    brand new vaio

    takes FOREVER on the windows splash/loading screen - runs fine etc after this - literally - 4mins or so

    what can i check/disable etc to limit this??

    i ran ERD and checked the autoruns etc - but thats more or less once windows loads, no?

    either way - theres not an excessive amount of things loading

    BootVis should be able to tell you what is slowing down your boot.
