Windows 7 x64 Boot Delay - RPCSS scvhost

Q: Windows 7 x64 Boot Delay - RPCSS scvhost

Hello,
Immediately following the Starting Windows splash screen and before the welcome/logon screen I experience a 40ish second delay; a black screen with a cursor. I have been attempting to fix this for quite some time and this is my last resort. There is no difference in safe mode, clean boot, etc. Tried every reasonable suggestion I could find to no avail. A boot trace has revealed that "RPCSS svchost" is taking the majority of the time (see screenshot). I have no idea where to go from here. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Title I wanted to use: Windows XP SP3: Slow Startup / Boot: Black Screen Delay & Delay after logging in

For some reason I can't preview my post when I use this title: I have tried removing all the punctuation, including the &, which doesn't work and have tried other titles with the same character length, which does work.

Problem Begins Here:

When I turn on or restart my computer, the boot up time from the time I press the power button to the time the final icon on my desktop loads is slow. I am not too concerned about the time after my desktop is shown since I have several items to run at startup.

The two areas of concern are:

1) After the XP logo is shown, my screen goes black. This lasts for about 17 to 19 seconds. I don't know when this started as I rarely restart my computer. The problem is worse if I startup in Safe Mode. It's about 1 minute and 10 seconds before I see anything on the screen, and another 40 seconds before something else is shown on screen. Note: In order to not to have to waste time pressing F8 and choosing Safe Mode, I enter safe mode by specifying so in msconfig. The options I chose were /SAFEBOOT and Minimal.

2) After I login, there is a delay of about 30 to 45 seconds before the desktop is shown. Windows stays at the login confirmation screen during that time. This I feel has happened recently.

Hi,

I recently run SysInternals Autoruns.exe and under the Logons tab, I unchecked a lot of crap (except the top three entries, which are system required), I always thought these processes would only load when hitting the Welcome screen, but I've got a strange problem.

My Windows boot is now 1-2minutes longer, it sits at the Windows loading screen with the rotating bar and the disk seems to do a seek and stop, and repeats this. I've ran chkdsk and no issues. Maybe the problem is not related to what I've done in autoruns.exe, but I need to resolve this issue.

All I can think of is running bootvis.exe (which, If I remember correctly, will indiciate what area of your computer the delay may be in), but is there some other means to identify exactly what file/driver is causing the long delay at the Windows boot?

Thanks for any help, its appreciated

You might try re-checking all the things you unchecked and then remove them one at a time. Time consuming I know, but should point to the problem area.

*Title is incorrect, meant to put the issue with boot delay in the title as well*
 
Recently my boot time has been delayed, after 'Starting windows' splash screen, it will go black with mouse cursor,(sometimes I can move it, sometimes I cannot) and it sits there for about 40-45 secs,  then goes to the login screen, or goes to desktop if I have auto login enabled. (SSD and I would normally boot into deskop in about 7-10 secs.) For a couple weeks I have been trying to determine the cause of this with no luck., I have ran scans and clean boots. (still happens during clean boot) ran tools,(found no infections) etc, logging programs.  Already setup a couple custom even timers and the delay looks to be at: 
 
MainPathBootTime 48909.
 
During research of the delay I found another forum with troubleshooting steps and  using Windows perfmoremance tool kit and ran  xbootmgr commands, was told WaitforLSM is slow,  (ran a MS fix for that) drilled down deeper with xbootmgr and it appears to be dcomlaunch svchost. Anyways, still was unable to find the actual cause, Had some errors in event viewer, those are gone and now have different ones.  I don't want to reinstall.      Will do whatever ya need me to do.  Don't mind starting from scratch as long as it finds the root of my problem
Appreciate any help.

Hello,

So, i got a new pc, everything works fine except one thing:

There is a 5-6 seconds delay before the windows 7 logo shows up, something which is not present to any pc i made.
I have a smimilar pc on amd (like mine) where the delay is 0, it just boots>post>that underline for HDD checking>and windows logo.
for me it is: post>hdd checking>6 second delay>windows boot logo

the boot speed on 2 other pc's (one running a q6600 and one running a amd phenom x6) is about 16-17 and 15 for amd, also those 2 systems are outdated and on sata 1, a great speed for that hardware.
but, i have a similar pc with 8320 (like mine) booting in 12-13 seconds.
and my actual speed is of 22 seconds which is dissapointing.

been searching everywhere about this and tried almost everything from:
safemode boot, antivirus, display card instalation, msconfig stuff, services stuff, reinstalling 3 times (the delay is present even at first boot), windows repair, windows update, checkdisk, checking for viruses, booting on ssd alone, booting with Fast boot ON/OFF, no usb inputs.

could anyone please help me?
Thanks in advantage

You could go to msconfig and uncheck "Advanced System Care Ultimate" in startup, then start the program manually from a shortcut to its exe file as and when required.Alternatively look for a freebie that can delay its startup:http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/3-smal...If you feel daring there are manual methods for introducing delays, see here:http://www.computing.net/answers/wi...http://superuser.com/questions/2397...EDIT:My guess is if you started that System Care after about 2 or 3 minutes it would be less intrusive because the most important bootup items would be running by then.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

Hi all! I'm brand new here.

This is a new build from about 11/15. System was rock solid until about a month ago when I had a weird string of BSOD at login. I went through a bunch of hoops and finally got the system back to normalish, although I never really figured out what the problem was..

However, since then I intermittently have a delay just before the login screen shows. Most of the time it's fine, when it's not, it manifests as a black screen with just my mouse pointer hanging out in the void. This delay can be anywhere from ~30 seconds to ~5 minutes.

Any help is appreciated. Let me know what additional info you might need from me.

