For the past couple of weeks my computer has had a 15-20 min. boot time which became extremely annoying to me today. I spent about 4 - 6 hours troubleshooting and discovered the following.
SLPMONX by PRODEX TECHNOLOGIES[color=#FF0000] (I googled it and I still do not know what and where it came from)
I used popular programs like, ccleaner, ad aware, hijack this, and other registry utilities.
BUT what helped me the most was I ran msconfig and disabled stuff in the services and startup section and BOOM the computer boot up like new. Then I enabled all of the statup items and again the computer started up beautifully. BTW, under the SERVICES i clicked on HIDE ALL MICROSOFT SERVICES and went through them one by one until I came across above said SLPMONX.
To make a long story short, I eneabled everything EXCEPT SLPMONX and my computer works and runs like before.
I still do not know what it does or how I put it into the services. I would love to know more and possibly remove it only if it does not effect anything.
Like I said, this solution worked for me so please let one of the tech fellas approve this before you do anything.[u]
