My boot takes over 2 minutes, and looking in ntbtlog.txt shows more than 5800 lines, and the normal 257 lines (as in my other Win2000 computer with a  boot time of aprox 60 seconds) are repeated more than 50 times.


I'd like to figure this out without having to re-install Win2000.  Does anyone have a suggestion for understanding and troubleshooting this.

Sorry for the late reply  :hello:


The log file is appended as log as boot logging is enabled. The problem is not the boot log being so long its the problems it is listing. Rename the old ntbtlog.txt to ntbtlog.old.txt and reboot the computer. Press F8 during boot and select the boot log option. The new log will show what errors if any are found. I would also suggest running some scans with Tdskiller, and Malwarebytes to rule out an infection.

Yu can Start, Run, type in MSConfig;  2000 may not have that command.  Copy it from wherever and onto your c: drive.  Once you run Msconfig, go to start up tab at the top and disable all, apply it and restart.  you may have too many programs starting in memory.  Email me and I can send you the msconfig file.  Good luck.
