windows takes around 20 seconds on the "Windows is starting Up" screen just before the login screen appears and another 20 seconds at the "Windows is preparing to shutdown" screen after i choose shut down.. the start up thing is as if windows is searching for other pcs on my network, but it used to boot up fine about a week ago before i reformatted everything, plus ive tried disconnecting all netowrk devices and then trying - still i get the 20 odd second lag on both start up and shutdown.
now i ran bootvis and turns out the file mrxsmb.sys is causing the 30 second delay. During this time, theres no hard disk or CPU activity. This is a networking file, any idea what i can do with it or how i can stop it from hanging my system each time on startup and shutdown ?