Stuff I have done:

Updated all drivers for my hardware that aren't marked as beta (there's a couple of those for my mobo)
Ran chkdsk (no errors)
Ran sfc /scannow (no errors)
Changed my DNS server settings and disable IPv6 (I forget what led me to believe that could be the culprit)
Took the overclock off my RAM

I'm sure I'm forgetting a few things.. anyway.. thanks in advance for any help.

Hi, my first post as I am fairly competent with computers, but I'm frustrated. I have a Pavillion DV6, Intel Core i5-2430M CPU @ 2.40GHz, 6gb ram, with AMD Radeon HD 7400M Series and Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000. Under Windows 7, I replaced the standard hard drive with a Crucial_CT240M500SSD1 - 223.57 GB. On Windows 7 it was fantastic and boot time was seconds. When it became available for me, I took the option to update to Windows 10. Now when I start my laptop, the blue windows screen loads, the loading dots circle a couple of times, then I get a black screen for approx 90 seconds, then eventually the log in page loads and everything is as it should be. I have not been able to find this exact problem anywhere, the nearest seems to be having a black screen with a flashing cursor, but I dont get that, just a black backlit screen. I have tried a few "fixes" uninstalling CCC and drivers etc then installing and enabling/disabling in different configurations, but the problem persists. When the graphics drivers are disabled, the laptop boots in a few seconds to log in, but when loaded the display is like safe mode and unacceptable. Any help would be appreciated as my laptop is normally on for long periods whilst working, or I shut it down and only need to be on for a few minutes at a time and the delay in boot is annoying.

Recently, my computer has started to delay during boot up. The delay starts after the 'Starting windows' screen, it is a black screen with a mouse cursor, some times I can move the mouse, other times I cannot. The delay lasts for about 60 seconds. Then takes me to the log in screen (or logs me in if I have it set to automatic log on) . I am tearing my hair out trying to determine what is the cause.
I have used the instructions Trace Windows 7 boot/shutdown/hibernate/standby/resume issues - Windows 7 - MSFN Forum
to determine the issue is occurring during the SMSSinit phase of the mainboot. I have uninstalled and reinstalled drivers. I have setup custom event viewers to look at the boot and also see the delay with warnings. MbAr found no issues, Combofix found nothing significant. Avast boot time scan found nothing significant. sfc found no issues (I did have the kb3022345 issue but have uninstalled that update).
Startup repair also found no issues.

My ntbtlog shows these items not loading:

Delay Chkdsk start up time at OS Boot | Windows 8 & 8.1
(Or Disable Altogether)


Previous to Windows 8 if Chkdsk needed to run without prompt the user had the ability to cancel if so desired.
Since Windows 8, the user input has been removed.

At the least, you can change the delay setting as follows:
Modify DWORD "AutoChkTimeout"

IMAGE ONE:
1. Open Regedit:
One way to open regedit is to hit the Winkey+S and type regedit, hit enter when you see it appear.

2. Navigate to the following registry key:


Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager


3. Click on the folder "Session Manager"

4. In the right hand pane you will see registry values. Right click on the value "AutoChkTimeout" and select "Modify" (See image one)
If the value is missing, create it (See image two)

5. Change the "Value data:" to the desired delay time of your choice.
e.x. Changing the value to 10, will delay the Chkdsk start time by 10 seconds.
Click OK, close the registry.
Finished.
Create DWORD "AutoChkTimeout"

IMAGE TWO:

If the registry value "AutoChkTimeout" is not present:
Right click on an empty space in the right hand pain (in folder "Session Manager")

Select "New"
Select "DWORD (32-Bit) Value
Name it "AutoChkTimeout" (No Quotation Marks "")
Follow step 4. above.

Hello,

I recently installed a 44VSL Audiobox from PreSonus. I'm running Windows 8, with an ASRock 970 Extreme3 motherboard that has Conexant HD audio. When I have both audio devices plugged in, the computer won't boot up. The machine powers on, but it gets stuck with a dark screen. If I unplug the AudioBox, the computer will then boot up. Can anyone help me be able to use them both without having to do this? Thanks!

I have a recording studio (Sonar X3 and a Roland Studio-Capture).

Can you tell where its stopping? e.g. is it loading the BIOS, after the BIOS loads and then Windows starts?

It may have something to do with the power on the USB port?? If you are plugged into a front USB port, try a rear port. Or vice versa. This has a separate power supply, but can it also be bus powered from the USB? If so, that could be the problem.

I haven't seen any reports of this type of problem on recording forums.

I bought my laptop in January 2015, and got used to Windows 8.1. I have liked Win10 ever since I upgraded late last year. I had some minimal trouble in the "migration", which was related to the substituted touchpad driver, but I digress. I believe my problem corresponds in some aspect with svchost.exe (RPCSS). I used process explorer (by SysInternals) to observe the correlation between my computer's freezing up at regular intervals of 1-2 minutes, and each freezing event lasting for increasingly longer periods of over 73 seconds (directly correlating to the timing of each CPU peak on the svchost.exe performance graph. The memory usage of this component is observed to grow to increasingly higher levels as well (over 166 Mb). During the freezing periods, the CPU usage of this component goes to 23-26% each time. Immediately after a computer restart, the duration of the freezing is hardly noticeable, but eventually builds to intolerable levels. ("Gradually" rather than "eventually" may be the more appropriate adverb, because the duration may not be associated with reported data in monitored system events.)

In the process of tracking the possible causes of this problem, I have run malwarebytes, which reports no problems. I cannot relate the first instance of this problem to any particular software installation or Windows update. I have also started in Windows Safe Mode, which provides no freezes. The subsequent reboot in normal mode reveals the persi... Read more

Hi everyone,
I have had a search around for the issue I am having but I find it hard to explain.

I currently run windows of a crucial m400 SSD and it used to boot in less than a minute. More recently (and apparently overnight) boot time became several minutes.

