You didn't clear the events first but it appears that you have a hung install of .net and a problem with the HP CUE DeviceDiscovery Service. You can easily live without the HP CUE DeviceDiscovery Service so let's turn it off. Start, Run, services.msc, OK then find HP CUE DeviceDiscovery Service and right click and select Properties then change the Startup Type: to Disabled, Apply. OK. Your next boot will probably be 30 seconds faster.

The .net install is a bit of a problem.

You might try downloading and running the uninstaller:

I turned off "HP CUE DeviceDiscovery Service"


The uninstaller said
"We did not find the specified products to be installed"


The wait time for the taskbar is much less now.

Start, Run, eventvwr.msc, OK to bring up the Event Viewer. Right click on System and Clear All Events, No (we don't want to save the old log), OK. Repeat for Application. Reboot.

Then run vino's again

Go back into MSCONFIG and check normal boot then Apply and reboot into normal mode.

Clear the events as before then run Vino's again.

That looks nice and clean. I assume it's still a bit slow on the start?

Can you get task manager to come up while this is going on? If so under Processes, click twice on the CPU column header and see what is taking up some much CPU time. (You may have to check the box for Show Processes from All Users) You might also be able to get Process Explorer up and running.

You can also try to get a boot log. http://www.windowsre...00xp-and-later/

The log should be in C:\windows\ntbtlog.txt

Just found another program that draws pretty graphs of the boot process:

It's a demo only good for 30 days but it might show what is taking show what is taking so long.

I'm going to be away for a few days and unfortunately will not have access to that PC, but I will be back in about 5 or so days.
I will give your programs a try and report back.
Thank you very much. :)
