    Hello @Harry Flatters,

    I am no expert - clearly - but I'm pretty sure that startup items are not causing the delay.

    One other thing that would clarify the above with regard to it being related to Startup . . .

     Autoruns for Windows

    Autoruns allows you to Disable problem Startup items.

    About Autoruns:

    This utility, which has the most comprehensive knowledge of auto-starting locations of any startup monitor, shows you what programs are configured to run during system bootup or login, and when you start various built-in Windows applications like Internet Explorer, Explorer and media players. These programs and drivers include ones in your startup folder, Run, RunOnce, and other Registry keys. Autoruns reports Explorer shell extensions, toolbars, browser helper objects, Winlogon notifications, auto-start services, and much more. Autoruns goes way beyond other autostart utilities.

    Autoruns' Hide Signed Microsoft Entries option helps you to zoom in on third-party auto-starting images that have been added to your system and it has support for looking at the auto-starting images configured for other accounts configured on a system. Also included in the download package is a command-line equivalent that can output in CSV format, Autorunsc.

    I hope this helps!

    Hi @Harry Flatters

    It seems that you have a Generic MassStorageClass USB Device that's causing the slow startup !

    Would that possibly be a two slot SD card reader (no cards in it) which registers as drives F: &G: ?

    I'll go and check......

    I think so!

    the trace reveals tow mass storage plug and play devices with these device IDs:
    • USBSTOR\DISK&VEN_GENERIC&PROD_MASSSTORAGECLASS&REV_1536\000000001536&0
    • USBSTOR\DISK&VEN_GENERIC&PROD_MASSSTORAGECLASS&REV_1536\000000001536&1


    look in the device manager for such devices and check their states: The trace shows messages about battery power
    => Do you have any messages or warnings about that?

    Suggested solution: disable these SD card readers, from the device manager and see if it helps.

    Well you, my man, are a bloody marvel. I unplugged the card reader and bingo! back to a 5 second boot to the login page.

    Can I ask a couple of questions?

    1) Why would/should an empty USB card reader cause all this aggravation.
    2) For my education and future reference, can you pop up a screen shot of WPA that shows where you found this.
    3) One of my earlier theories from WPA was that autochk was causing the delay, but I knocked it out in the registry for drives C & D but didn't think about it for the card reader drives F & G. Was that the problem that autochk was possibly hanging up/timing out on empty drives?

    Hello @Harry Flatters,

    [1] Perhaps the last card you had in there did NOT eject properly.
    [2] Where is the Card Reader situated in the Boot Sequence?

    I hope this helps.

    Hi, they are not listed in the BIOS boot sequence, to my knowledge, just plugged in to a USB on the front of the PC. Unplugged it and all was well with the world again