I turned on verbose boot and it loads the files very quickly (just scans quickly infront of me) and then when it comes to the screen that reads the following (and see attached):

"Microsoft (R) Windows (R) Version 6.1 (Build 7601: Service Pack 1)

8 System Processors [8184 MB Memory] Multiprocessor Kernel"

It sits there for several minutes before then loading the desktop.

I am unsure how to diagnose this issue further and would greatly appreciate some guidance onto how to drill down into this further.

Thanks,
Chalima

I've been dealing with a recurring infection that seems to originate from the file C:/Windows/svchost.exe. Nothing I come up with can delete the file, and if I don't close the process immediately after it starts running (it uses 1GB of memory!), I pick up the System Fix infection. Malwarebytes acknowledges there's an infection, but it can't delete it properly. I'm at a loss!

Edit: I've researched similar infections and no suggestions for removing those have worked for me, except temporarily.

every time i start my pc it keeps saying windows cant find scvhost exe. whats this meen and how do i stop it? can any one help me please

A:windows cant find scvhost exe please help

If it is spelled as you indicated, scvhost.exe, that is not good.

Please download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Double click on the program to run it.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Get HijackThis Analyzer and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in y if you agree. The result.txt file will open up in Notepad. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it in the forum. We do not need the original hijackthis.log (unless we ask for it). Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

Recently I was getting physical memory issues on Windows 7 32Bit since it only allows 3.5gb of ram but I have 6gbs. Where as scvhost.exe was hogging about 1,500,000KB's which is about 1.5GB's of memory most of the time which ate up a lot of physical memory.

I decided to reformat my computer to Windows 7 64bit which allowed me to fully use my 6gbs of ram. But scvhost.exe still hogs up around the same amount. I'm not sure if its normal or not, but I wanted to check because I've never really had this problem & I did notice my computer being a little slower than normal.

A:Windows 7, scvhost.exe hogging up ram.

Click the checkbox next to the problematic svchost.exe then go to CPU and expand the "Services" pane. There is something about about that svchost.exe process. I don't have a single one that shows up without "svchost.exe (Something here)"

I removed a variant of the 'FBI Virus' with Hitman Pro Kickstarter. This variant was the Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE). I've scanned the system with AVG and it keeps finding this infection and can't remove it. I have run rogue killer on the laptop and it didn't seem to help. I scanned it with Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit (MBAR) it didn't get rid of the infection either. I'm running a scan with DDS now. It seems to be taking longer than 3 minutes. Meanwhile AVG resident shield is going bonkers because of this virus.

So I am having this issue where my machine hangs at bootup. The machine is a Dell Latitude E5520 with a Samsung 830SSD. I am absolutely certain this has something to do with hardware.

Here is the rundown of the problem. First when the machine is powered on, the Dell splashscreen appears. After the "loading bar" has completed the screen goes black. No devices are plugged into the machine and the same symptoms occur even when I want to go into the BIOS.

I've noticed on the Device manager in windows there is an unknown device in the USB controller. I determined it was the built-in webcam. However, I am able to disable the webcam in the BIOS and the black screen still appears.

Any thoughts?

Thank you.

A:10 Second delay before boot

BK mate what just do you mean by the loading bar am not sure what that is.

If you have any suspicions that it may be the SSD try using the Samsung Magician software to optimize the drive etc etc Samsung Magician Software: OS Optimization Feature Overview | Samsung SSD

You might even get a bit more speed if you use some of the tips in this tutorial.
Optimize Windows 7 < point 9 is a good spot to hit first. Just be aware of some of the tips involve changes to the registry and if I were you I would back it up first.
Registry - Backup and Restore

To view components I more detail see this ditty of mine.

Using HW Info general components

DownloadHW Info and pick the right bit version - http://www.hwinfo.com/download.php- (copy andpaste this site into the search bar) If you do not need the running informationin the smaller right hand panel close it. In the left hand window click on the+ for the individual device groupings and they will open out to the variouscomponents.

Goon opening out further until you get to the device itself. click on it and itwill highlight. In the right hand window there will be a very detaileddescription of that device as in brand, speeds model number etc etc These arevery detailed and are just what is needed for searching for drivers etc.

Seemy pic for an example - in this I have opened out one my components and then highlighted one of the one you need andyou can see the detail.
You may be able to ID that unknown device with it.

vga.sys, video driver could have become corrupted

NDProxy.SYS is a network device driver ... Go into Device Manager and see if you have two active network device drivers running. If you do, see which one is the 'default' driver, then disable the other one.

Run system file checker:

Type "cmd" into the Search box above the Start Button>and when cmd comes up
at the top of the Start menu>right click cmd and click "run as Admin" and
when the cmd prompt comes up at the cmd prompt type "sfc /scannow" no quotes
and let it run. This may fix things... it replaces corrupted files with intact ones.

If I then pull out power plug from wall & start again all is well

About a month ago, after restarting my laptop, I heard random ads playing without any windows being opened. Doing research, combined with lack of being home, I've tried different ways to fix it including anti-malware softwares, anti-virus checks, etc. However, the ads persist for about 15 minutes without being able to close them out. AVG popped up once and told me that a file similar to rpcss.dll in Windows/System32 was infected, but a scan showed it was actually in a windows/winsxs/x86 folder instead. It's still happening and I don't know how to fix it. I would appreciate help as soon as you guys can, please. Thanks in advance.

You're right, CPU is checking each drive in turn. Yes, you should definitely be able to remove drive from boot sequence (becomes non-bootable of course). Look at documentation that came with ZIP. Last alternative is to check and change drive boot sequence to A:, C:, ...whatever (check sequence now) should start to boot on reaching C:, but will continue to check for other drives while boot going on. I have removed both CD/DVD and CD-RW drives from my boot sequence.

