    about a month ago someone had replied to one of my posts. Which one i cant recall, but anyways he had a bunch of useful links in his sig including a way to reduce the time it takes to bootup your computer. I guess my question is who would this be as he also had a bunch of other things i was meaning to try out or i guess just tell me how i can reduce the time it takes to boot up

    ty in advance

    Lengthy bootup times can be a symptom of many things, some not so good. When some programs are installed, they often include themselves in the startup menu. So if you can do without an app running in the background, not being used, disable it. Here's a multipurpose Cleaner, it also happens to be free :) Edit; And from Finland.

    Also a good Defragg daily or weekly, will definetely speed things up. This defragger maker has a freebie somewhere on their site 'cause I have it. Version 4.0 pro.

    Last but not least, alot of people like CrapCleaner, it's also very easy to use and also very free.

    The not so good thing with slow reboots, is viruses, malware and all the other net nasties. If you need some A/V or want more, try AfterDawns A/V thread, there's free stuff also.

    Cheers.

    @Imac222..............
    Look just above the AfterDawn logo, at the top of this page. See "My Account", with an underline? Click on it. Then in the next page that opens, scroll down, and under Functions you'll see "See list of your forum posts". Click on that and you'll see every thread listed, with every post you've made, since you joined AfterDawn. You should be able to find that guys post, you mentioned. Also easy to keep up with posts, without subscribing to them. Every time I come to AD, I go there, before doing anything else.
    Enjoy!
