sarah? provided one specific solution for this. In Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Services, stop the Nvidia Driver Helper service. (You can also get this by launching SERVICES.MSC from a Run box.) Many other newsgroup participants quickly confirmed that this solved this ?extremely slow shutdown? problem for them (it?s the most successful solution for this problem to date). According to correspondent Gan Ming Teik, downloading and installing the new version 23.11 Nvidia driver also solves this problem.


3. Correspondent Ron Spruell found that disabling the Terminal Services service reduced his shutdown time from over 2 minutes (hanging at the ?Windows is shutting down? screen) to about 10 seconds. To disable Terminal Services, follow the steps in the prior paragraph for launching SERVICES.MSC. Please note that Terminal Services is required in Windows XP for running Remote Assistance, Fast User Switching, and (in XP Pro) Remote Desktop.


4. Correspondent Graeme J.W. Smith reported a more obscure cause of slow shutdown: In Win XP Professional, the Group Policy Editor has a security option to clear the pagefile at system shutdown. The same setting also forces the hibernation file to be wiped at shutdown. These processes take long enough that users may think that shutdown has hung. To change the setting, click Start | Run, type GPEDIT.MSC, click OK. Drill down to Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Local Policies | Security Options. In the right pane, find ?Shutdown: Clear virtual memory pagefile.? NOTE: Since someone actually has to have set this policy, the problem will be pretty rare, but is worth mentioning. However, Forum participant ?roadrunner? reported that the personal security app Privacy Eraser automatically enables ?Clear virtual memory pagefile,? and, therefore, may be the cause of a slow shutdown.


5. The Gear Software Security Service (GEARSEC.EXE), which enables iTunes for Windows to read and burn CDs, has been reported by many users to cause Windows XP to hang at the ?Windows is shutting down? screen for as long as 20-30 seconds. WORK-AROUND: Stop the service prior to shutdown. One way to to this (suggested by ?Thornburgh?) is to create a batch file with the one line net stop gearsecurity. You can either launch this batch file manually, or (in Win XP Professional) use GPEDIT.MSC) to specify this batch file as the shutdown script (under Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Scripts | Shutdown). Gear Software?s forum has a thread on this issue here. (Tip from correspondent ?Andy?)


6. MS-MVP Gary Thorn discovered that the Event Log can slow down Win XP shutdown. Disabling event logging removed the slowdown. If this works for you, then the real troubleshooting begins: finding out, by trial and error, what item that is being logged is causing the actual slowdown. (In Gary?s case, the Telephony service was causing the problem.) To disable the Event Log, launch the Services console as detailed in No. 2 above, and disable Event Log (right-click on Event Log, click Properties, under Startup Type select ?Disabled?).

I have a Toshiba Satellite C655 running Windows 7 64 bit. A week and a half ago it started taking over a minute to shut down. It started around the time I installed optional updates for Microsoft Security Essentials, my anti-virus program. I uninstalled it, shut the computer down and it still takes over a minute to shut down. Went into safe mode and reinistalled it there, still took over a minute to shut down. My drivers are all up to date. I think that it may have something to do with an application taking to long to finish uo what it's doing. When looking at processes under task manager, there are 9 separate processes for Google Chrome. I'm attaching a screen shot of task manager.

A:Windows 7 is very slow and hangs for a long time

Well, first you could try disabling startup programs that are unhelpful to you to speed things up. Then you could run CCleaner and/or Advanced System Care by IOBit (i believe) but don't use their registry cleaners. Then try defragmenting your hard drive. And if nothing else works, you should probably fresh install the OS to an SSD.

A:Windows 10 takes a long time to do any task!

Hi, suggest a process of elimination.
1. Previously have you seen significantly faster response times?
2. Can you run chkdsk from an elevated command prompt (Windows key + x, click Command Prompt (admin) & report result
3. What are the SMART params of your disk?
4. Try a clean boot, and compare the times.
How to perform a Clean boot in Windows 10 - TechNet Articles - United States (English) - TechNet Wiki

(Note you need to reverse the settings to get back to normal boot)
5. If no change, try Safe Mode and compare response times.
6. Please post screenshots of your task manager - organised by highest CPU, highest RAM usage.
7. Cortana - puzzling- at least it's not completely broken.

