I have had some issues with boot times. Ive looked for any malware/virus that may be the issues but its not. Ive killed all the startup jazz. is there anything else I can do? I remember using bootvis on windows xp but i havent found anything that works as well as bootvis did.

Hmm, is the machine slow when first opening other applications as well? Have you tested the hard drive? Seatools is pretty good for testing to see if your hard drive is having issues. If it tests out ok, how long has it been since you defragged the hard drive? Is the hard drive near maximum capacity? Check your motherboard for blown/bloated capacitors. Run memtest86 to test your RAM for issues. If you are sure it's not a software related issue, then obviously my guess is something is amiss with your hardware.

My harddrive is almost full...does that effect boot times?

If a hard drive becomes completely full you can run into issues, and it can take longer to retrieve data yes. I would also test it to make sure it's not starting to die on you as well.

The Windows partition...is the only partition on a hard drive...that is affected by being full.  Windows needs at least 15% of the C: partition to be free space on the partition in order for Windows to run as it should.

 

If a drive has nothing but the Windows partition using all the hard drive space...then the partition/drive spacing becomes an issue.
