Hello, I am having an extremely slow start up time. Upwards of 2 minutes. I know this is wrong and compared to other machines that are not from Dell, they start up in under a minute, with more or the same amount of programs running at start up.
I have logged out, and then logged back in to see if it is only on a true start up, and it is. Logging in and starting all my programs takes about 30 seconds. I am thinking of just creating a guest account so it takes me to the log in screen and see if that makes a difference, but I want your opinions first. Any ideas?
I am running Windows XP Media w/ SP3 on a Dell XPS 410.
