  1. Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    To the OP, I could not agree more! After you get out a matrix of the 9,000 licensing upgrade/sidegrade BS for the "Last version of Windows you will......OMFingGOD, I pray this is not reality......ever need ever be damned plagued with" and actually get the cute little mobile phone OS booted on your desktop PC, it then only takes 10 minutes forever for your eyes to adjust as you ask yourself "did I somehow accidentally burn the 27 yr old Windows 3.1 on this install CD....where the f$%^# did the Aero transparency, gradients, high tech effects that I patiently waited almost 30 years for and finally got with WIN7....go?!?!" But that's okay, there are at least still the 32million SEVEN other colors to choose for my windows. Followed by a bit of "Why did it used to take two clicks and mouse motion to run my program from the start menu and now it takes 4 clicks, some scrolling and a ton of reading to find and run them now?!?". But that's okay let's to to the one thing that wasn't broken, never really needs to change much, good old Windows Explorer to open my files. Whoops, WTF is this "File Explorer" thing? Hmm, they renamed it that must mean it's more efficient now. Nice ribbon - now it is only 9 clicks for me to do anything that previously took 1 click - NICE! This will certainly help add a ton of unnecessary churn at work my employer who also bought 100,000 copies of this OS is certain to be thrilled with these (slow WAAYYY down) anti-productivity improvements! Topped off finally with "if my godd@m doopie took a doopie, it might look much like this WIN10 OS" <reaching for the WIN7 install CD>. Yes, I too share the OP's pain.
  2. Trace Windows 7 boot/shutdown/hibernate/standby/resume issues

    greyeyezz, that's EXACTLY what's happening to my one system with the cold boot issues and it NEVER has more than one trace it's always trace1.fx, never cleans up the other files clearly something is set wrong somewhere. I was hoping Andre could shed some light with as many of these as he's looked at. Every other WIN7 system I have has 5 trace?.fx files and never leaves the others behind. I'd rather not rebuild this system and can't seem to figure out how to get a good trace but something is clearly not right with superfetch on this system. Andre, any help would be greatly appreciated!
  3. Trace Windows 7 boot/shutdown/hibernate/standby/resume issues

    But this is the only WIN7 system I can find that doesn't flush them and create more than 1 trace. As far as the cold boot I guess what i'm asking is what xperf command line is best to grab a capture that maybe you could look at to tell me what's taking the most time and most disk io, etc on a cold boot? Thanks!
  4. Trace Windows 7 boot/shutdown/hibernate/standby/resume issues

    Hey Andre what is the exact trace command I should run to have a weird boot issue for you to possibly look at? Cold boots are > 10 min, every warm boot results in a readyboot plan and < 2 min starts with cache hitting yet only one trace ever is kept and following files never flush from this system after rolled into single current trace1.fx: ecboot.avail etlboot_1.dqpa etlboot_1.dqpaf ecboot.dqpafm ecboot.dqpafmsg ReadyBoot.etl.old Trace1.fx I can sit and refresh and watch each of the above files fill and grow in first 2 min after boot, the trace1.fx created and then nothing - no flushing of these other files and unlike EVERY other system, NEVER a 2nd trace not matter how many reboots. For the life of me, I cant get a trace to troubleshoot must not be running right command and need help and cant ever get a cold boot using readyboot plan. Thanks!
  5. Trace Windows 7 boot/shutdown/hibernate/standby/resume issues

    For anyone in the same boat where sys restore fails, here's what I did to recover to bootable to then uninstall and reinstall the trace tools to then start fresh WITHOUT the drivers trace: 1. Boot an alternate livecd 2. MOVE the following 3 directories out of "C:\Program Files" to say C:\Temp: -Debugging Tools for Windows (x64) -Microsoft SDKs -Microsoft Windows Performance Toolkit 3. Restart in NORMAL mode (NOTE: SAFE mode still BSOD for me) 4. Type your password to log in and immediately hold the SHIFT key to stop startup programs 5. Once system settles, MOVE those 3 folders back to "C:\Program Files" 6. Go into add/remove programs and uninstall all 3 If you then wish to start over without the DRIVERS trace, reinstall them and start over. Hope it helps!
  6. Trace Windows 7 boot/shutdown/hibernate/standby/resume issues

    Hi I've got a big problem, I issued the command from first post and got the BSOD. I enabled system restore prior to installing the MSI and before issuing the command taking manual sys restore snapshots. Now for the problem, system restore fails to restore with an F8-sys restore! Now I need to gut out whatever boot driver and registry keys are installed for the boot tracing as a system rebuild is out of the question. Can you shed some light onto what I can manually remove via an alternate boot livecd to restore my system to a usable state? Thanks!
  7. [Release] CCleaner v2.13.720

    It would be great if it didn't go and install the yahoo toolbar without asking........that needs to go and addonpacks should state whether that crap is being installed silently.......
