I just recieved a new laptop from work, the computer works fine and fast once XP Pro is loaded but after I login it can take upto 5 mins.+ to load so XP Pro is functional. I used BootVis and noticed that fltmgr.sys is a driver delay over the entire boot process. I am eager to fix this so I don't have to vegetate while the computer reboots on windows frequent reboots. Please let me know if I can offer anymore info.

Thanks in Advance!!

This can be caused if you have a mapped network drive that is no longer available.

Thanks, I disconnected network drives and tried some other XP tricks to optimize speed. Long delays on restart and boot still, XP pops-up fast after the login is entered and the icons show quickly. It is the services loading that take 2-3 min. to load, the hard drive works hard before the first IconTray pops-up. For the number of apps I am loading on startup the wait time is unreasonable.

Thanks

Check your devices in Device Manager (Start > Run > type "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter). What you're looking for is any X, ! or ? symbols.

First, check what Processes are loaded in Task Manager.
Next, check what services are loading by using the services.msc applet
Then check this website for information on those services: http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm
Disable the one's that aren't needed, set the one's that you aren't sure of to Manual.

Great thanks for the reply, I actually found a great!! site for tweaking XP, I disabled a number of services, but disabling Indexing on the Hard Drivews seemed to fix the problem.

Thanks Again.

Indexing is a known system function that acts that way, http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=d...mp;aq=f&oq=
