Slow Vista: hundreds of warnings, errors and critical issues?
Hello,

I did a clean install of Vista Ultimate on a separate partition and am
booting Vista 32-bit with XP Pro 32-bit. No problems with the booting and I
only use the XP partition when using my high-speed scanner and Kofax VRS Pro.
The rest of the time I am on Vista. I have Office 2007 Ultimate on the
Vista partition.

It takes some 15-25 seconds to open such programs as MS Word (and another
10-15 seconds before I can start typing into Word), Access and Excel.
Outlook is also quite slow. Internet Explorer is as slow as Word and when I
try to right click a link in IE, it takes 4 or 5 seconds…every single time
(at least it is consistent: I have timed approximately 65 such right clicks
and the result is always 4 or 5 seconds). Many of my programs will show,
“Not Responding” on the title bar at least a few times every time I use the
software for more than 15 minutes (eventually the software
continues/responds, but it takes several seconds, during which I am
frustrated and twiddling my thumbs). All this occurs whether the Indexing
Service is still indexing or even when it claims the indexing is complete (I
limited the Index Searching to less than ½ the extensions which are marked
for indexing with the default settings, including no indexing XML files,
which helped sped up the computer a lot).

I am listing below a few of the errors I have so that anyone searching the
forum can come across a potential solution.

I have all updated drivers (I check for new ones weekly—it takes more than 2
hours each time).

My system specifications are as follows:
Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+
4 GB DDR400 (PAE enabled)
GeForce 6800 GS (256 MB GDDR3)
250 GB Western Digital internal SATA HDD
500 GB SeaGate external SATA HDD

My questions are as follows: how do I find out how to fix these errors on
Vista?

Does anyone have a fix for any of the errors listed below or mentioned above?

Please do not respond that I need to go back to XP. I am committed to Vista
and find a lot of good therein, but it is incredibly slow with running
programs which ran much faster in XP Pro.

Thank you,
edsager

When I look into the Event Viewer, I see such recurring Critical errors as
the following:
(1) This device took longer to initialize, resulting in a performance
degradation in the system start up process:
File Name : STORAGE\VolumeSnapshot\HarddiskVolumeSnapshot1
Friendly Name : Generic volume shadow copy

I also see recurring Errors as the following:

(1) The Trend Micro Protection Against Spyware service hung on starting.

(2) Initialization failed because the driver device could not be created.
Use the string "0015F2CA698C" to identify the interface for which
initialization failed. It represents the MAC address of the failed interface
or the Globally Unique Interface Identifier (GUID) if NetBT was unable to
map from GUID to MAC address. If neither the MAC address nor the GUID were
available, the string represents a cluster device name.

(3) IRQARB: ACPI BIOS does not contain an IRQ for the device in PCI slot 13
[or 12 or 11], function 0. Please contact your system vendor for technical
assistance.

And finally, recurring Warnings:

Re: Slow Vista: hundreds of warnings, errors and critical issues?
Wow...that's a big laundry list of problems. Since XP works fine (I
assume?), then it's not a BIOS issue. From the shadow copy error, I'm
thinking its some sort of disk problem. When you installed Vista to this
partition, did you create it fresh or use an existing one? Primary or
extended? NTFS, I hope? Or if the Vista partition is on a second drive, is
there a configuration issue with that drive maybe? How is your drive(s) set
up?

Re: Slow Vista: hundreds of warnings, errors and critical issues?
Hello Dana Cline!

It is a laundry list which is very huge...I have shared only a few of the
errors; many more exist.

XP does work fine.

To dual-boot, I set up my computer according to the instructions given on
http://techrepublic.com.com/. I did a clean install of XP Pro, downloaded
all the relevant updates and then partitioned the disk with PartitionMagic.
I then installed a full, clean version of Vista Ultimate onto the 2nd
partition.

Both XP Pro and Vista are NTFS.

