Hi all, I'm having problems with my laptop, it takes about 6 or 7 minutes to startup. I'm running a Compaq Presario, T2050 Dual Core Processor, 1Gb RAM, 120Gb HD. OS is WINXP SP2 Up until about 2 mths ago, it was starting up as normal. Now it takes ages. I run AVG and Symantec for anti virus, Zone Alarm for firewall. I regularly run Adaware and CCleaner. I have also ran WinUtilities. I have cut down lots of programs that used to open on startup, but still it hasn't improved performance. I get the Welcome screen, then a blank light blue screen sits there for 5 minutes or so before the desktop appears. Can anyone please help speed up my startup? Thanks in advance.
