I'm hoping for some assistance on an issue my brother is having with his laptop. He brought it to me cause it was "booting slow" and he'd gotten a blue screen of death once. At boot up, it spends about 3 minutes at a black screen with a grey bar going across the bottom, then moves onto the windows loading screen. It proceeds to spend about 15 minutes on this screen, before loading windows. Once it loads, it's a little slow, but some general clean up should take care of that. All virus runs are clean, and he said nothing else abnormal has occured with it. Any ideas as to why this may be booting so slow?
BTW...He is running windows xp pro sp 2
