Hi, recently I've noticed that Windows 8 is taking at least a minute to start up on my SSD (compared to a few seconds when I first did the win7 to win8 upgrade). I followed the sticky's instructions on tracing the boot but still can't make heads or tails of the information. If someone can help me to figure out what is causing the delay, I'd greatly appreciate it. I can post the files that came from the trace, but I need to know if it is safe to before I post them here.
