OK, I recently had my Dell Laptop crash so I went through the whole reboot process. I then downloaded and installed all the recommended programs for spyware/viruses/etc. After I did all of this, I had to reboot my computer: I timed how long it took to start (from the Dell screen) and it was fully functional after 40 seconds. After I "fixed" the startup registry, I had to reboot again...and it took over 2 minutes! Does anybody know what I could have messed up???

Does it take 2 minutes bootup every time or was it only the 1st time. What is your description of "the whole reboot process" and what is "fixed the startup registry". I'm not familiar with these terms.

I completely redid my computer using the Dell Restore feature...Im not sure on the exact terminology. I used the startup guide here at bleepingcomputers to determine what I needed/didnt need on startup.

I just rebooted it and it took about a minute to start...so maybe I jumped the gun on this thread.

After any System changes are made during a Windows session or to the Operating System generally then these changes are enabled during the NEXT system boot and it does take some time for the process to complete, this is normal.
