    I'm trying the trial version of TI10 with Windows Vista. Everything seems to work fine with the install. I have created backup images and validated those images. But I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing a significantly slow boot up process when restarting Windows? After further researching the issue on my computer, it appears to be hanging for +/- 3 minutes when loading timntr.sys. Once it gets past that, the boot process continues normally and starts Windows. Has anyone else experienced this issue and have a workaround/solution? I have left a message with Acronis customer service but also wanted to try here with other users. Your help is much appreciated, as I'd like to purchase and use this product if I can get this worked out.

    Thanks.

    I haven't noticed Vista taking longer to boot since installing TI 10.

    Thanks for the reply. It may just be something strange with my setup or a software conflict. I tried last night using the freeware Autoruns to disable the loading of the timntr.sys driver. That definitely solved the issue of the initial delay in the boot sequence, but then Windows would blue screen as it tried to open the GUI and reset the computer. So I'm at a loss as to why I'm having this issue when I can't find anyone else on here who seems to also have the problem. Oh well, that's the way it goes sometimes.

    Thanks again for confirming that it works with your setup. I've obviously got something unique with mine that is causing problems.

    Vista needs some serious work/tweaking on its boot process. I have seen different things slow it down considerably. My external WD Hard Drive cause a major delay in the boot process. I actually had to take out the hard drive of its case and put it in another one I bought at CompUSA and now it works fine. The thing is there is that I shouldn't have had to do that. I have noticed some networking services cause a slow down or delay when Windows loads. I had to disable two servies; Workstation and Server services in order for Windows and startup items to start up normally. Those two services is what allows me to share files/printers and access files/printers. I was even on the phone with Microsoft and they couldn't figure it out either. So believe me when I say that Windows Vista needs to serious work on its boot/Windows loading process.

    For me, booting is quick, but turning off the computer is excruciatingly slow.
