I have extremely slow shutdown and boot-up speeds. I'm using windows 7 home premium with intel dual core. I have 4gb ram on a 32 bit system. Don't know what I'm doing wrong, but have collected some info from the event viewer. I would appreciate any advice. My average boot time is taking approx 150 seconds. I'll post below:

This is boot performance:

Do you have a UPS? Just checking because I had a similar issue with my UPS software and the Power Management software conflicting which caused Power Management to take like 637 ms longer than usual during startup/shutdown. Windows actually told me out of the blue it was the cause and gave me the option to disable it, which resumed original great performance.

Slow boot time

Thanks for your reply. I do have Toshiba power supply monitoring software (I have a Toshiba P205, s6287, 4g ram, 200g IDE hdd). How do you disable the power supply software?

Do you see anything else that might help. I sure would like to get the shut down and boot time down to less than a minute.

Great forum! Thanks for everyone's help. I could never figure this stuff out by myself.

Thanks rbridgeman, it cut my time in half. I'm down to 76 seconds, but still trying to reduce that.

Thanks again, great forum...
