OK here it is-
Windows XP pro SP2 with a slow start problem.
Total time to start up is 5-10 minutes.
No network access during this time.
Svhost that is loading dnscache seems to be the culprit, as it is using up to 75%cpu and slowly loading into memory up to 26,000 k of info. I can either wait for it to finish loading or I can shut the process down before the computer will function properly.
I have googled it and come up with nothing that seems to work.
What i would like to know -other than the obvious how do I speed it up- is what is it loading and why is it taking so long.
If you need any more info or have any questions please feel free to ask.
Thanks for your time and expertise.
