removing programs from the startup group. Go to start, run, type in msconfig, click on startup and uncheck all unnecessary programs.
I read about the slow booting up of windows vista in(on?) another
thread on CNET, and I'm having a similar problem, really slow boot up.
I'm using a a rather new Lenovo T60,
processor: Intel core 2 CPU T5600 @ 1.83GHz 1.83GHz
system type:32-bit Operating sys
however as the i fear voiding warranty, other i dont dare to do disable this program and that program at startup, except for windows sidebar, which i already did before this slow boot problem happened.
I took a screenshot of the event viewer but do not know how to post it here, but generally, the problems are:
Windows has started up:
Boot Duration : 131671ms
IsDegradation : false
Incident Time (UTC) : 3/5/2007 6:21:42 AM
Source: Diagnostics performance
event ID: 100
user: LOCAL SERVICE
OpCode: boot information
with variations in the event ID (and boot duration)
the event IDs are : 100, 203, 200 and 400.
another problem is that I dont understand what the OpCode and Event IDs are.
