Having some very slow start up problems and am trying to optomise the start up programs to see if it speeds things up a bit.
From turning on the pc, it takes roughly 2 minutes or so to get to the windows password screen.
When i enter my password, it then takes a further 2 minutes or so to get to a workable desktop. In fact , , i wouldnt mind getting rid of the password page as well as its only me in the house using the pc so i dont need a password at all !!
When i have entered msconfig to access the start up programs i have optomised it as best as possible but its still very slow booting up.
I have clicked on the propertie tag on the sidebar, , but to my suprise, the "start sidebar at start up " box is already unchecked indicating that it shouldnt even be starting up at all until i click to open it up, , , very strange. Once i get to windows screen, , its the sidebar that takes all the time to load ,before i get to a workable enviroment , so i want to prevent it from loading at all and would rather start it myself once the pc is up and running.
Any ideas anyone
PS: My pc is clean from virus, malware etc , memtest shows memory is all fine , all HDDs are fine and other than that, the pc is in good shape without any other errors , , its just this slow boot up and shutdown thats bugging me.
Its a brand new pc that i built myself and is only a little over 3 weeks old. For the first 2 weeks, boot up and shutting down used to take less than 30, 40 seconds each, , , its taking 3 times that now.
Anyone have any ideas about the sidebar start up problem ? ? ?
