A few results form the tweaking that I have done to aid in any desision.
megabites in memory on boot: 108mb
C:\documents and settings: 8mb
E:\program files: 524mb
D:\ 508mb <== this is where I moved My Documents too.

I was only interested in the layout.ini, I just wanted who ever answered to know what my computer was like.

Have you rebooted your PC, after you used the command to re-create the layout.ini?

like to add that I had a look throught a backup made by Norton Ghost and in that it was 133KB in that backup, so 7kb is a huge reduction in size. And also nothing it geting made in the prefetch folder which is very odd.

The small one that I have makes no mention of the documents and setting folder, is this normal? I had it in the old one.

Was your Task Scheduler Service enabled, when you ran the command ?

As i said in Post#9, the layout.ini sometimes also conatins info. abou programs that are un-installed and these simply take extra place in the layout.ini file.
So even the layout.ini file has to be cleared after sometime.
And to aviod the slow boots till it is re-created, you can use the commnad in Post#9 to immediately re-create it.
The first command wrks but the second does not??
