Would you post me a HJT StartupList log? To do this, start HiJackThis and click on "Do a system scan only". On the following screen, click on "Config..." and then click on "Misc Tools". Click on "Generate a StartupList log", copy the log and post it here for us.

Ok...let's start with this...Uninstall the Zone Alarm firewall using Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel. Then make sure the Windows Firewall is turned on (Control Panel > Security Center > firewall link at the bottom)

Then let's uninstall the google toolbar and the google desktop search applications also using Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel.

Reboot and see if it's a little faster.

Yes, please do. Two firewalls running together will give you problems. The googles you can reinstall later. I'm just cutting through the clutter. We'll be stopping some start-up apps, too. That'll be next. :tazz:

I did like you asked. Google desk search, google toolbar, and zonealarm are gone. i turned on windows alarm and rebooted. I must say, no change yet in the slow startup. Notice how long this whole process took me...still i'm on broadband, and my CPU is 1.70 GHz and 256 MB. i've used up only about 20% of my hard drive. please help me buddy...i'l buy you a beer:)

Now...can you get me a screenshot of the startup programs in the config window?

Click Start then Run and type msconfig and press "Ok". Click the "Start up" tab. Press Alt and PrtScrn at the same time. Then open Paint ( Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint) and click "Edit" and then "Paste". Save the image as Jpeg and post it here for me.

I've got to step out for a little bit, but should be back within the hour.
