I write too much Perl.

I'm an independent contractor specializing in Perl, automated testing and software engineering training. If you have a nasty snarl of critical Perl code untangled, or need a perl or CPAN module bug fixed, or want to train your developers in writing tests, or find your development time is in a code 'n' fix loop and need help, I'm your man.

Yes, Chrome is up to date. I gave Canary a shot and it works! Thanks, that will work as a stop gap until they fix the stable channel.

comment Windows 7 very slow to startup and restore from hibernate
I was using 1.70. Upgrading to 1.80 fixed hibernation, now it comes back in about 15 seconds. It also blew away my BIOS settings, so that may have been it. Thank you!

Yes, it is a gaming rig, and it'll likely be less hassle to just re-download most of the content. I think I will try a clean install.

Is uploading an ETL file safe?

@Devid What do you mean by "closing the internet"? You mean disconnect my network connection? Yes, Windows Update says everything is up to date. I made a new standard account, it has the same hibernation problem. I disabled both Windows Defender Service and WMI in services.msc, no change.

Looking at the ETL in WPA, there's very little in Services. Under DeviceIO LoginUI.exe, WmiPrvSE.exe and dllhost.exe all take 230 seconds from start to end. I looked into it a bit, seems WmiPrvSE.exe is a common source of problems, but I can't find solutions.

@Devid I've tried disabling MSE to no avail. I'll make another account and try that. What do you mean by "close the internet"?

@magicandre1981 I would also encourage you to post this as an answer. Posting answers in comments side steps the whole StackOverflow system and is stepping on Devid. So far your advice has been good, and it's cramped to get it like this on someone else's answer.