Given that we may have some better idea- thanks.

SSD: My - new- PC is i3 dual core, but 256Gb SSD + HDD- start menu is instantaneous, explorer maybe 0.3s. About 12s to lock screen. I have a lot of programs installed.

Comparison with my 6 year old laptop from which I moved using disk images and Laplink - about 3 hours processing to reproduce my working environment, settings, and installed programs, so much is identical- say 90s to 2 mins to lock screen.

HDD usage: I don't know what partitions you have.. hope you have some.. to separate data from the OS. Basically Windows needs enough free space for paging file (and of course for updates- especially with Win 10, for Windows.old too. You need to beware of programs that take up loads of space on your OS partition or disk in library folders, and of course your own personal data.

I never put my personal data in the 'normal' Documents, Videos, Photos etc library folders- it's all on a separate partition, so separate from the OS.

When you move to your SSD, you need to consider how to lay out your personal data and the folders used by your programs, so your SSD doesn't fill up. Think what you need to run fast- and often- and what not. Slower and infrequently accessed stuff you want to back up goes on your HDD.

If your current OS, programs and data are all combined at present, you need to plan how to transition to an SSD rather carefully.

Hmm, sounds like you might have many programs loading at once when your computer starts. Try going to:

Start > Run > Type "msconfig" > Click on the "Startup" tab

In that section, see if you can disable as many unused programs as possible, it should help your computer load faster.

Could it be the internals? Maybe something isn't plugged in or connected well, maybe the power supply isn't supplying the PC enough power? Maybe you should upgrade to Windows Vista or 7 since you probably meet the requirements for it? Or maybe your PC is overheated and not getting good airflow?

Either your version of Windows has something corrupt or since your PC was home made, something is going wrong internally...

Believe me, I've tried getting the updates. I tried relentlessly at one point, but it's as if my system just refuses to update to version 1511. I had come to accept this issue by now, but I just realised today that the OS is already on version 1607, and maybe even more than that.

Why won't my computer update? The 1511 update always fails and I have no idea why. I think my inability to update to 1511 is also the cause of so many other updates failing. I'll try installing version 1607 now, but I doubt it'll work.

Hi, try manually updating. There's a guide to getting the iso in the Tutorials section.. Microsoft media creation tool. I prefer to have a physical bootable medium as it can be used for certain repairs.

Please be cautious: create a full disk image using e,g, Macrium Reflect (free) before updating. Some people experience significant difficulties.

What's going on with the icon on my taskbar? It takes 22 seconds to load Explorer. Every other link to a folder in Explorer is practically instantaneous, including the links in Start Menu.

A:Windows Explorer takes a long time to load?

You can try unpinning the Windows Explorer icon from the taskbar, then type Windows Explorer in the search function on the Start Menu. It should display Windows Explorer on the top of the search results, right click that and pin to taskbar.

Have you looked into the issue that maybe this is because of malware that is slowing down Windows Explorer when launched from the taskbar icon?

hi guys,

yesterday I was going to do some updates win7 found, it was stuck for a long time on 0kb 0% - it worked eventually, I deleted all updates temp files, but that didn't make things any quicker..

anyone experienced that yesterday at all?

thanks
Gab

A:Windows updates 0kb 0% for long time yesterday, then worked

Deleting all the 'updates temp files' will extend the time taken for WU, since it has then to destroy and rebuild the database it has for updates.

So long as it works in the end, there is no problem. Just leave it to do its thing!

Hi all,

My windows 7 crashes, usually, when I am not working at the computer but I have it runing. Usually takes more than 1 hour to crash and produce the minidump file.

I have tried to leave it runing during the night with Linux (to exclude hardware faults) and in the morning it was still runing fine.

As I get different codes, I will post here what I got from the SF Diagnostic Tool.

This night I left the computer runing all night with windows 7 and it "Shutdown" without any dump file created.

The laptop in question is a Toshiba A300D-14D.

