I don't think this problem is anything to do with my other problem but it might be.
Basically, the problem is Startup takes ages... we're talking about 3 minutes on the desktop before anything works.
Abolute Startup monitor - asmon.exe
hp psc 100 series - hpohmr08.exe
iTunes helper - iTunesHelper.exe
Kodak Easyshare Software - EasyShare.exe
Nero Filter Check - NeroCheck.exe
NvCplDaemon - NvCpl.dll
NvMedia Center - NvMctray.dll
Registry Cleaner Scheduler - RCScheduler.exe
Speedtouch USB Diagnostics - dragdiag.exe
SunJavaUpdateSched - jusched.exe
VirusScan Online - mvcsshld.exe
VSOCheckTask - mcmnhdlr.exe
From this, and using "Absolute Startup," I have seen that all of these are needed.
Most are McAfee related and thus essential, but the problem exists.
System tray icons takes ages to fully appear. In the system tray are;
My modem diagnostics,
"Safely Remove Hardware", and
McAfee. in particular, takes ages to appear. it's there to begin with, but then the VirusScan is disabled, then Enabled once more before any other icon can appear.
I've tried re-formatting, but the same happens.
*edit* Forgot to mention, shutting down my computer also takes an age.
Could this be down to my Hard Drive??