Win/7 32 bit. Quite often boot time is too long. This happens whether I disable all items in the start up tab or not. Looking into the event view log, windows system log, whenever the delay occurs (3 minutes) it is between ?kernel-processor-power? and ?service control manager? (plug and play entered running state).
Is the delay from the kernel processor power or from the plug and play devices? In the past I have disconnect everything except the mouse and keyboard, but the condition was the same.

Any solution or more info to troubleshoot is appreciated.

A:Long delay to boot

Answer Match 47.88%

Hi all. I am having a pretty long delay when booting up my Dell Inspiron 9400. Had the problem once before and checkdisk/f took care of it. Not this time.

I ran BootVis and the last program to load before the delay is AAWSERVICE.EXE. According to my search this file belongs to Ad Aware from LavaSoft. I no longer run this program and it was removed with the uninstall program.

I looked in the Windows Services area and the file is not listed. I looked into Add/Remove programs and it is not there. There is a directory for it but it is empty (2007 version)

I believe the delay is cause because the computer is expecting this file and it doesn't exist. It finally gives up and continues on with the boot process. How do I make the process of looking for this file stop so it no longer looks for it, especially since I no longer use the program.

Here is the BootVis Graph.



Thanks.

Recently my computer has been taking extra long time to boot. It hangs for ahes on the green loading bar. I decided to enter "safe mode with networking" so that I could determined which driver was causing the delay.

I noticed that it hung on "crcdisk.sys" for ages. I have tried to research this and found many people complaining about the same topic. However I cannot find a definitive solution.

Interestingly, the next driver in the bootlog, ntbtlog.txt, is Tunnel.sys - which sounds very networky. I believe this is where the problem is.

Any help would be much appreciated.

crcdisk.sys may be the driver on the screen that appears to be hanging; however it most likely has loaded and the driver following it may be the actual problem.

Go into msconfig and enable boot logging -

I own an Inspiron 24-7459 all in one pc with a 1TB HDD + 32GB SSD.
The entire PC works perfectly which is really good news but I noticed something throughout the days since I've been using this PC.
There is a 12 second delay before the Dell boot logo shows up and that small spinning circle thing at the bottom of it, then the rest of the PC boots fine, I even ran the diagnostics in the boot menu and said there are no errors.
Is there meant to be a 12 second delay like this or is there a problem with it? The 12 second delay has happened ever since the day I purchased this PC.

From startup there are some clicks, but nothing hits the screen until it "goes to sleep".
Then after 30 secs the optical drives are initiated, and after 5 more secs img appears and POST starts.

Read some postings here and there stating this to be an nividia chipset incompatibility, for which Asus is said to have and e mail a special bios that solves the problem.
AFAIK the P5Q3... has an Intel so that doesn't seem the case here.

I am having a strange problem with an old Toshiba Satellite 1000 laptop running XP Professional SP3. There is a boot delay that is similar to the delay that occurs in Windows 7 when some services are set to "Delayed Start," but Windows XP doesn't have that option. This computer actually has two delays. First, explorer.exe takes an extremely long time to start when Windows boots. Next, some ostartup items will only start after a delay.

Next, this computer thinks that most security certificates contain errors, but the same websites work on other computers without giving any errors. I have seen this happen when the date is set incorrectly, but the date and time are correct.

Finally, Malwarebytes will not update, possibly because of the security certificate issue. I get the following error code:
PROGRAM_ERROR_UPDATING (0, 0, Host not found)

What is wrong? Could it be AOL or some old malware interfering? This computer only had SP1 on it until last week, but it was last connected to the Internet in 2008.

Anyone heard of this problem? My PC maker replaced the power supply under the warranty. Now boot up hangs for 2+ minutes at the Intel M/B screen, then a black screen for another minute then Windows loads normally. It also operates without any problems once loaded.
If I unplug my Bluetooth dongle and Maxtor USB external HD boot up is almost as fast as before.
Is it possible that something fried when the P/S failed? The Bluetooth devices (keyboard/mouse) and the external HD operate normally once the machine is "awake".

PC boots up okay, apparently, but there are now anomalies that didn't exist 48 hours ago.

Norton will not activate Realtime Protection. If I do it manually, it shuts off again after a second or two.

Spybot will not run, although the task tray icon is visible.

AdAware, which is not auto-loaded, will not run.

My dial-up connection icon, in the task tray, will not show up, although I will have a good connection.

After 20-25 minutes, suddenly they are all working! Connection icon shows up, Norton becomes active and, if I've already tried to run them, Adaware and SypBot will run.

I've run Norton, Adaware, Spybot, Malwarebyte and Hijackthis but have not found anything amiss, aside from a couple of cookies that I recognized and deleted.

I've handled a lot of problems in the past but this one stumps me. I cannot find anything amiss. This delay, especially since it seems oriented on my AV stuff and net connection, makes me VERY nervous. Help/hints/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

A:[SOLVED] Suspicious long delay after boot up

Additional information, since original posting 5 days ago.

Norton and Spybot, which both load on boot, do become active 15 minutes after booting up. Ad-Aware, HJT and Malwarebytes, which do NOT load on boot-up, will also run after that 15 minute wait. (My original estimate of 20-25 minutes was incorrect.)

I found one AppInit_DLLs file which I could find no information for. That file is bnntut.dll and was found in the registry at:

HKLM \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ Current Version \ Windows

Later I looked again but could not locate that file in the same location, even though "Autoruns", a utility from sysinternals.com, still showed that file in that locaton. I unchecked that file (disabled autorun) through 'Autoruns', but it does not seem to have had any effect on the current problem.

5 days now folks. Yes, a holiday was thrown in there which is why I haven't hollered for a bump sooner, but I'm getting very urgent about solving this problem. I have not posted elsewhere about this, yet, but REALLY need this PC to be operating properly and am reluctant to dive into this problem much more on my own.

