    bootvis is supposed to be built into XP, but I have used it a time to help things alone. It helps sometimes.

    Sorry XP is supposed to optomize itself for a fast startup.
    Thats why you cant get bootvis from MS.

    My fualt. Bootvis was a tool that MS used to learn where the hang ups where located. Even though XP is suppose to do this itself, bootvis does still help out.

    Start > run > "msconfig"
    then go to start up. Try to remove useless programs that you don't really use (ex. a printer software or something that you dont use usually) because the icons in your system tray decrease the speed of your pc =/ .
