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???
