If you are facing slow startup problem in Windows 7, this article might help you.
Many times Windows 7 startup process takes too much time and you have to wait long to get Windows Desktop. It might happen due to large number of System Restore points in Windows.
Microsoft has acknowledge this problem and has released a hotfix to fix it.
Consider the following scenario:
- You have a large hard disk installed a computer that is running Windows 7.
- You create many restore points on the computer.
- You try to start the computer.
In this scenario, the startup process may be very slow.
This issue occurs because the boot plan for the ReadyBoot feature exceeds the size limit of 512 kilobytes (KB). Each restore point creates a snapshot of Windows that Volsnap.sys must validate during the startup process. When you create many restore points, the boot plan for the ReadyBoot feature eventually exceeds the size limit of 512 KB, and cannot be stored. Therefore, startup I/O operations are not precached, and the startup process is slow.
A supported hotfix is available from Microsoft. However, this hotfix is intended to correct only the problem that is described in this article. Apply this hotfix only to systems that are experiencing the problem described in this article.
