    Hi,

    The bootup on my P4, 1600mhz, 256mb RAM, OS: XP Pro is slow. What happens is that everything runs pretty fast until I actually get past the "welcome" sign and onto the desktop. I will have to wait approxiamately 1,5-2 min before I am able to do anything. After waiting approx 2 min the computer checks the floppy drive and msn messenger and Norton AV loads up. But before that happens I am not able to do anything.

    I have run several online AV scans and used Ad-aware 6, Spybot and the free version of TDS-3. As far as these tools go, my system is clean.

    See hijack log below:

    As for the startup log I have found this:

    Windows NT 'Wininit.ini':
    PendingFileRenameOperations: C:\DOCUME~1\Andreas\LOCALS~1\Temp\_iu14D2N.tmp

    I have read somewhere that this might be some leftovers from ZoneAlarm or other programs using WISE installer?

    Any suggestions are appreciated!

    Regards
    Andreas

    Can you account for the boot delay as a scan from TDS-3 ?
    I haven't used it in a while - but that used to be one of the options in it

    Hi,

    I am not using the option to scan before bootup in TDS-3. Another thing I noticed was that if I unplug my network cable and reboot there arent any delays with msn nor Norton. The bootup is fairly fast when Im not connected to the Internet.

    Are there any programs I can run to check/modify bootup, except for HijackThis? I would ofcourse need guidance to modify anything at all ;)

    Regards
    Andreas
