      Tried the bootvis downloaded from the site mentioned & it prevented the Windows sign-on screen from appearing when it restarted the PC...black screen for >5 minutes. Hit reset button to restart, got 'Windows is starting up' but PC froze. Reset again...got black screen again. WTF? Looks like my PC is hosed!

        hit F8 when rebooting right after the BIOS disappears.. then pick last known good configuration..

        that will get you back in to windows

        and then always make sure you download microsoft stuff from MICROSOFT..

            I run bootvis and get the following:



            Why doesn't it give me any info on:

            Cpu Usage
            Driver Delay
            Boot Activity?

            Also, what is the "Warning! Disk write caching is disabled." mean?

                    I think it quit working on me. Bootvis froze on the last screen on me. I don't think it just quit but I guess it could still be going. It has had this screen up for about the last 15 minutes:

                        Mine has sat for over an hour, so I restarted the computer and I am letting it go now.

                          Okay here's an update. i started it at 1:30 eastern. it is now 5:12 EST and still no change. I guess the only thing I can use bootvis for is to see how long it takes to boot, which currently is around 55 sec.


                          Edit:

                          It finally gave me a message. It says Timeout while waiting for service to start

                            If it freezes when you are trying to use the optimise option, you probably have a window behind the main window that gives you an error message. This option requires the use of Microsoft defrag, so if you have removed it as part of your installation, then optimise don't work.

                            If you get it working, it generally shaves a few secs off your boot times !

                            cheers

                              I ended up reinstalling Windows due to a new hard drive and it worked with the new install. Thanks though. Now I just need to figure oiut why my videos are lagging.
