On booting XP Home I get loading personel settings, about 30 seconds, then a blue screen,(the blue screen is my desktop, I don't have sreensavers or any background. Cubase SX3.1 runs better without XP Stuff) about 2.45 seconds to the desktop. I have enabled verbosestatus to 1 in the registry, and on boot I notice I have WGALOGON.DLL for about 30 seconds, I can't see what is taking 2/3 minutes to load after the personal settings. :whistling: I have the bare min services, I have startup program only one wireless cons. My system is AMD 64x2 Dual core Processor 4200. 1.5 gig ram :blink: Please.

I have used XP home long back, still see if you can do this.

Go to START>RUN
In the run box type MSCONFIG. That will open a new window. Check the STARTUP tab of that window, and you can find a lot of things booting with your PC making the boot process pretty slow. Just uncheck those entries which you think you do not need and APPLY>Reboot. This should reduce your startup time.

If you are unsure which ones to disable, let me know. I shall try to help you in some other way.
