Slow start after upgrade of Vista SP2

I've upgraded to Vista SP2 may 27 09, whenever I rebooted, because it takes an age to password screen to display. Later, he takes my OS a long loading time of all programs.

I suggest to perform a clean boot to prevent loading in the background startup programs.

You can have a few contradictory items running in the background and the origin of this problem.

To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows Vista by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts. This article describes how to solve problems in Windows Vista by performing a clean boot. This article also describes how to start the Windows Installer service and how to reset the computer so that it starts as usual.

Note When you perform a clean boot, you may temporarily lose some functionality. When you start the computer as usual, the function returns. However, you may receive the error message, or you can experience the original behavior.

If the computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may prevent you from following these steps. We recommend strongly that you do not use System Configuration utility to change startup options on the computer, unless a support engineer Microsoft directs you to do so. This can make the computer unusable.

a. log in the computer using an account with administrator rights.

b. click Start collapse this image enlarge this image, type msconfig.exe in the Start Search box and press ENTER to start the System Configuration utility.

The collapse of this image to this image if you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password or click continue .

c. under the general tab, click Selective startup , and then clear the Load Startup items check box. (The box use the Boot file is not available.)

d. on the Services tab, select the hide all Microsoft services check box and then click on disable all .

Note Following this step lets services Microsoft continue to run. These services include networking, Plug-and-Play, record of events, error reporting, and other services. If you disable these services, you can permanently delete all restore points. Do not do this if you want to use to restore the system with the existing restore points.

e. click OK , and then click restart .

Step 2: Enable half the services

a. follow steps 1a and 1B to start the System Configuration utility.

b. click on the Services tab and then click to select the hide all Microsoft services check box.

c. Click to select half of the check boxes in the Service list.

d. click OK and then click restart .

Step 3: Determine whether the problem returns

If the problem persists, repeat steps 1 and 2. In step 2, click to clear half of the check boxes that you have initially enabled in the Service list.

If the problem does not occur, repeat steps 1 and 2. In step 2, select only half of the remaining check boxes that are cleared in the Service list. Repeat these steps until you have selected all the check boxes.

If only one service is selected in the list of services , and you the problem persists, the service selected the cause of the problem. Go to step 6. If no service is causing this problem, go to step 4.

Step 4: Enable half of the startup items

a. perform a clean boot by repeating step 1.

b. click on the Startup tab and then click to select half of the check boxes in the startup item list.

c. click OK , and then click restart .

Step 5: Determine whether the problem returns

If the problem persists, repeat steps 1 and 4. In step 4, click to clear half of the check boxes that you have originally selected in the startup item list.

If the problem does not occur, repeat steps 1 and 4. In step 4, select only half of the remaining check boxes that are cleared in the startup item list. Repeat these steps until you have selected all the check boxes.

If only one startup item is selected in the startup item list, and you still experience the problem, start selected in the list element is the service that is causing the problem. Go to step 6.

If no startup item causes this problem, a Microsoft service most likely the cause of the problem. To determine which Microsoft service may be causing the problem, repeat step 1 and step 2 without selecting the hide all Microsoft services check box in each step.

Step 6: Resolve the problem

After you determine the startup item or the service that is causing the problem, contact the manufacturer of the program to determine if the problem can be solved. Or, run the System Configuration utility, and then click to clear the check box of the element of the problem.

Step 7: Reset the computer to start as usual

When you are finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to reset the computer to start as usual:

Click on start to reduce this image enlarge this image, type msconfig.exe in the Start Search box and press ENTER.

The collapse of this image to this image if you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password or click continue .

On the general tab, click the Normal startup option, and then click OK .

When you are prompted to restart the computer, click restart .

Hope this helps :)

  • Will not start after installing the Vista SP2

    Last night my old Vista SP2 computer.  Installation seems to have success, but to restart the computer as part of the installation of automatic update, it failed.  During a part of the boot with a screen similar to BACK sequence, it arrested, printed a msg that appears to be in hexadecimal and would go no further.  Restart with a sequence of hot or cold start to produce the same result.  I tried to correct the problem by using the Startup Repair on the Vista installation disc and received a msg that Windows could not repair the problem itself.  I sent the results to Microsoft using this option in the Startup Repair tool.

    Restore point:

    Try typing F8 at startup and in the list of Boot selections, select Mode safe using ARROW top to go there > and then press ENTER.

    Try a restore of the system once, to choose a Restore Point prior to your problem...

    Click Start > programs > Accessories > system tools > system restore > choose another time > next > etc.


    If the above does not work, try to make a Bootable ERD to do a Startup Repair:

    As is the case with most computers/laptops these days, they do not come with good Vista disc to repair only the recovery disks.

    As your can fall into the above category: download the ISO on the provided link and do a repair of the disc.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    More information shows what the process that it loads.

    You can make a tool to restart system, System Restore, etc. with it.

    Read all the info on the website on how to create and use it.

    ISO Burner:

    It's a very good Vista repair disc.

    You can do a system restart tool, system, etc it restore.

    There is not a disk of resettlement.

    And the 32-bit is what normally comes on a computer, unless 64-bit.

    see if this program helps you to determine what is take up space

    by default system restore will have up to 15% of the capacity of the hard disk

    you would like to reduce this amount

    also use disk cleanup

    The other Options tab is available when you choose to clean up the files of all users on the computer. This tab includes two additional ways to free disk space even more:

    • Programs and features. Open programs and features in Control Panel, where you can uninstall programs you no longer use. The column size in programs and features shows how much disk space each program uses.