I have experienced this "issue" from last year and I don't know if this is normal or not but I would like an affirmation of it. Basically, whenever I boot-up my PC everything will load fine except for firewall (AVG internet security 2013, not Windows) and windows gadgets. It will take extra time (around a minute or two) for them to turn on/active.

To be precise, it goes like this:
1. Starts PC
2. Boots up OS
3. Loads desktop and all the applications (including AVG) successfully
---------------- It takes around 20~30 seconds up to this point -----------
4. Finally, the firewall turns on and the gadgets appears on the desktop
---------------- This takes around extra 1~2 min -----------

So, as you can see, for some odd reasons there is a delay in turning on the firewall as well as gadgets appearing on the desktop. I also suspect that there are some applications which are delayed as well.
A year ago, this hasn't been too much of a hassle as waiting for a minute or two was not a big problem for me however, now I feel like its effecting me quite a bit.

Is there any solution for this issue? I don't think its a virus or anything similar as I do regular checks and cleaning using various tools and couldn't find any signs of virus/malware.

A:Delay in turning on the firewall/gadgets? (After Boot-Up)

I would not run AVG which is favored by no one here after bloating up years ago and never slimming back down. We recommend almost unanimously Microsoft Security Essentials with the Win7 firewall which is perfected. Keep it updated by setting Windows Updates to Automatic.

Since AVG is bloatware it may have an virus-like removal tool which needs to be run in addition to uninstalling it.

I built my first SSD based PC last week and was blown away by how fast it booted into Windows. After a few days, however, my boot times became noticeably slower, rising from around 18 seconds to 42 seconds according to Windows Diagnostics-Performance logs. On further inspection, I discovered that most of the extra delay is associated with an event called "OtherKernelInitDuration," which rose from under a second to around 23 seconds.

Any suggestions as to what may be causing this? I've tried just about every solution I could find on the net for fixing slow SSD boots (making sure the desktop has wallpaper, enabling EHCI handoff in bios, unplugging my DVD burner, running a Windows repair, turning off unused peripherals in bios, etc.) and am getting frustrated.

BTW, my Crucial SSD has the latest firmware and scored a 7.9 on the Windows experience index.

A:Slow SSD Boot with long OtherKernelInitDuration delay

Have you followed the guide on this website regarding disabling page file, super fetch, prefetch and so forth.

I've ran three different types of SSDs...from Intel to OCZ SATA 2 to my more recent OCZ SATA3. I haven't once experienced any delayed boot times spanning multiple Win7 installs.

It's possible the issue could be related to mobo / controller issues. I would highly recommend contact the HDD manufacturer to ensure there isn't a hardware issue that might require patching in a future firmware update

Hi,

I've been offline for the last few days upgrading my system. I did this because of temp problems with my system, and it was time to get new hardware... Mine was two years old

I bought a GA-P67A-UD3-B3 mobo, an i5-2500 and 2 x 4g CL9 XMP memory modules running at 1600mhz

My temp on the old i7-920 was 15C above room temp. The i5 is about 5C with the Noctua cooler.

But after installing the nvidia video drivers and rebooting, having reinstalled Windows 7 Ult x64 from scratch something strange started happening..

After the post screen is shown, and the AHCI screen is shown the UD3 mobo displays "Loading Operating system..."

Then after 5 seconds is displays 20 dots on the screen one at a time, 1 second apart before it starts loading windows.

I was on the F2 BIOS revision, so I upgraded to the latest BIOS which is F4 but that didn't stop the delay.

Anyone seen this before (on this or other boards), and know why it happens and how to get rid of it?

thanks
Tanya

A:25 second boot up delay after post/AHCI screens

I've not seen that on one of the newer boards/BIOS, so I can't be sure, but I can suggest some tests to try and isolate the problem.

If this issue started immediately after the installation of the graphics driver then you could have a bad driver install (happens) or a faulty video card. If you remove the driver and run the card on the generic Windows driver and the issue goes away then you can focus on the driver. You would want to try a "clean install" of the video driver next. Also check the connection on the video card, reseat the card and check that the contacts are clean and unobstructed.

Alternately, that delay can be caused by issues with drives detection. Some SATA CD/DVD drives can be problematic. Test this by changing the boot order in BIOS to boot the hard drive first. Normally the boot order should not affect the boot time significantly.

If you can't isolate the problem with those two tests, then, I would suspect that one of the motherboard drivers or components are suspect. Check to be sure you have all your drivers installed and up to date. These normally should be the drivers from the downloads section of the motherboard manufacturer's website. You can test to see if a component/driver is causing the issue by disabling them (temporarily) in the BIOS. (This would be the LAN and Sound components, or a secondary SATA controller.)

I recently reformatted my Vista install because boot time started to take a very long time (went from an average of seeing the green bar go by 8 times to around 40). I couldn't figure out why this had happened before I reformatted and I just assumed it had something to do with having personal programs being started at boot time and maybe a hint of fragmentation.

In a previous thread I had this similar problem occur after I had defragmented using 3rd party applications. (for the record, I have used a different defragmenter on every reformat I've done and I've had this problem with PerfectDisk, Diskeeper, and O&O. And as suggested by someone in this thread, Vista never rebuilt its 'tracing files' even after a year of keeping that install.)

Anyway after I had reformatted and installed all of my applications, boot time stayed at around 9 green bars, so I ignored my theory about applications slowing down my boot time. I then tried defragmenting with Vista's defrag.exe using 'defrag c: -w -v' and boot time increased by about 1 or 2 green bars, so no big deal.

I then decided I would try out Windows 7 and reinstall BackTrack and seeing as I already had 3 primary partitions I created an extended partition with a logical NTFS and ext3 partition. As soon as I rebooted after making these changes boot time jumped back up to around 40 bars passing by like my previous install and hasn't gone down since.

