I have a problem with a PC that takes to long to boot up, but it seriously takes ages to boot up.
Windows logo with loading bar - ages, little less takes up the startup.
It is an Office PC, what means nothing special is installed, only Windows XP (genuine), MS Office 2003 (genuine), adobe reader, NOD 32 and that should be all.
So I scanned it with eset, malwarebytes etc.. found some nasty stuff but I deleted it all and its clean. But no help from it.
I also deleted "prefetch" directory content and done Defragmention of the drive.
Now I have cloned the hard drive to another one and windows boots normally, that is - fast
My questions and major problem is, Why its not booting normally on main drive ?
I done some scans and diagnostics like: HDD Life, some Crystal something and HDD Scan, now, they are not showing any BB's or Reallocated Sectors.
Main drive is Hitachi 640GB, cloned drive was Western Digital 250GB.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
