  1. So, I guess, there is no way to stop this lag.
  2. I removed audio card driver, disconnected it from PC and disabled 1394 controller in Device Manager. Disabled stisvc service (I don't use scanning via WIA anyway). Reinstalled and removed COMODO once again but after reboot there is still the lag. Is there a way to stop hooking manually? By the way, I can't find guard64.dll file in C:\Windows\system32\. Thanks for the "fast startup" tip, it's already on and it's describes why the system loads so faster after cold booting. UPD: I deleted "C:\Windows\system32\guard64.dll" string in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows\AppInit_DLLs" parameter and switched "LoadAppInit_DLLs" to 0 but it gave no effect. I wish I was able to perform fresh installation of my Windows copy... Unfortunately, I have really massive amount of software and its plugins to install again which is huge waste of time comparing to my waiting of system boot.
  3. Thanks for your deep inspection of my trace and detailed answering, cluberti. I have removed Comodo and Malwarebytes software from my OS environment and deleted all System Restore snapshots except the last one. I don't know how to get rid off hard disk pre-delay, there is no direct setting in BIOS (ASUS P8H67 motherboard). I tried to switch SATA controller working mode from IDE to AHCI but I've ended up only with the new fancy Windows 8's BSOD and boot looping. So I switched back to IDE emulation again. Anyway, now the strange thing is happening. While I'm cold booting (powering from "off" state) my PC, Windows 8 starts almost immediately. It takes nearly 5 seconds (maybe even less) after POST to show me logon screen. But if I'm rebooting, the typical lag and the long boot time are still there anyway Here is xbootmgr's long reboot trace: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/406695/boot_trace_20121117.rar I could provide you with the cold boot trace but I don't know what parameter I should use to tell xbootmgr to perform tracing after manual shutdown.
  4. Hello. Sorry for the delay. Here is the trace: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/406695/boot_trace_20121116.rar Thanks!
  5. Here it is: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/406695/procmon_bootlog_20121111.rar
  6. Deleted "2.0.6" folder using Ubuntu. But boot process still lags
  7. Disabled. But the folder "2.0.6" and boot lag are still there
  8. No, I have never used this functionality of Windows. I tried to switch off offline files option in sync center but there was still lagging after the reboot. And there is still something (explorer shows folder sized 0 bytes) in C:\Windows\CSC, which I am not able to remove due to permissions restrictions - http://puu.sh/1ok6e
  9. Yes, here it is: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/406695/procmon_bootlog.rar
  10. Switched back to local account - no changes
  11. I've tried to boot PC with network router switched off. Boot time took only ~5 seconds without any blank screen lags. Incredible! However, it all turns back with active network connection. Using pre-existing Windows 7 profile upgraded to Live account. But I think it doesn't matter because boot process lags at pre-logonui stage. I'm sorry, but I don't understand what I have to do with Local Session Manager delay. I tried to read the article you provided, but I didn't get anything. Can you give me some advice please?
  12. Hello! I've got the upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 8, everything is great, system works faster and UI is nice (for me ). But I've faced the problem with blank black screen before the system shows me logon ui. The blank screen holds for a quite time and the boot time has increased at least twice (comparing to Win7 boot time before) with this lag. It's really annoying for me, so I've made boot trace with xbootmgr. This is what I've got: http://puu.sh/1mp7w Winlogon phase lasts ~25 seconds. I've tried to do "xbootmgr -trace boot -prepSystem -verboseReadyBoot" but after second boot xbootmgr hangs on "Preparing system..." stage and nearly 40-50 minutes later finishes off with error message: http://puu.sh/1mrKR Also I've reinstalled all drivers to match Windows 8 support - no effect anyway. I am not able to understand the reason of this lag, so I'm asking for your help. Here is Windows Performance Analyzer trace file's download link: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/406695/boot_trace.rar Thanks. UPD: I was able to perform -prepSystem successfully with fixing registry values for defrag service. I achieved greatly increased perfomance for postboot stage. However, winlogon lag is still here and continues to annoy me.
