More Startup Problems.....

OK, when I start XP, the desktop pops up with no problem. I used bootvis, and so I did see an improvement in the time it takes to boot up. However, its a good 60 seconds or so before Im able to do anything.
I wonder if maybe there is some unseen (and most likely useless) program booting up, and causing this delay. Ive fixed the services menu, so the useless stuff doesnt start up.
I wonder what the problem is.
If it matters, heres my specs:
Sony VAIO PCG-FXA33 laptop
128 MB RAM
900mhz AMD Duron
15GBHD

I personally think its a driver not initializing and causing the hangup ....

OK youve used Bootvis .. did you see the "Driver Tracking" option ?
The graph should show you the issue

Run that and it tells you what the Driver is and how long it is taking ....

Its a good help

I hope it helps you out ......

A kinda risky idea but along with running msconfig you can also open Services and change all your services to manual. Then reboot and do some of the things you normaly do on your computer. (i.e. browse the internet, play a game, open up some apps)

Then open services again and everything you see that has "Started" set to automatic instead of manual.

This way no unnesscessary services load each time you boot windows.

Just make sure you leave the Windows Audio service on automatic or you wont have any sound. ;)
