Yesterday I ran the diagnostic Driver Verifier on my Win 7 Pro system...

It didn't result in any BSODs, and I thought I had disabled it afterwards.

Now It takes up 10-15 minutes for my OS to fully boot up. Earlier I did a Verifier /reset command at Start--but it still takes eons to boot up. I did a Verifier /query from a command prompt; a lot of driver info flashed by, but I couldn't discern if Verifier was actually off, on not.

Also, applications take forever to load, especially those in the Taskbar.

How do I get out of this dilemma?

This video is actually for Windows 10 but most of these commands will work in Windows 7. Try this:

Thanks, but playing videos right now cause my system to crash (TSG is helping me with the BSOD issue). Is there a written version of clearing the cache in Win 7 around?

Like I said, the majority of the commands in this video will work for Windows 7. Other than the Edge commands, and that you may need to find "Disk Cleanup Utility" in Control panel instead of it coming up when you type it in the search box. The rest of the commands will work. If you follow the steps in the video, you cache will be cleared and you will have a lot more space and should help your speed.

I did run Disk Cleanup and also reduced the number of Start-up programs--but neither had any noticeable effect. OS takes 10 minutes
to boot up, applications take forever to load, and my mouse frequently freezes.

No, it seems to do a normal boot-up time in Safe mode.

Will test with Clean Boot shortly.

Also, note I posted in another thread a few days ago about constant
BSODs; still trying to kluge that--but super-slow OS getting priority
for now.

Thanks, I am getting help on the BSODs.

But I don't mind running the SD program as an additional diagnostic.

I can post it on the BSOD thread for consistency.

OK. Thanks for your initiative.

This, and the quick response times to posts is what leaves
other forums in the dust compared to TSG.

Have you tests your hard drive? It doesn’t look like the diag.bat file ran correctly. Please try again and make sure the SystemDiagnostics folder contains all the files in the list 1-8 above.