The XP Pro partition is: Healthy (System, Active, Primary Partition) 47.33 GB
The Vista partition is: Healthy (Boot, Page File, Crash Dump, Logical Drive)
185.55 GB
External HDD: Healthy (Primary Partition). 465.76 GB

I am wondering about the VisioCore error in particular because I recently
uninstalled Visio Pro 2003 and installed Visio Pro 2007. I now have only
Office 2007 products...no earlier versions of Office.

Any help to solve any of the errors would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
edsager

Re: Slow Vista: hundreds of warnings, errors and critical issues?
About all that comes to mind is to install Vista again, as a clean install.
Test it to make sure the problem hasn't reappeared. Then install your apps,
one by one, testing between each to see if the behavior returns.

If the fresh install with no apps installed has this problem, then I'm not
sure what to tell you except try to get a replacement DVD because this just
isn't normal...

Another dual-booter had some performance issues, which were resolved when he
defragged his Vista partition from XP. I have no idea why this would work,
but you might give it a try...

Re: Slow Vista: hundreds of warnings, errors and critical issues?
Hello Again Dana Cline!

I have already gone the route of reinstallation for other reasons and I
simply do not have the time to do it again. I truly wish all my applications
and hardware were 64-bit compatible because all my stuffs which worked with
Vista 64 ran very fast and without problems. Vista 32-bit is a different
story...

I will try the route of defragmenting from my XP hard drive.

Thank you,
edsager

Re: Slow Vista: hundreds of warnings, errors and critical issues?
Hello again,

I did the defrag of Vista from XP and I have fewer errors and Vista is
faster. It makes me wonder if Vista's defrag is not so good. I also went
into the registry and eliminated all references to Office11. This caused
Visio Pro 2007 to reinstall automatically (or repair). I now no longer have
the VisoCore errors. I still get print errors and netbt errors and some ASPI
errors, but nowhere near as many as before.

I must admit my faith in Vista has been shaken today when I worked with a
few programs on XP Pro. Everything started instantly: no waiting involved.
Maybe I should go back to using XP Pro for most things and wait for SP1 for
Vista. I do like Vista very much, but the waiting (especially for Dragon
NaturallySpeaking Pro Legal 9.5) is almost too much.

Thanks,
edsager

Re: Slow Vista: hundreds of warnings, errors and critical issues?
Hello once more,

OK, I timed the opening of several programs, once in Vista Safe Mode and
once in Normal Mode.

Here are the results:

Safe Mode:

Dreamweaver 8: 5 seconds;
Fireworks 8: 14;
Flash 8: 11.
Then I closed all three and tried them in reverse:
Flash 8: 11 seconds;
Fireworks 8: 9;
Dreamweaver 8: 5.

Then I waited about 90 seconds and tried the following, closing each program
after opening:

CCleaner: 2 seconds;
PaperPort 11 Standard: 15;
Acrobat 8 Pro: 6;
ABBYY FineReader Pro: 10.

The same was done in Normal Mode (except that I had to wait at least 150
seconds between opening programs so that the CPU usage reduced to at least
60% used--I tried to wait until at least 10% was free, but that entailed
waiting 3 to 5 minutes or more):

Dreamweaver 8: 32 seconds;
Fireworks 8: 55;
Flash 8: 60.
Then I closed all three and tried them in reverse:
Flash 8: 80 seconds;
Fireworks 8: 64;
Dreamweaver 8: 31.

Then I waited between 90 to 300 seconds (for the reasons described above)
and tried the following, closing each program after opening:

CCleaner: 5 seconds;
PaperPort 11 Standard: 86;
Acrobat 8 Pro: 13 the first opening and 8 the second time;
ABBYY FineReader Pro: 14.

I noticed an instance of svchost.exe is almost constantly running, with CPU
usage hovering from 13% to 50%. This instance seems to be connected with the
following services:
Windows Audio Endpoint Builder;
Human Interface Device Access;
Network Connections;
Program Compatibility Assistant Service;
Superfetch;
Distributed Link Tracking Client;
Desktop Windows Manager Session Manager; and
Diagnostic System Host.

Anyone got any ideas as to how to get my Vista installation working faster?

