... hi "spencer.p"... first of all just to let you know I do "NOT" have Vista here; but have these saved notes which should be of help:

... [press] windows(flag key)+ r ...should bring-up "run" box

... (type) eventvwr.msc [press ENTER]

... Navigate in the Event Manager using the menu on the left side using the following path:

... Applications and Services Logs> Microsoft> Windows> Diagnostics-Performance > Operational

... contains performance diagnostics not only for the Windows shutdown but also for standby and boot performance issues.

... in the "Operational" window look@ "Boot Performance Monitoring"

... clicking the event will show time details (tab)

... "MainPathBootTime" measures the time it takes for the system to load all drivers and services that are critical to user interaction leading to Windows desktop.

... "BootPostBootTime" includes all the other drivers and processes that aren’t critical to user interaction and can be loaded with low-priority I/O that always gives preference to user-initiated actions that execute using Normal I/O priority.

... If you look in Event Viewer, you’ll see a separate value called BootTime, which measures the sum of these two values. (Subtract 10 seconds from this value to account for the idle time that indicates the boot process is completely done.) In addition, the logs are filled with clues that can help you figure out what went wrong and why a specific startup (or shutdown) took longer than normal.

Hi Mavis007, Tried to download updates, installed it but event viewer still records boot and shut down issues. This is what it shows:
Warning 5/18/2009 6:41:15 PM Diagnostics-Performance 103 Boot Performance Monitoring
Critical 5/18/2009 6:41:15 PM Diagnostics-Performance 100 Boot Performance Monitoring
Warning 5/18/2009 6:41:11 PM Diagnostics-Performance 203 Shutdown Performance Monitoring

Any other ideas?

Thanks mate.

quick scan , MBAM runs best in normal mode .
