Vista's boot time suddenly slow

    Hello,

    my Vista booted with scrolling the green thingy about 7 times.
    Yesterday, all of a sudden, it started to boot with scrolling it about
    20-25 times.
    I tried to turn off some programs to load with Windows (Steam, Adobe
    and iTunes). Also turned some services off/put to Manual (like Printer
    Spooler, iTunes Helper and so on), but that didn't help.
    When I installed Windows I found out that disabling service named
    Server made the boot time that short and it's still disabled.

    Any ideas what might slow down the boot up process? I guess something
    related to network and networking services but I'm not sure.

    Thanks

    I haven't updated any drivers or installed new hardware. I haven't eve
    done System Restore before and I'm not sure, maybe I've even disable
    the whole feature
    Any way to diagnose where the booting process is hanging or what i
    causing it

    In the Event Viewer drill down to

    Applications and Services Log => Microsoft => Windows =>
    Diagnostics-Performance => Operational

    Look for events in the 100 range. These are Boot Performance Monitoring
    events. If a driver, service, or application is taking an unusually long
    time to startup during the boot up you will find it here.

    It seems that it might come from the old known Kerberos problem afte
    Vista SP1. "Unable to initialize the security package Kerberos fo
    server side authentication. The data field contains the error number.
    But I guess that's not the problem here cause I've had that problem fo
    quite some time and no boot issues

    Is the computer joined to a domain? That is the exact symptoms of
    misconfigured DNS with a domain joined computer. That would also account for
    the kerberos errors.

    Any new ideas? I hijcked 'this thread
    (http://www.vistax64.com/vista-performance-maintenance/166509-vista-really-slow-start-up.html
    but there're no new ideas. The WD HD works fine - no problems running m
    pc, no errors in event viewer and so on. Anything else? I've used Slee
    for now and when I've had to restart, it's still slow

  9. I checked my Event Viewer, and every single entry is either critical,
    error, or warning. I get critical when windows starts up or shuts down,
    and errors when it goes into standby. I checked some of the entries for
    warning, and one said "LogonUI.exe responded slower than expected."

    Any ideas on what could potentially fix this?

    All help is appreciated, cause when I start windows after turning it
    off, it takes about 3 min to start Windows Explorer and the desktop.
    I've been looking for a while, and I haven't really found a solution
    that worked. It's incredibly frustrating, particularly after installing
    something that needs to reboot.

    I'm pretty sure it's not my hardware: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600, ATI
    Radeon HD 3870 X2, ASUS Maximus Formula, 4GB GSkill RAM, Sythe Katana 2
    cooling on CPU.

    GLOBALLY? PARTICULARLY?

    You've only said "every single entry"... that's not detailed enough.

    You need to list EACH entry, one at a time.

    For starters.

    Vista is a real slowpoke if you start it from scratch. Have you tried
    "Hibernate" for your shutdown procedure? I find this really speeds things up
    when booting up in the morning.

    Good to hear.
    Now, continue to practice safe hex, clean and scan your operating system
    frequently.
    This application may assist as well:
    CCleaner - Free
    Cleans temporary internet files, cookies, history, recent urls, application
    MRUs, etc. ...
    http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/
    The toolbar offered prior installation is not required!
    If Windows Defender is utilized go to Applications, under Utilities
    uncheck "Windows Defender" (so it won't delete the history of WD).
    If you wish, click 'Options' button the 'Settings' [check] 'Run CCleaner
    when the computer starts'.
    Setup CCleaner to Automatically Run Each Night in Vista or XP

    Good luck :)
