My computers boot time suddenly doubled and I'm trying to figure out why. Boot time before was 15-20 seconds but now its 50+ seconds. I ran Windows Performance Recorder and I need help analyzing the ETL file. I uploaded it as a zip file to OneDrive.

What I have tried:

  • Boot time slow with a normal / clean / safe boot no difference between them
  • All drivers up to date on my Asus VIII Hero motherboard and installed the latest bios
  • Turned off fast startup in power options
  • Installed all of the latest Windows 10 updates and upgraded to v1803
  • Firmware up to date on my Samsung 960 Pro NVMe SSD and healthy according to CrystalDiskInfo. Benchmark with CrystalDiskMark were good
  • Ran SFC/Scannow showed no issues

My system specs:

  • Motherboard: Asus MAXIMUS VIII HERO
  • Processor: i7-6700k
  • Memory: G.SKILL TridentZ RGB 32GB DDR4 3600MHz
  • Graphics Card: EVGA 1080 Ti FTW3
  • SSD: Samsung 960 Pro NVMe M.2 1TB
  • If you disable cam_v3.exe and Windows Defender what happens then? If you're not sure where cam_v3.exe is being launched from at startup, Autorun could be useful - docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/autoruns – HelpingHand Sep 25 '18 at 20:13
  • I have tried disabling Cam and all other non-microsoft applications with a clean boot and the boot time is slow. I need someone to analyze my WPR ETL file to see what is causing the delay – user3262070 Sep 25 '18 at 23:44
  • Has anyone been able to analyze my ETL file yet? – user3262070 Sep 27 '18 at 8:57
