Workstation service runs SLOW - Part II

Looks like I accidently closed the other thread without resolving my issue.

Appreciate the link you provided earlier. I am quite familiar with it, and have spent the last 2 days analyzing various XP service, and comparing them with numerous other recommendations from other sites.

The problem is that my laptap, this morning was booting in 20 seconds, now it's taking over 2 minutes... So there is definitely a problem somewhere.

Please feel free to comment, as this issue is still open.

Thanks.

Do you have other protocols such other than TCP/IP installed eg IPX/SPX or NetBeui? You only really need TCPIP for comms, removing the other protcols will help or at least change the bindings to services such as Server/Workstation.

Yes. TCP/IP is all I need, and all I have.

This a little late but it is a continuing issue even up to SP3. I have a laptop with both wired LAN and Wireless cards. Most of the time I use a cable modem connection for speed and reliability. Sometimes after switching to WiFi and then back I get the 2 minute boot crap. Without LanManServer started, half my other automatic services don't startup either. Result: Really slow startup. Try this ridiculous sounding fix. Put Wireless Zero service on auto even though you're not going to use wireless. Bingo, fast bootup. It's another quirk brought to you by Microsoft. (like having to disable personal menus to get full drop-down menus in desktop). Now we have a brand new can of worms called Vista. Wheeeeee!, what a ride.....
