Slow boot time for Windows XP Pro

\015 After I log into Windows XP Pro, the time it takes to actually load up to my desktop to where I can see icons and use them can take anywhere from 3 to 5 minutes. Obviously a process is running or it's looking for something but I don't know what. Does anybody know of a good process logger/timer that will log what processes are running so that i can diagnose what the PC is hanging on?\015

Answers :

Turn on your laptop and keep pressing F8 to get to the boot menu. Choose safe mode and let it boot up into safe mode.

After you get into safe mode click on the start button in the bottom left hand corner (or the vista logo). on the run line type in "msconfig" (without the ") and press enter.

It will bring up the system configuration utility, from there click on the startup tab and then click on disable all. Do that and this will make sure none of those programs are loading up when you boot up into windows.

Let the laptop reboot and if you can get into windows without any of theh crazy slowdown then you know its something in that startup tab thta is slowing down the computer, from there you can add back what you need and see if any of what you add back is slowing down the computer.

If you do this and the computer is still very slow in booting up then the windows system files are corrupted and then you would need to go into the system restore and set your laptop back to the last date when it was running properly.

If that fails, then you'll need to save your data and wipe out the driver and reinstall the OS and device drivers.

You can do that by using "MSCONFIG"

Click 'start' then goto 'run' and type 'msconfig' then click 'Ok'

That will open the Microsoft System Configuration Utility. You can then disable the unnecessary services and apps
