PLEASE DO NOT TRY THIS UNTIL ONE OF THE TECHS HAVE OK'D IT - IT WORKED FOR ME MAYBE BY CHANCE

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]

Thanks

Your "fix" is merely a band-aid, its not a complete fix. msconfig should only be used by folks who know what they are doing.

As for your unknown service, I suggest you submit a HiJackThis log for one of our experts to take a peek at and see if we cant find a more permanent solution to your problem.