Hi all, first I'd like to say I really appreciate the time you take to voluntarily help us people who are not so adept with computers - it's very kind of you!

I tend to try and keep on top of spyware by using adaware regularly, but the last 2 months I admit it, I've been slacking a little. The other day I opened up adaware and after a minute it shut my computer down. It did this a few times until i managed to stop the scan about 30 seconds in and quarantine what it found before it shut down. After I rebooted, adaware no longer shut down my computer, and I was able to quarantine the other 100 or so files (tracking cookies mostly!) it found, then I discovered that I could no longer connect to the internet. After restoring everything I quarantined and browsing for a whiel I read up on that awful SAHAgent.exe and I seem to have removed it.
However, part of my 'fix' was through a file a friend advised I used: Winsockxpfix.exe which I *think* I downloaded from this site: http://www.spychecker.com/program/winsockxpfix.html
So after having removed all of the sahagent components I could find and not being able to connect again afterwards, I used this program to repair what SaHAgent damaged and after about 20 seconds (my friend told me it was renewing my IP address or something) my computer was connected to the internet again.

Recently, i've noticed that everytime windows 10 (x64 pro) starts and gets to the initial lock screen, it takes up to 6 seconds to show the mouse cursor and register keyboard events in order to let me log in. It used to be instantaneous.

Is this related to Build 1511 (10586.104)? All my drivers are up to date, etc.

Specs:
-Core 2 Quad Q9550 (OC to 3.2ghz (vs 2.8ghz))
-8GB RAM (OC to DDR2 900 (vs 800))
- 1x 128gb Kingston SSD
- 1x 120gb Samsung SSD
- 1x 1tb WD Black HDD
- AMD Radeon R7 200 (2gb)

This problem, which I suspected was malware related, was first posted over in the "Security" forums. It was concluded that is was NOT a malware related and it was suggested I try over here, so here I am.

The background for my problem can be found here:

http://www.techsupportforum.com/f100...up-365370.html

The short version is:

A couple weeks ago (I've been trying to solve this problem for a long time now), when I boot XP Home all seems normal but for 15 minutes non of my AV stuff (Norton, SpyBot, etc.) will run.

More recently I've noticed I cannot run the dial-up connection to the 'net either. At times the START button on my task bar will not run either, although this is not a consistent case.

After 15 minutes though, the PC "burps", the screen refreshes and all is well. Anything that I had tried to run prior to the 15 minutes, suddenly it comes up as if just called.

The good folk on the Security forum (Thanks Iain!) had me uninstall Norton (ack!) and put in AVG Free instead. Okay, that has been okay and it does run at initial boot.

Since the problem began, I've also upgraded to SP-2 (which I've deliberately avoided for years, obviously) as a requirement to installing AVG Free.

Please note: I am on a slow dial-up but will undertake almost anything to clear this matter up. Not only is the problem a painful one but this PC is vital to me and my work. Also, I've been pretty good in the past about curing PC problems on my own, b... Read more

A:[SOLVED] Suspicous long delay, with problems, after boot.

A little more information:

Prior to the 15 minute 'pause', certain features would not run, although they would 'come alive' after the 15 minute lag if I had tried to run them during that time.

These include:

Ad-Aware
Spybot
Dial-Up connection
Norton (since uninstalled per 'Security' forum instructions and replaced with AVG, with runs okay.)

I have noted that at times my 'Start' button, on the task bar, will not operate, although this seems to be a "sometimes" symptom.

During the first week or so of this problem, the dial-up connection did work, although, once connected, the Task Tray icon did not display.

I have recently installed Windows 7 over Windows 10 (I didn't really like it) and I have a boot-time problem now. Windows always gets stuck on "Starting Windows" screen and it takes up to 90 seconds to load the login screen. I looked it up in the event viewer and found out that there is a delay of 75 seconds between two events on the list.

(1) Information 24.7.2016 23:45:15 Service Control Manager 7036 None
(2) Information 24.7.2016 23:44:00 Kernel-Processor-Power 26 (4)

The first one (1) says:
The Plug and Play service entered the running state.

And the second (2) one:
Processor 3 in group 0 exposes the following:
2 idle state(s)
5 performance state(s)
0 throttle state(s)

(detailed info at the end)
All the drivers are from the original CD/Website and are up-to-date. I had no such problems when I was running Windows 10 or any other operating system.
The laptop is Lenovo Z50-75 --- AMD A10 7300, 8GB RAM, 5400rpm 500GB+8GB SSHD and Dual-Graphics AMD Radeon R6 and M255.

A:Slow boot time (~90 seconds) - Plug and Play delay

My computer give me >120 second in order for me to start using.

Startup usually may check and confirm many type of setting, etc.

For example, if you desktop is empty, it will take 10 second and you can start using.

All items on the desktop are to be verified as true, otherwise it may try to find the link.

When you insert any USB device into the USB port, the system usually take every 5 second to check if there is any change.
Hence, within 5 second, the USB device will be detected.
Then it have to check if that device did connected to USB port-2 before, it can be used immediately.
If it check as the device is never connected to the USB port-2, it then have to find the USB driver to install and saved, remembered.

Then again, for 90 seconds, it may not matter much, as just turn on the computer before, say, to take a bath first.

