Can anyone offer any ideas as to why my computer has all of a sudden decided to take much, much longer to bootup.
It now takes about 200% longer than it used to, for no apparent reason. Ive run Ewido, spybot, Ad Aware, Avast, panda, trendmico and haven't found anything, althoug there a couple of items locked in the Avast quarantine chest.
I have an Intel Motherboard and at bootup previoulsy a screen with a few words came up for about 3secs, now it appears for about 14/15secs.
XP home with SP2
Hard drive 80gig (about) 15% used)
