Mine will do that occasionally. I'm not sure what it is... my guess is some driver being loaded hangs. I've been thinking about getting bootvis and running it to see if that will cure it. I'm not worried about it. I'm not getting any disk damage or anything so I'm in no rush to troubleshoot it.

I really don't care how long it takes to boot-up. I'm more concerned about stability while it's running... so far XP has been great for me.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
