Microsoft has released a new HotFix for Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2, which fixes slow start-up times in certain scenarios.
If you have a computer running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2, which is connected to a high resolution monitor and if the default dpi display setting is set to a value other than 96 dpi, you may find that the computer has an unexpectedly slow startup time.
This issue may occur when the default dpi display setting in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2 is set to a value other than 96 dpi for a high resolution monitor.
In this scenario, Windows 7 may start really slow after a change is made to the default dpi display setting. Then, the computer has an unexpectedly slow start-up time every other time that the computer is started.
To determine whether you must apply this hotfix, check the setting of the Make text or other items larger or smaller option on your computer. To do this, follow these steps:
– Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
– Click Hardware and Sound.
– Click Make text or other items larger or smaller.
– If the setting is set to Smaller – 100% (default), you do not have to apply this hotfix.
If the setting is set to a different value, you may have to apply this hotfix.
