I have a Win 7 32-bit Pro machine joined to a domain on a 10/100 ethernet connection. At times this machine runs all sorts of slow. For example, it took it 20 seconds for a command prompt to pull up, not to mention the other 15 seconds for the start bar to recognize that I clicked on it. There are a few times where it took almost 10 minutes for the machine to even prompt for a password after powering it on. There are various other situations in which the computer exhibits it's "slowness".
Inspecting task manager does not reveal anything obvious. All other processes combined consumes < 1% in an idle state, and physical memory sits around 30%-40% consumed. On the other hand, the System Event View reveals that several process are reporting
X service entered the stopped state and
X service entered the start state at various times. Some other errors in the event viewer that reveals symptoms of the
Event ID: 7011 A timeout (30000 milliseconds) was reached while waiting for a transaction response from the X service.
There were several of these errors where the
X serice was
Microsoft .Net Framework NGEN v4.0.30319_X86, a few others. I don't think that these services are causing the problem. Rather there's something thats causing this services to time out. What on earth is going on?
