I am not sure if this is the second boot...I went away when the 120second delay shows on the desktop.

OK I have had some where it took a fair while to re-organise the hard drive

You can use the computer whilst it is doing this but be prepared for it to reboot with 30 seconds warning

After this one all reboots should occur within minutes

It is really amazing!  Both rebooting and turning off speed improved. Does this tool apply to any computer with this kind of issue?

 

Thanks a lot, expert!  Thanks for being so patiently helping me.  :thumbsup:
