I recently had to perform a Windows Repair job on my PC using the Windows Xp cd, all went well except for one thing i noticed that is really bothering me.

The Windows start Welcome screen takes an unusually long time to disapear every time the computer is
switched on or restarted, trust me im not eggsaturating, it really does take a long time!!

This is not the fist thats happened, i once before did a repair and the same thing occured, but I since have re-installed Windows, this time i dont want to do that if possible. So, any clue???

hi , Go to START > RUN > Type MSCONFIG > go to the STARTUP tab > Untick the ones you dont need

for even quicker startup go to MSCONFIG again go on Services then Tick the box Hide all Microsoft Services

Dont forget to Click APPLY then RESTART your pc

if this doesnt work Scan your pc with Anti-Virus software , Ad-aware software and Antispyware software

If you dont Have any Adware or Spyware Protection please do tell me and ill get back to you A.S.A.P

here are the downloads if you dont have any Software for your pc

Anti-Virus - Download Here

Adware - Download Here

Anti-Spyware - Download Here

spybot Search & Destroy - Download Here

If it's only the Windows welcome screen that lags, and takes for ever to load into the desktop then I would highly recommend this fix:

1. Click the "Start" menu.
2. Select "Control Panel".
3. When the Control Panel appears, select "User Accounts".
4. When the "User Accounts" window appears, underneath "Or pick an account to change", click "Change the way users log on or off".
5. Uncheck "Use the Welcome Screen".
6. Click the "Apply Options" button.

How many account names are on this PC? Your basically Removing the Welcome Screen.

NvidiaDude MSCONFIG won't help him with this issue. :tazz:

Again, MSCONFIG will not help with this issue.

When you boot up your machine, Windows XP shows you a "Welcome" screen where you can easily click on your account name. Then, all you need to do is enter your password, (IF REQUIRED) and you're ready to go! THIS IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THAN THE WINDOWS DESKTOP. ALSO, YOU WOULDN'T USE MSCONFIG (AKA system configuration Utility) TO FIX THIS ISSUE EITHER.

Go back and re-read this FOOL:

The Windows start Welcome screen takes an unusually long time to disapear every time the computer is
switched on or restarted
,


He never said it takes for ever to load into the Windows desktop or, even has an issue with the Windows desktop for that matter. On a side note:

If your a geek in training you need some better training seriously.

You can also remove the Windows splash screen (GUI) by adding /noguiboot to the last line of the boot file. What file exactly? boot.ini file needs to be modified. Very simple. Again, this is different than the windows 'welcome screen'and also, different from the windows desktop.

Irongeek & NvidiaDude your bickering is not helping this user in the least bit.

This is your only warning, if you are here to help people, do so, if you have a problem with each other or instructions given by the other party, take them private and keep these topics on track so that our user gets the benefit of good quality help without all the crap.

Any questions, comments, or concerns can be posed to me via PM so as not to muddy up this thread any more than it already is.