A very tired thanks to you all,
edsager

Re: Slow Vista: hundreds of warnings, errors and critical issues?
I'm glad the defrag helped some, but your numbers are just weird - I have no
idea why it would take so long to fire up apps. If you haven't tweaked any
advanced settings about background versus foreground processes.

Take a look at TweakVI and see if it offers any improvement.

You need to do some very basic troubleshooting. If possible remove the drive
with XP on it. Make sure you have the latest BIOS for your motherboard.
Physically disconnect all external devices except a keyboard and mouse. Run
a memory testing program for at least five hours. Do a clean install of
Vista creating the partition and formatting it from within the install. Do
not use an existing partition. Do not install anything other than Vista. No
drivers, no programs, nothing. The only drivers you should install are hard
drive controller drivers and only if needed to recognise the drive during
the install. How does Vista run? Any errors? Yes, diagnose and fix the
problems. No, start installing drivers testing after every driver. Once you
have all the drivers installed then start installing programs, again testing
after every program is installed. There are no shortcuts. You have to start
at the beginning and work through things one at a time until you discover
what is causing the problem. From the plethora of errors you are receiving
you have installed quite a few programs and drivers. Any one of them or a
combination of them could be at fault. Once you have figured out what is
causing the problem you can reinstall the drive with XP and set up the dual
boot.

Re: Slow Vista: hundreds of warnings, errors and critical issues?
Hello Kerry Brown!

I can certainly see the benefit of doing what you suggest; however, my main
job is not working on my computer--my main job is my real job. I simply do
not have time to go through all the troubleshooting ideas you have mentioned.
These problems have seriously hampered my ability to do my work.

Also, I have seen the error logging and performance information in Vista,
and it is quite impressive. I am unsure why the problems which plague my
computer cannot be diagnosed and fixed via those means. What you are
suggesting is simply not feasible for anyone who has a job and needs their
computer to work. It appears that from what you suggest, it will take
several dedicated days to complete the analysis and installations, not to
mention downloading updates and looking to make sure I have the latest
drivers. I simply do not have that time and believe there must be some other
way of troubleshooting.

As I stated in an earlier post, I have gone the route of reinstallation
(though I did not do the analysis after every installation; by the way, what
specifically do you mean by, "start installing programs, again testing after
every program is installed?") several times for a variety of reasons
(including some of the errors involved here) since acquiring Vista some 6
weeks ago. Fortunately, I never activate Vista, so I do not need to haggle
with MS. Also, any future installations of Windows XP Pro will take another
telephone call to MS. Again, more time.

I am not looking for shortcuts, but I am attempting to avoid long-cuts. Why
can I not use the error logging and performance information in Vista to find
the problems and fix those rather than cut out everything good and bad and
simply start over...again?

I hope when people give advice on these boards (which I am EXTREMELY
grateful for the assistance) they take into account the real-world
implications and conditions. I realize the end result of your suggestions
may eventually save me more time than what I am expending right now, but we
do not know that is the case and I have to balance a massive disruption in my
work over days vs. moderate slowdown (relatively speaking) by staying with
Vista vs. acute, mild slowdown by going back to XP Pro for most of my
computing needs.

I have installed quite a few programs and hardware with drivers, but I do
not think I have installed more hardware with drivers than many (if not most)
others.

Vista worked great in Safe Mode. If it is not realistic to use the error
logging and performance information in Vista to solve the problems, first, I
will be surprised because at the Vista Launch Event in Seattle, WA I was told
that most "issues" with Vista can be diagnosed and a fix found via checking
the error logging and performance information in Vista; but second, I can
unplug all devices except my keyboard (I will even use an older USB keyboard
instead of my new MS bluetooth), uninstall drivers and then reinstall and
check Vista's performance. Beyond that (which I can do in a day), I can see
nothing else to do to keep using Vista.

Thank you both for your responses and any help you can give as to how to use
the error logging and performance information in Vista to troubleshoot and
fix the problem, or whether you believe it would be fruitful to remove
hardware & drivers and reinstall them one by one, all comments would be
greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
edsager
