Overview of the Windows Boot Process and Logon Hey everyone. This is Sami. Welcome to my course called Troubleshooting Startup and Shutdown Sequences with Sysinternals Tools. We will start with an overview of the Windows boot process and the logon. What we will go through is an overview of how the boot process itself begins and ends up in a user logon. Then we will see how to capture a trace of a boot and a logon process and how to troubleshoot those. Then we will analyze automatically starting processes with Autoruns and Autorunsc. And finally, we will analyze driver and network issues relating to boot processes.
