I have WinXP pro on a AMD Athlon 1.2 Ghz with 512 Megs of RAM and a 60 Gig HD NTFS format. My computer used to boot in 30 secs. But one day, it decided to boot in 1 min or so; it's been like that since then. I decided to reformat my HD and reinstalled the OS, worked fine for 2 weeks and then again it decided to load slowly, I didn't install any new software on it. I tried to use bootvis, but it's not helping. Anybody got an idea why it would decide to slow the boot down by itself? Thanx for the help guys.