    • System Restore and shadow copies. Guests delete you all but the most recent restore point on the disc.

  • After the upgrade to vista SP2, windows does not start.

    I have download and install vista SP2, everything goes well with the installation, no error, it ends without a problem, then it restarts my computer and after reboot, it comes up saying that windows didn't start (or your computer might not start)

    I have 2 choices, start windows normally, that does nothing when I pick it up, the other option is to fix the problem, when I choose that it restore my computer to until I installed SP2, ive tried 3 times now with no luck.

    also on a note related, when I try and open internet explorer 7, it crashes, it is said that she is looking for a fix for the problem and suggests so I run windows update, which is what suggested I download SP2.

  • Network drivers no longer will charge after upgrade to Vista Home Premium sp2.

    On a laptop Sony PCG - 7113 L VGN-NR220E, that is running Windows Vista Home Premium sp1, I tried to upgrade to sp2 who said he could not make the transfer and restarted, tried once more and then restored sp1.  All came back as the same with the exception of all the network drivers cannot be loaded.  Here is a list of drivers who have failed.

    • ISATAP.
    • Map Microsoft ISATAP #3
    • Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface
    • Marvell Yukon 88E8039 PCI-E Fast Ethernet
    • Controller of
    • LAN0Express AS IEEE 802.11 g PCI-E fit

    I went back to the site from Sony and all the latest drivers downloaded from the site and tried to install.  Only some allowed me to do even while administering it, but even those that didn't load on reboot even if it finds the drivers.

    I tried to uninstall the drivers in Device Manager, but nothing helped.  None of the drivers loaded when you restart.  I tried disabling verification of driver and reinstall the network drivers that I downloaded from Sony site without success.  Then I tried to download a driver directly from Marvell Yukon site for its pilot, but which also failed.

    Given that this approach did not work, I tried to get sp2 to load looking for why it was not installing.  I found a patch that was supposed to help the installation in certain situations that I loaded and sp2 installation I tried again a full download on another computer, which has not the same way.  I then tried to load sp1 over himself, but he refused, saying he was already loaded.

    I tried to start off backups old session, but without success.  I wouldn't have to reinstall the operating system everywhere, especially since I don't even know if the owner of the computer has a copy of the operating system.

    It seems to be that something related to all the fuction of network that worked before you attempt the installation of sp2 and was obvious immediately after.  Is there something I can do to restore the network features without a complete reinstallation of the operating system?

    Free unlimited installation and compatibility support is available for Windows Vista, but only for Service Pack 2 (SP2). This support for SP2 is valid until August 30, 2010.

  • Could not start the desktop Vista after installing Windows Vista SP2, error: 0XC0190036.

    Original title: vista sp2 problem.

    I have a laptop that I haven't used in a while.  I took on a trip and received the message that the updates are available.  One was SP2.  After the update is complete, it failed to start with a message OXC0190036.

    Startup Repair said that he could not solve the problem.  Restoration of the system has not only restore - labeled SP1 and it allows you to finalize the restoration of files and stays there.  (I waited for 3 hours without change).
    I have a XP install disc that I used before installing Win 7 on my desktop, but it does not give me the opportunity to do an installation.
    Can enter the command prompt, I'm perplexed as to what to do.
    I want to get this laptop that works so I can give to someone who needs a faster machine.

    XP disk will not help you to fix Vista

    As the system restore does not try a startup repair and / or a restoration of the system using a Microsoft Vista DVD

    Manufacturers recovery disks normally do not have Service Options; they are normally a relocation to the factory only settings option.

    Here is the guide to repair Options using a Vista DVD from Microsoft.

    If a friend or a work acquantance of yours has one, you can borrow and use it for repairs.

    Table of contents

    1. Overview of Windows Vista repair options
    2. How to perform an automatic repair of Windows Vista using Startup Repair
    3. Advanced Tools Overview
    4. Conclusion

    If you do not or can not borrow a Microsoft DVD there is a download of a file ISO of Vista Startup Repair available that you can put on a Bootable floppy to make the above startup repair and that the method is recommended by a large number of posters in these Forums.

    Unfortunately, you have to buy it.

    Here is a link to it:


    And here are a few ways to reinstall Vista.

    There is no Windows Vista downloads available from Microsoft.

    You can contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of recovery disks.

    They should do this for a small fee.

    And if you have never received a recovery disk when you bought your computer, there should be a recovery Partition on the hard drive to reinstall Vista on how you purchased your computer.

    The recovery process can be started by pressing a particular combination of the key or keys at startup. (Power on / start)

    Maybe it's F10, F11, Alt + F10, etc., depending on the manufacturer.

    Ask them to the proper key sequence.

    You can also borrow and use a Microsoft Vista DVD, which contains the files for the different editions of Vista (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate) must be installed. The product key on your computer / Laptop box determines what Edition is installed.

    Other manufacturers recovery DVDs are should not be used for this purpose.

    And you need to know the version of 'bit' for Vista, as 32-bit and 64-bit editions come on different DVDs

    Here's how to do a clean install of Vista using a DVD of Vista from Microsoft:

    "How to do a clean install and configure with a full Version of Vista '

    And once the operating system is installed, go to your computer manufacturer's website and get the latest drivers for your particular model or laptop computer.

    And phone Activation may be necessary when you use the above installation method.