History:
Two Dell Dimension 9200 Desktops:
Machine 1 BIOS set to "SATA ON" and thus benefitting from AHCI
Machine 2 BIOS set to "RAID Autodetect / ATA"
I want both machines to use "SATA ON" so on Machine 2 have made appropriate change in BIOS and done a clean install of Windows 7 64 BIT. Having done the reinstall during the boot it gets to the message:
"Press CTRL-I to enter configuration utility"
then hangs for about 30 seconds before I then have to select the only OS on the system from the boot menu that being "Windows 7".(It will default to this if left unselected).
On my Machine 1 which has always been set to "SATA ON" there is no delay at all after the:
"Press CTRL-I to enter configuration utility"
Any help appreciated in solving this mystery on Machine 2.
Thank you

A:Long delay during boot on Dell Dimension 9200 with RAID set to SATA ON

Reset the BIOS on the one that is not working correctly. To reset the BIOS (CMOS memory), power off the PC, open the case and remove the CR2032 CMOS backup battery for AT LEAST 10 minutes (Intel says 15 minutes). Reinstall the battery, observing polarity, and then restart the PC and configure the BIOS how you want it. This may take care of the problem.

Hi, hope somebody has seen this before or can help!

I have an Asus X50N Laptop running Vista Home Premium 32bit.
(Model:X50N-AP048C)
AMD Turion 64 2.0GHz
3GB RAM, 120GB HDD

My problem is this:
I was installing a small program when my laptop froze completely for more than 5 minutes. I force powered it off by holding down the power button, and when I attempted to reboot, the laptop was completely dead other than the hard drive light staying on solid.

I then took out the battery and held down the power button for a minute, with the same HDD light-only result. I've reseated the RAM, repeated the first thing, and eventually gave up and left the screen open with the HDD light on.

After 5-10 minutes, the laptop suddenly came to life and showed the BIOS screen, then began to boot Windows. Unfortunately at this stage however, it just hangs at the green bar loading Windows and has done this for more than 15 minutes.

I ran a HDD test a few days back when it was working fine, and there was no sign of anything bad, but I'm going to take it out and run a full one now.

I'm not sure whether this is a software or hardware problem yet, but as the laptop delays boot even before the BIOS I'm assuming its hardware...

If anyone can help or has any suggestions to try I'd appreciate it.

Hi all,
Very strange problem with my IE7 on Win XP system (Fujitsu Siemens laptop Xi1546 btw).

Basically, so far ive only noticed it on those 2 sites but essentially the problem is, certain links on the site, when clicked, do nothing.
Youtube for e.g. the videos always have a 10 minute delay before they load. Regardless of time of day, whether im using GB youtube servers, or the kind of video, OR even if i change go home and use my home internet, same problem: 10 minute delay before the video loads. This must mean a setting which has gone awry? Metacafe works fine and it also uses Shockwave so why does my laptop hate youtube?
Also if i click to change servers on youtube, e.g. choose youtube UK, IE just 'loads' the page but stays stuck. Other websites work fine so its not a temporary lack of internet thats causing this.

Facebook is really bad and has the same 'loading but stuck problem.' I post messages on walls and it stays stuck but if i click profile, that loads instantly and it says ive posted..? I cant goto the groups page, or events, it just stays stuck and wont load. ive had this problem for about a couple of months..

overall i think its a setting for my IE, but what do you think? really appreciate help, really fed up.

Kind of screen glitch that appears before windows 8 lock screen appears at start /restart and a notable delay in starting/restarting time than with my 1st win8 install.

I think this appeared after I installed my windows 7 back ( dont ask me why..)( a clean install) and installed my win8 back again.I dont think Ive done them corectly:

I couldnt install win 7 it in C ,neither to format that partition because of this message [Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI systems, Windows can only be installed to GPT disks] and an error code 0x0000 smth... while attempting to format the C. I could only manage to instal windows 7 back after deleting all of the partiton and now I have a single C one.

When Ive tried to reinstall windows 8 these days I expected to see only a partiton where to put my windows but instead there were other minor ones too ( they dint shown during my win7 install) like they appear now if I open disk management .

So now I have that glitch when starting windows 8. I dont know how to describe it: its a black screen -with that windows 8 doted loading wheel -partially covering my Motherboard logo screen ( that screen at startup with bios setup, boot menu options etc).I say partially becuase I can see parts of my motherboard screen on left and right but they are kinda shredded and disolved into scraps.

I have googled this problem and can't seem to find an answer anywhere else, though the problem itself seems common enough.

Yesterday I must have accidently deleted some files I shouldnt have via disc cleanup because after that my display was limited to the lowest possible resolution and 4 bit color. Unfortunately, I had to break out the recovery CD ::shudder:: and reinstall my mobo drivers and video card drivers.

That seemed to fix the initial problem but now it takes windows about 4-5 minutes to boot. It stalls out on the "Windows is Starting Up" Screen. I have gone into msconfig-boot.ini and lowered the timeout to 3 seconds. Any other suggestions?

P.S. I also ran a virus scan today and I am clean in that department.

Hey Everyone:

Recently installed Windows SP2, a new mobo (Asus K8N-E Deluxe), new graphics card (Geforce 6800 GT), and new CPU (Athlon 64 3400+). Everything works well, but one annoying problem: my computer delays at the "Windows is starting up..." screen before it gets to the log-ins. Delay meaning about 45 seconds or so. It never did this before, and I have nothing really running in the startup menu, so I'm wondering what the heck it is looking for. Any advice? It eventually gets going, but the delay is annoying. I got this upgrade so everything would run FASTER! Alas, my wife thinks I'm an ***** for upgrading now. Any help would be appreciated so I can tell her it was all worth it.

Tell your wife to chill and you too, what's a few seconds , as long as everything is working.
If you are really bugged .You can run a bootlog and investigate, or run msconfig and turn off running programs one at a time to see which one is slowing down the Boot process.
SP2 also adds some security items one could be the windows firewall ,If you use a different one turn that off.

