Hi all,

Theres a problem Ive been having that is just peeing me off now lol After I boot up my computer (which is fine) I type in my windows password to log in and it takes absolutely ages to loads up ! It does this everytime and I do nto get any errors.

I use kaspersky antivirus and sygate personal firewall. I have scanned with spybot a number of times and also cleared out my startup of any thing I dont want, by doing msconfig in RUN.

Can anyone please help me with this - I dont want to have to reinstall the whole OS just for this !

Thanks people :tazz:

Try M$ Bootvis.
Install it.
Open Boovis, in the menu bar, Click Trace->Optimize System.
Follow instructions.

Gave that a go, but it hasnt shown any sign of improvments :tazz:

What exactly happens is that I type in my password , it freezes for some time WITHOUT the hourglass, then the 3/1 floppy buzzes then the hour glass comes up and it goes into windows more or less immediately.

Hope thats clearer ! thanks ;)

Some antivirus programs have an option to check the floopy drive at startup and\or shutdown.
Can u go through ur Antivirus program's settings thoroughly.

you could also speed it up more by getting rid of some of your startup programs, goto start>run and type msconfig then click startup tab, there you can check/uncheck what programs you want to boot up windows with.

Neo,
If read the user's first post (post#1). He had already reduced the useless startup processes.
