Whenever I start my PC, it takes a good 3-4 minutes to start. It stays on the Windows screen for a good minute or two, how do I fix this?

Hi nitric...

Slow startups can be caused by any number of things. Do you have a lot of programs that start with Windows? Do you have quite a few icons in the system tray (by the clock)?

That' good! Most folks don't maintain their machines this well.

Run through the suggestions found HERE and see if there's any improvement.
