Good day to all.
Im having a problem with the Windows XP booting up. When I turn on my tower, system information flashes on my screen, then, my asus express gate screen comes up. After I exit that, the mother board screen comes up with bios option, then I get the very slowly moving dotted white line. This line takes 6 to 7 minutes before Windows boots up. Ive unchecked all of the unnecessary items in system startup, and this has not changed a thing. This problem started after a complete format about 3 months ago. Any opinion or a point in the rite direction would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Wood2662.

<<This problem started after a complete format about 3 months ago.>>

Why the complete format?

When things go wrong after a format/clean install...that would make me think of hardware problems, starting with the hard drive itself.

Any pertinent onscreen error messages sinee the format/install...that we should be aware of?

Thanks for your reply.

The format/clean install was done after losing power and being gone for a weekend. After the power loss, I would get a black screen and windows would not boot up. There has been no on screen error messages, and everything about this computer runs fine, except for the long windows boot up. Not saying that electronics dont go bad but, I built this computer one year ago this week.

Thank you,
Jeff

<<Ive unchecked all of the unnecessary items in system startup, and this has not changed a thing.>>

Well...let's have a look at your startups. I'm curious...how did you determine what is "necessary" for startup at boot?

Download Autoruns for Windows: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx

No installation required.

Simply unzip Autoruns.zip file, and double click on autoruns.exe file to run the program.

Go File>Save, and save it as AutoRuns.txt file to know location.

You must select Text from drop-down menu as a file type:

Attach the file to your next reply.

Thanks for your help in this matter Louis.
I rebooted about an hour ago and I got a System Configuration Utility Message stating that start up is in diagnostics?
And it looks like everything is still running during start up. Here is the file that you requested. Thanks again.

I used the start up database provided by Bleeping Computers, and searched all of the .exe's

Ok, thanks. Do me a favor...open Autoruns...click on the tab marked Logon...use the Print Screen key to save to the desktop.

You can then use Irfanview to convert the graphic to a .jpg and then upload that as an attachment.

I suggest...

Uninstalling Groove Monitor or at least removing the check that allows it to run at boot.
http://www.killertechtips.com/2009/05/10/groovemonitor-exe/ AND http://cyberst0rm.blogspot.com/2009/03/how-to-remove-groovemonitorexe.html

Uninstall Spybot or at least disable Tea Timer function, known to be problematical at times. I would replace Spybot with SUPERAntiSpyware, but that's up to you to decide.

I would temporarily remove the Rocket Dock application and see if the delays exist without it.

I would also check Event Viewer for any errors...that might provide clues to troubled applications or Windows functions.

How To Use Event Viewer - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic40108.html

If you want us to review your Event Viewer items, try the following:

Please click the following link, http://images.malwareremoval.com/vino/VEW.exe . This link is a direct download to a tool we are going to use. Download the tool, save it to your desktop.

1.Double click on VEW.exe to start the program. If you recieve an "Open File" security warning, press Run.

2.In the "Select log to query" section, check both Application and System.

3.In the "Select type to list" section, check Error. This is the only item in that group that should be checked, we are not interested in the others.

4.In the "Number or dates of events" section, check Date of events... then enter the From and To dates. From 1 1O 2011 to 21 12 2011.

5.Press the Run button.

When the process completes, it only takes a few seconds..., Notepad will open with a report file named: VEW.txt.

6. Select entire contents of log, press Copy, saving it to the clipboard. Paste the contents of the VEW.txt file, into your next reply.

Louis

Hi Louis,

I hope all of your holidays are going as planned.Sorry I haven't been on in a few days. I've been traveling and hunting.
I just read over your last post, and here is the Vino's Event log. I am getting rid of spybot and downloading superanti spyware
as soon as I post this.

Once again, Thank you for all of your help.

Jeff

That indicates a recurring error with Windows and your removeable storage device.

In general, it seems that you have problems with browser amd browser add-ons...I suggest you disable all but the necessary ones.

Got rid of all of the add-ons, and still took 8 minutes to boot windows. This is a problem that I can live with, it just tests my patience a bit.

Thank you for all of your help. Im still open to suggestions.
