Windows 7 Enterprise x64
Intel i7 Quad
8GB DDR3

During startup and shutdown (especially shutdown), I'm experiencing a whole
lot of slowness. I think I've traced down why, but don't understand the
technical behind the errors. Here's what I'm seeing:

This application took longer than usual to start up, resulting in a
performance degradation in the system startup process:

Is it just me or does it appear as though the system is having issues with
standby or hibernation? The interesting part of this whole thing is that I've
never initiated a standby or hibernation process...only simple startups and
shutdowns. I'm at a loss. Anyone have any suggestions for me?

Thank you.

Steven:
I know that the silence is disheartening. I haven't replicated your
problem and I'm not trying to start another AMD/Intel dispute with what I'm
recommending. For testing purposes remove one or two sticks of ram. If the
problem is gone the cause is a conflict between the motherboard, bios and
processor when all 4 ram slots are populated. Another possibility is if your
system came with an AV program and you installed a different AV program
without fully removing all of the original program first. Have a great day.

First off, I want to thank you for your response, Dennis.

AMD/Intel dispute? Huh? Are you running an AMD? My notebook is an
Intel-based system. Removing each one of the DIMMs and running the system on
each one resulted in no differences...still have the lag at startup and
shutdown. In addition, this system did not come pre-installed with an AV
solution and it is a clean install of Win7Entx64, with only the basics
installed.

Any other suggestions out there in never-never land? At this point, I'm
ready to give up and move backward as I've experienced no issues running a
32-bit platform. Thanks again.

It has nothing to do with hardware, it's just your OS, which is I presume
just instaled and Search Indexer is indexing your data so is slowing system
down.Another thing is may be updating OS and other software installed.
Just give your mashine a bit of time and I belive it's going to be all fine.
Of course, I didn't read all of your message, so can't give you more info.
Don't like to give advices blind. One thing is what it says, other is actual
situation. Try to help yourself, moving around, trying this and that, and
you'll find the solution. Best wishes..... for a good mashine.

Hmm...yes, perhaps the same day of OS installation, I could expect the system
to slow "a little bit," but consistently 10 minutes at the shutdown portion
of every single restart...even two weeks after OS installation is a bit
ridiculous, wouldn't you say? Oh yeah, and in case it makes a difference, my
Windows Experience Index is 7.9 across the board.

It's definitely not a characteristic of Windows 7 to be slow either way.
You need to look very closely at your system to see if you can
discover what is affecting your system.

My startup and shutdown with Win 7 x64 Pro is pretty quick but I have
never timed it. Probably around two minutes for startup and about a
minute for shutdown.

I've had my system since late August.

That actually seems like a long time for a start-up and shutdown in Win7
64bit. I startup in about 25 seconds and shutdown in about 5-10 seconds.
Even in XP with my previous PC, I would start-up in about 30 seconds and
shutdown in about 5-10 seconds as well.
