The first thing I look at is what is loading up that might slow me down. Since you have run all these scans, maybe its what you have installed. First go to Start/Contol Panel/Add & Remove Programs, and review what you have installed. Maybe you can uninstall some programs you no longer use or need. Second, hit 'windows key + R', when window opens type: "msconfig" without the quotes, hit OK, click on 'Startup tab'. Here you will see everything that starts up when you boot the computer, try unchecking some, or just one at a time, and see if that helps. You will have to reboot, and upon reboot you will get a message saying that you made some changes, of course you did, put a check make in the box on the lower left and continue. Keep in mind that you don't want to turn off your anti-virus or firewall programs, everything else is pretty much fair game. And of course you can always go back and put a check make back on anything that you did "uncheck." Third, did you put any 'special' pictures on your desktop, as a screen saver? If you did, this can also slow down the boot process, if the pictures were not loaded correctly. Meaning these pictures need to be in 'JPEG' form.
Its a start.
Okay my computer i bought as a nice new dell e520 specs:
Windows Xp Media Center
20 Inch Monitor
Upgraded Graphics card - EVGA NVIDIA 8800GTS OC
Some Crappy Motherboard from dell
Now i have no trouble loading a program eg Photoshop, or playing a game at highest graphics but when i fire up my pc and it loads up the nice pretty blue WELCOME screen it take like 5 minutes to load that, then once im in it take some further time loading.. Total of near 10 minutes waiting.. this is extremely absurd.
I have tried numerous scans and things..
I have CA Anti-virs -
Anti Spyware -
Disk Defrags -
CCleaner and a couple of other things nothing has really improved my speed on loading
I am just curious how is it/ or if it is possible to get my pc to load up a bit faster..
Thank you for you time.
