My Windows XP/ HP Pavilion is slow from start-up to user sign-in page... takes @ 5 minutes for that page to load. I recently had the power supply replaced so I know there is enough juice there. Once on Sign in page the wait time for the programs to load is suprisingly minimal. I have done the usual:
Defrag. , disk clean-up, speed disk, Noton System Works, Disk Doctor, Registry Mechanic 3.0dump recycle, Noton Antivirus: no spywear & no viruses found. Registry Mechanic 3.0. Any advise on what is taking so long would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
