Speeding up Win2K boot time

By r_bond77 ·
All of a sudden my computer has begun to boot slowly - it seems to take forever (It is not connecting to a network)
Has anyone got any tips for detecting slowdown areas or improving speed???

Speeding up Win2K boot time

There are a number of things that can be slowing your system down. I willing to bet its a software package you installed of late. Some software packages are network aware and want to find other resouces on the network. Many packages start a number of pre-loaded applications, those are the icons that appear in the lower right hand corner of your task bar. Some products attempt to update them selves via the network, Norton Antivirus, Mcaffe ect and may slow the loading of your os. It also can be caused by services that try to start but cannot and eventualy fail to load. You can look in Services for an application thats marked automatic but it is not started. Another trouble shooting tech. you can use is to log the boot up. Backup your boot.ini file and then set the switches so you can create a log file upon bootup.

Hope this was some help.
