    just like the title says. my boot time was very consistently 25 seconds from power button pushed to login screen for the last couple of months

    last night it took the thing over 4 minutes to get to the login screen.

    today it took 2 minutes and 55 seconds after running startup repair...

    here's the event viewer log:

    i had decided to start leaving my printer plugged into my computer, a lexmark x3430, and for some reason this was causing the trouble. that was the only other thing that had changed, and i had forgot to even check if this might have been the cause, and sure enough it was...

    do you have any third party manager that u use i.e win7 mgr or else, and u tried to speed up boot time? once that was the culprit in my case. Also, check u r system start ups and see if anything is unusual. I will start there before considering any system restore if available

    thanks for the reply but no i have not used any type of third party manager or otherwise to speed up boot time. the only thing that has changed on my system is installed ultra iso yesterday afternoon. used the pc for a while, then shut it down. booted it later and it took nearly 5 minutes to boot. booted it today and it took almost a full 3 minutes. i've checked everything that autoruns at boot and otherwise. ran a scan with avast and nothing. absolutely nothing has changed other than ultra iso. what's even more strange is my bios now posts for 30 seconds alone where it used to post for about 10 seconds at the most.

    i just restored from a backup that i made a week ago, and it's still not booting as quick as it was.

    i'm at a loss at this point...
