Happy New Year!

I have recently been experiencing V E R R R Y slow start-ups on my laptop. It did not use to be this way. I have not timed it, but it seems like it takes forever to start.

I am not sure there is a direct correlation, but it seems to have slowed down right after I installed Windows XP SP2.

I am running Windows XP Version 5.1 with Service Pack 2 on an IBM laptop with a Pnetium 4 (1.5 GHz) and 560M memory.

Any advice would be most apprecaited.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi :thumbsup:

SP2 comes with additional services, follow the advice and suggestions at Black Viper and reduce some of them.

See if that has any effect.

Hi ashoraka and :thumbsup: to BC.

Here's the link to Black Vipers services config page. It's prob a good idea to defrag your H/Disk too.
