Windows 7 boot delay

  1. Many times, but not always, win 7 32-bit takes over 6 mins to boot. I have disabled every item in the startup tab of the system configuration, and all the services in the service tab excluding the ms ones.
    Looking at the system log of the event viewer I see that most of the delay comes from the item “Kernel-processor-power - Processor 1 in group 0”. The item below “processor 0 in group 0” never causes a delay.

    Any recommendations what is causing this or any tests I should perform to pinpoint the problem further?

    Thanks in advance

    Is Windows 7 the first OS you have used on this computer?

    Tmagic650,
    Thanks for the response.
    Have used Win xp on this computer before doing a clean install of win 7 ult.
    I didn't have this problem with win 7 for quite some time after the installation.
    Thanks,

    Look in the Device Manager and tell us if you see any yellow exclamation points

    Download and run free Superantispyware and Temp File Cleaner from Old Timer and tell us what they find

    Hi Tmagic650,
    Ran superantispyware and it found an Adware.Tracking Cookie.
    I systematically run the CCleaner to remove tmp and other clutter.
    Thanks,