I hope you can help me.

Best regards,
Pedro

The primary problem is that when I boot up, it goes thru POST fine and then i get a black screen. i wait for about 5-6 minutes and then it loads into windows. Sometimes when boot up, it goes straight to windoes but 9 times outta 10 it doesnt. I stripped everything down to the vid card, floppy, HD and network card. Even reinstalled windows. I cant seem to fix this. Anyone have any idea what can possibly be wrong? Thanks in adavnce!

A:Occasional BSOD & long time to start windows

Hello jshofstra12 and welcome to the BC forums. After reviewing your log I see no signs of viruses or malware at this time. Your log is clean.

BSOD's usually mean a driver or hardware issue. I suggest you post in the XP forum and give as much detail as possible regarding what is happening. Was there any changes, installations (hardware/software) or updates performed recently prior to this condition? Let them sort it out.

Cheers.

Hello,

I've had this problem for several months now. Basically, upon starting up my Toshiba laptop, it spends about 2-3 minutes on the Windows XP 'Loading' screen. After this, the screen then turns black, which lasts about 5 - 10 seconds, then loads the login screen. Upon logging in, my computer works at a normal speed. I have no idea why booting up takes such a long time, and I'd appreciate any help.

If you need me to post any info, or perform and tasks, just tell me and I'll do them.

Thanks in advance ,
Dave

I've been having this issue for a little over a month. When I start Windows XP, after it applies personal settings, it gets stuck at just a blank screen with my wallpaper for about 3 minutes or so before it finally starts to load all of the desktop icons. I have tried pulling up task manager while it is sitting there just showing the wallpaper, to see if explorer is running but the task manager doesn't come up until right before the desktop loads. Sounds like explorer.exe is somehow not loading as it should.

I've checked the startup programs in the registry and everything there is normal. Also I have not installed any new software or hardware lately. Any other ideas?

Hi All, I hope someone can help.

Press F2 to run set up
Press F8 for BBS POPUP
Press F12 to reboot from network 
And various other F options
I pressed F2 to run set up but it took me to a page with Various options but whichever I press
non will reboot the machine.
Can anyone help
 
Thanks 
 

A:Desktop not used for a long time won't boot up windows vista.

Hi collywobbles, to the Bleeping Computer Community.
Since your desktop was not used for a long time but on early splash gives you a setup screen which means there is no problem with the board and power itself, try first going to your BIOS setup (press F1, Del, F2) and then see if your hard drive is detected then load default setup the function key is usually found on the low/right windows of the BIOS menu. Double check the date and time is current and or change manually then save and exit.
 
If nothing happens, the CMOS battery might be dead or weak. Removing this battery for a couple of minutes or replacing it would reload the default hardware settings. Make sure to manually change the BIOS time/date again next time or see previous suggestion above. By doing this, you would need to open the side casing while computer is powered off and unplugged. It would also be worth checking and or reseating the hard drives cables are well fitted.
 

A CMOS Battery
 
If you need to be straight forward on getting the data without messing with the desktop anymore, using a USB enclosure and then connecting it to your laptop would be also another option, see more information on enclosures.

2016-04-04    17:39:00:468     380    bf0    DtaStor    WARNING: Attempted to add URL http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msdownload/update/software/updt/2016/03/windows6.1-kb2952664-v17-x64_dd97e8ab6959ee3d8e9c7e4b59a4a1804516d1a3.msu for file 3Zfoq2lZ7j2OnH5LWaShgEUW0aM= when file has not been previously added to the datastore
 
It hasn't done anything since that last entry.
 
Is this regular output from Windows Update file, or should I cancel the check for updates and start a new one?

A:Windows Update taking a long time, should I stop it?

 I just had to restore a Windows 7 desktop from a year old backup last week.  When I ran Windows Update, it ran for 2 hours 20 minutes before finding 114 updates.  Since your install is probably more than a year behind in updates, be prepared for a very long time for Windows Update to run.
 
 Good luck.

Whenever I delete a folder I notice it takes Windows an awful long time for the deletion dialog box to finally disappear. In Windows 2000 when you delete something it does so right away.

