It has been taking about 10 to 15 minutes to boot up completely and everytime i want to run an application or click from application to application it takes way to long (about a min. or two).
what i can think is that lot of programs run by default at startup.
so you have to disable programs which you won't need to run automatically
to do this go to start-->run-->type msconfig
then select startup tab and uncheck all programs which you dont want to start automatically
and then click ok and then reboot computer
now you can see the difference
please let me know whether this helps you or not.

Kinda sounds like it could be a transfer mode issue. It sure wouldn't hurt to check.
Right click on My Computer and choose "Properties". Click the "Hardware" tab and then the "Device Manager" button. Expand (click +) IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers.
Right click on the Primary IDE channel, choose "Properties", then click the "Advanced Settings" tab. List the Current Transfer Mode for each device shown for this channel.
Right click on the Secondary IDE channel, choose "Properties", then click the "Advanced Settings" tab. List the Current Transfer Mode for each device shown for this channel.

Yes, AlErt. I cleared all the programs from starting up when windows starts and it helped a good amount i guess. Still runs a little slower then what i think it should be though.
ok its good that it running somehow fast now we have to do some more cleaning
now go to run-->type temp
it would open folder of temporary files so just delete unnecessary files .

Right click on Secondary IDE channel and choose "Uninstall"...accept the change.
Reboot and Windows will reinstall the channel and any devices assigned to it...you will then be asked to restart your machine...do so.
Does the machine start and run faster after the second reboot?

It should reset to dma, where it should be.
The pio mode will be slowing your computer down.
You can uninstall all cd/dvd drives and they will reinstall with fresh settings, hopefully dma settings.
I thought I'd add that, wannabe1, because this is probably a big part of the problem.
And it doesn't seem to be a priority to the user.
If that pio device is a master drive then reformatting and reinstalling is the only way to reset it to my knowledge. If there's another way I'd like to hear, thanks.
If it's a slave drive it can be uninstalled and reboot to reinstall it automatically like the cd/dvd drives.
Just my 2 cents.....

tlittle08...Go back to the Secondary IDE channel in Device Manager and see if Device 1 will allow you to change the Transfer Mode to "DMA if Available" using the drop down menus. Apply the change (if you can make it) and reboot. Check the channel again and see if the setting held. You might try uninstalling that channel again, too...then reboot twice.
cmpm's suggestion is also a good way to do this, though it will only address the device that you uninstall and not the channel itself.
