    I ran BootVis a couple times. Turns out that the Registry+Pagefile portion of my boot process is taking 16 seconds. Is this normal? A friend of mine told me that this process should only be taking a few seconds on my machine. If thats the case, I would LOVE to shave off some time from this step so any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Here is a portion of my system:
    AMD Athlon 1.4GHZ CPU
    256M micron ram (was 512M but one of my sticks went bad. should have the replacement in a couple days so it will be 512M again)
    C: is my boot drive, no pagefile
    D: is an ibm 7200rpm 60gig drive, pagefile (min. size =128M, max. size - 512M)
    E: no pagefile

    So nobody has any suggestions about how to speed up the Registry+Pagefile (called by BootVis) process in the boot-up process?

    I should be fine with a 128M pagefile considering the 512M of ram.

    try setting the pagefile to min 128, max 128 so it doesn't have to fill with data or such, that might help.