I'm not sure why this is happening, but if I attempt to open a drive in Windows Explorer, it takes a really long time (sometimes several minutes). It takes that long for the progress bar on the address bar to fill up. Does anyone know why this would be?

A:Accessing drives in Windows Explorer takes a long time

I have only noticed this the first time or two that I open drives that where used by Vista and the Vista OS partition itself. Places with large numbers of files not created in 7 to start with. Explorer apparently needs to index these files so that it knows what's there to begin with. Hasn't happened here for a while. Yes if the partition (drive) is large it can take a few minutes. I would think mapping a network drive would have a similar process as windows discovers what all is available there.

A:Ticking Noise - Windows Freezes - Lasts LONG TIME- HELP!

It depends on the type and frequency of ticking.
1) Temperature - it's getting too hot inside.
2) The hard drive isn't going to be surviving for very much longer.
3) Loose power connection to the hard drive.

I'm inclined to lean to the loose power connector. Now, it may be seated tight, but doesn't mean the contacts are made properly. See, I have - in this very machine - numerous hard drives (5). One of them (3rd one, E: drive) has such a situation. And it ticks, then I wiggle for a minute, and everything comes back to normal. On the rare occasion, I have to go to the Device Manager and refresh (look for new hardware) and it goes back in with no problems.

But, in your case, since you have only one hard drive, the system locks down because it can't get to the OS files when such a loosening occurs. I would look to using a different power connector from the PSU first, and if none are available, look at another of the CD-style Molex connectors, and put a SATA adapter on it. Try that first, then we can go from there.

We're at 5 1/2 hours and still not finished. 924,000+ items scanned. I had had the trial version of Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit on for the first 1 1/2 hours of the Defender scan and I turned it off because I thought that might be slowing things.

This is on a Dell Inspiron Mini netbook. Not a huge hard drive here. The RAM has been upgraded from 1Gb to 2Gb, so I don't think that is the problem.

Is this normal? My ESET smart security takes a lot less time and I'm sure it scans a lot more items.

Hi,

I am experiencing strange problem with my Windows XP machine. After Windows XP starts up - my machine hangs for 5 minutes and wait for the Security Center's Firewall alert pop-up. During this time, I can access my computer and other files, but most of the programs don't launch. Also the internet doesn't work till this time. Only after the Windows Security Center's pop-up appears saying "Your firewall is turned off" does the machine starts properly.
This alert vanishes after a second or so and then the internet connection icon appears in the task bar.
I had avast anti-virus installed on my machine and I read on a couple of forums that this might be causing the particular problem - so I've uninstalled avast and installed AVG antivirus.
Still the problem is persisting.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in anticipation.

A:[SOLVED] Windows XP takes long time to load programs

so you get a message that the firewall is turned off? How long has that been happening, does it turn itself on at all. My suggestion would be to post on our malware forum; there is a sticky at the top of that forum to explain what they need from you to start with. However I do see that you were able to uninstall avast and install avg. Do you have malwarebytes installed at all. Perhaps firstly you could try a scan with avg and see if it shows anything, and download malwarebytes and scan with that. I suggest these things because you get the message about your firewall being turned off which doesn't seem right.

A:Why is Windows 7 taking long time to load files on startup

One option in the advanced boot options (F8 at start up) should be "Last Good Configuration", if it is then take that option and it should be the first basic fix to get it to start up. If it starts but does not fully load or still takes too long then try again and take the Safe Mode option and run the three programs under Safe Mode as recommended in reply #4. Save the logs from the results (Copy Paste into Word or other program for now) and reboot into normal mode. Then copy paste the results from those logs into a reply here so they can be reviewed to see if there is more you will need to do.You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I log in to my user and the computer is extremely sluggish. Many different programs won't open and computer just locks up.

Something in your right click menu is causing Windows 8 troubles. Start by focusing on lesser known software which may be resident in the right click menu and if you can't figure it out, begin to focus on everything that may be in there. Something there is the cause and if you're diligent enough, you should be able to isolate which one it is. Here is your tool:
