Booting Up

By john.cb1 ·
I use Windows XP and i am having 2 problems when i boot up.

1. When it boots up it goes into the blue welcome screen and stays in there for about a minute . It is even there when the opening music starts and ends.
Is there anyway that i can speed this up and to stop the delay.

2.When i have my desktop i always have to sign in Microsoft Messenger.
How can i set it that i am automatically sign in.

Your PC probably has a network card or a network port installed. Its probably looking for a non-existant DHCP server. Try setting TCPIP properties of the LAN Connection to a private IP address to remove the delay
e.g. 10.0.0.1, 255.255.255.0

I agree that your PC is looking for a DHCP server. Is your
friewall/router giving address'? try a static ip for faster boot.

For the auto login in Messenger goto Tools and options. Make
sure the checkbox to "Allow Automatic Sign in when connected
to Internet" is checked.

Are you on a home system or a company computer? Do you have a fast connection, like DSL? Yes there are ways to speed up the boot process and you can remove MS messenger if you do not need it. At the welcome screen it is looking for connections to a network or other computers. So it will take time to do this.
