When working with windbg 6.6, I'm delayed because
windbg tries to load symbols for lots of 3rd party modules
at startup and at breakpoint stop. I tried to suppres symbol loading
with an winsrv.ini-File, but this does not work.



Output of windbg is like :
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for
cmon.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for
VMparport.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for
vmx86.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for EIO.sys
*** ERROR: Symbol file could not be found. Defaulted to export symbols
for atkosdmini.dll -
*** ERROR: Symbol file could not be found. Defaulted to export symbols
for atkosdmini.dll -
.....


symsrv.ini like this:

[Exclusions]
amdk8.*
ati2cqag.*
ati2dvag.*
ati2mtag.*
ati3duag.*
atikvmag.*
ativvaxx.*
atkdisp.*
.....


I placed symsrvr.ini in the same directorie as symsrv.dll.

Try disabling unqualified symbol loads (using -snul command line
parameter, or .symopt+ 100). This should prevent windbg from
trying to load symbols in the first place.