Hello,
I have a little peculiar annoyance with Windows 7. About a year ago I was into fps gaming and kept a close track of my reaction time using various online reaction testers: Human Benchmark - Reaction Time Test
Sound vs. Sight Reflexes
http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/humanbo...n_version5.swf
etc.
I used to average 150ms, but after installing Windows 7 it rose by about 60ms if not more. Back then I tried looking for solution, but in the end just reinstalled my Windows XP. Fast forward to today and I just bought a new laptop, which came with Windows 7, and tried doing some tests again only to get atrocious 230ms. Obviously I couldn't have gotten so slow, so I checked on my desktop pc and I got an average 180. I am still using my several years old mouse, but I tried the tests using AutoHotkey script for mouse click, so I don't think it's a problem with my hardware. Furthermore it doesn't seem to have an effect in game (I have a few reaction drills, which I wouldn't be able to do with the extra ms). If anyone of you who have 2 systems with different operating systems could check or better yet provide their insight on this little problem I would really apreciate it.
Thanks in advance!

PC manufacturers that expected to get their hands on the final version of Windows Vista yesterday will have to wait a couple more weeks for the OS, according to sources familiar with the Microsoft's plans.The software giant originally targeted yesterday for Vista's RTM (release to manufacturing), but a last-minute bug that "took most of the Vista team by surprise" caused an unexpected delay, said Ethan Allen, a quality assurance lead at a Seattle high-tech company that tests its products for Vista.Allen said the Vista team discovered the bug, which "would totally crash the system, requiring a complete reinstall", in Vista Build 5824 on 13 October. The team fixed the bug a week later in Vista Build 5840, he said, but it delayed the delivery of the OS to PC makers.The team is now targeting a new date of 8 November, for Vista's release...pcadvisor.co

As the title suggests, I am seeking a software solution that will add delay to the audio of a Windows computer. Specifically, Windows 8.1 x64, but I imagine the software architecture will be fairly similar for this specific use across modern Windows platforms.

To be clear, I would like to hear the audio from my computer after a delay. (not any specific input or output - I want to delay the audio that I hear from the computer).

What could also work would be the ability to delay any individual program's or process's audio stream. Modern Windows separates audio streams in its "Mixer." Utilizing this mixing architecture and specifically delaying one of those channels/programs would be a good solution, so a program that does this would be great to know about. I've done some research on this issue, and I keep running into dead ends (literally, dead links). I suspect this is because modifying or utilizing a computer's audio output stream directly can lend itself to illegal uses of such audio streams. (If you recall the "What U Hear" architecture that got removed from sound cards around the turn of the millennium, any strong-arming or censorship of such programs would fall in line).

Obviously, my desire is just to delay the audio as it is playing. Any help is appreciated.

I have a Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop.

So, I've had this issue for a LONG time, and am really sick and tired of it. Here goes.

I often reinstall Windows XP (like every 6 months) to get rid of all the program baggage and registry overhead that is accumulated during normal use. I found this to be the only way to get the computer back in tip-top shape. Anyway, sometimes after following my fairly systematic install checklist, I encounter a sudden delay in the startup. And once I encounter the delay (by up to a minute), I can never remove it without completely restarting the XP install.

So let me explain the delay. The system will boot through the Dell Intro screen, and then then Windows will quickly run through the autologin, display the background image, the intro sound clip will play, and then the system will just sit there. The only thing shown is the background image - no bottom toolbar. The hard disk is barely being used. It basically appears like the computer is doing nothing. And then, after 30-60 seconds, it suddenly starts hitting the hard drive and the menus and desktop items appear.

So, I've tried to narrow down the problem. So far, I've reinstalled XP again, only installing some basic apps like Norton, Adobe Reader, Itunes, and MS Office. I disabled all non-Microsoft services, and have disabled all secondary startup Items. Now, with this minimal installation, the delay which I've described is much lower than normal, but it is s...

So, apparently the idiots at Microsoft refuse to give me any free support for XP, not that i could find on their ridiculously confusing support site anyway...

Aaanyway, here's my problem folks:

So recently I've noticed that one of my svchost.exe is using a lot of memory (not CPU however, like in many similar cases). I've also noticed it starts of fine, using only about 7-8 MBs of memory upon a fresh boot. However, every time I start the computer from standby, it begins using more and more memory, up to about 110 MBs, and after a number of times of being in standby, the same svchost.exe will crash, giving the infamous message from the days of the blaster virus, that Remote Procedure Call has crashed and the system needs to reboot (and does so after 60 secs). So according to Process Explorer, apparently the troublemaking svchost.exe is the one hosting only the service Rpcss.dll.

I have no idea what is causing this problem, even after extensive searching on the net. I was also unable to find any working solution on this forum, but I apologize if there is one somewhere that I missed. I hate asking for help on an already solved problem.

Hope someone can help me.

Thanks in advance.

Hi there. My computer has had a variety of symptoms lately, especially in the last couple of days: high CPU (despite terminating programs that I'm not currently using), fan coming on frequently, difficulty closing Internet Explorer (even through the Task Manager), difficulty connecting to the internet (rebooting works for now), occasional spontaneous reboots. I also can't update Windows, receiving the error code 80070216.
 
I've run a number of anti-malware programs, including Malware Bytes, RKill, TDSS Killer, RogueKiller, and Hitman Pro. The scans are coming back clean or with what seem to be minor issues (e.g., tracking cookies), except for Hitman Pro, which flagged an issue with rpcss.dll, although it can't remove it.

A:rpcss.dll issue

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer. I am sorry that you are having troubles with your computer and will try my best to help you. I know that being infected is very frustrating, but I will be here to help you through the whole process of cleaning. Removing malware can be difficult and complicated and will most likely take many steps, so please stick with me until I have declared your computer clean. I always recommend printing my instructions before following them in case you cannot keep this webpage open. Please be sure to alway follow all steps exactly as they are written and let me know what happens each time. Stop and ask if something unexpected happens or if you are unsure of how to proceed.
 
Please respect my volunteered time and stay with me until I declare your computer clean. If you are going to be delayed for a while, please let me know.
 
Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.
 

Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.
