I'm currently using Windows XP Pro on Twinhead 12DL. Lately, my laptop is starting to boot slowly (during Windows bootscreen). I've tried deleting useless files, cleaning my registry and scan for spywares but the problem doesn't go away. Here's the details of my laptop:-

Intel Centrino, Pentium 1.73GHz
512MB DDR RAM
60GB HDD
Wireless LAN
Graphic Shared Memory support up to 128MB

Does it have anything to do with my boot file?
