I'm having an issue with a slow start up after a reboot. It takes approximately 14 minutes to load after a start up! Also loading a web page in Internet Explorer takes approximately 1 minute before it fully loads!
I posted in "Am I Infected" in Bleeping Computer. I was told there is no Trogan, Malware or Virius, thanks to the help from Broni! He suggested I post in the Windows forum.
I have a Dell Inspiron 546 with Microsoft Windows XP Professional. Operating System Version 5.1.2600. Processor-- AMD Phenom 9750 Quad-Core Processor. Processor Speed 2.34GHz. 4096 MB of Memory (RAM).
I have a High Speed Internet connection plugged in with Ethernet cable.
Just wondering if you could give me some advice to speed up the start up. I know Windows XP is out dated and any help will discontinue in April of 2014. Should I upgrade to Windows 7 or 8? I would like to try to fix this slow start up problem before I think about an upgrade.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, and thank you for your time!
If you need more information, just let me know!
