  1. Thanks Andre. I have a feeling it's probably both Malwarebytes and Trusteer combined. I'll do as you suggest. Merry Christmas!
  2. Compress them as 7z (with method LZMA2 and compression ratio ULTRA. This really reduces the size a lot) and upload the 7z to SkyDrive Done it: https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=36C44C03C4D93E47!2808&authkey=!ANk3O2_LayWSzeM
  3. There you go Andre: http://tinyurl.com/co79w4b Due to the size of the file I'm sharing via Tonido. Let me know if you have trouble getting the files.
  4. Sorry to sound dense but can you elaborate on that?
  5. I uninstalled it and it made no difference so I put it back on. I'll uninstall it and rerun the logs?
  6. Gotcha! Here you go: http://sdrv.ms/Uk1Yts
  7. Here's one of the requested files: http://sdrv.ms/UWZvSc And the other: (I ended up for some reason with 6 pml files all created at the same time. I've only uploaded the last one which was the smallest one. If you want the others, let me know): http://sdrv.ms/TdTpOO
  8. Just uninstalled MSE. Didn't make the slightest difference. Is there anything else that could be causing the issue? Malwarebytes perhaps? Is there anything I can do in the registry to tweak the ExplorerInit settings? Edit: Just disabled Malwarebytes and it took 30 seconds off the boot time down to 109 seconds. That's still a bit slow given how much ram and processor speed I have.....any further ideas as to how to get this time down?
  9. Thanks Andre :-) What is MSE? What do you suggest I do? Uninstall 'MSE' and install something else? What would you suggest? Edit. Microsoft Security essentials...duh! I get you. Any suggestions as to what? Is Malwarebytes alone sufficient as a substitute?
  10. Hi Andre, I just found this forum and your extremely informative posts. Thank you for sharing your expertise! I am currently running a new desktop with AMD 4100 quad core processor, 3.6GHz overclocked to 4ghz with 32gb of high speed ram and a 1tb seagate hard drive running at 7200rpm. I am using Windows 7 professional. It's a clean install and when I first booted it up it booted in just over 43 seconds. This has now gone up to around 125-150 seconds according to the Event Viewer. This is really insane considering how much power my system has and how few apps are installed. I was wondering if you could help find out what is going on and how I can get it back down again? I have applied all the patches you recommend, gone through the superfetch training and cleaned up my startup apps using msconfig and defragged but it has only really cut off about 15 seconds from the boot sequence. I have created a boot trace which I have uploaded here: https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=36C44C03C4D93E47!2799&authkey=!AO4jKn0ovzxMNC0 And here is what happened before the optimisation: https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=36C44C03C4D93E47!2803&authkey=!APxdvN9DixgsFkU and after: https://skydrive.live.com/redir?resid=36C44C03C4D93E47!2804&authkey=!AEltdbnbzRMDMZg Any advice you can give would be much appreciated as I cannot fathom why my computer boots so slow given how much power it has.
