5 mins for startup and shutdown is quite astounding.
has it always been so?
did you do a full clean install or upgrade?
what are your specs.?

for the startup you can open msconfig and switch off all none essential startup programs and apps.
in fact only check the microsoft startups
chek see if you have anti virus programs running startup scans, updates etc etc.
its a good place to start.

i hate computers!
but cant help myself....

As a pro in Computing I have Maximised my windows 7. At one point I did a Brand new reinstall, maximised everything, removed all useless programs, and on 5 of my computers, all of them took between 3 to 10 minutes to Boot.

Believe me, there is nothing in my all my windows that would account for this long period of time to reboot any of my comnputers.

So I think we should ask Microsoft what blunder they have done to create this situation.

P.S. All of the computers that takes forever to boot are pcs that have windows 7 SP1 on them. Could it be SP1. But if i don't install Windows 7 SP1, I have tremendous problems to connect my Windows XP to my Windows 7 Machines.

I think the best thing might be just to remove all Windows 7 and reinstall Windows XP or Vista.

I have been working with windows 7 since it came out, and I have always had problems with it.

I do not recommend Windows 7 to anyone. If you want a windows, wait for windows 8 and pray that a miracle happens and that maybe Windows 8 might work half as well as Linux Ubuntu.

BIGGEST mistake in the world! Why go back to a volkswagon from a cadillac....makes no sense to me.

Sounds like user error problems to me. You probably do not understand how Windows 7 works and maybe you should study up on all the great features.
I have been working on Windows 7 since it came out too and there are not HALF as many problems as XP and vista. I have no idea what you have repaired.

Alot is the amount of Ram involved. Also if the windows 7 is an upgrade etc.

Gates Not Bill, I think you should stick to the lesser Linux Ubuntu and struggle along.
Your statement does not hold water, sorry to say.

arun4u77, uncheck all startup items except your AV and the scheduler. Also turn off the logon and logoff sounds as they take awhile too.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

I have install Windows 7 64bit Home Premium new on 3 machines (new builds, 4GB RAM), Windows 7 64bit Professional new on 1 machine (new build 4GB RAM) and upgraded Vista 32bit laptop to Windows 7 32bit Home Premium (2GB RAM) and NONE of them takes any where near that long to boot up. In fact "As a pro in Computing I have Maximised my windows 7..." may mean you caused your own problem by not using recommended settings. You should delete the partition and start over with a clean install using the proper settings and make sure you have sufficient memory installed for the version you are using. And do not forget to install the proper drivers for your hardware.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
