TOPIC: slow start up

slow start up 14 years 8 months ago #4218

Well guys, another problem...
I have recently made some few changes to the services in the xp pro...
But now i suffer from a very sloooooooooowwwwww start up.....

Well, i would like to know what to know...
TO give you some clues:
in the start up i run:
some services
normal strange processes.
Total: 18 processes.

I look foward to hearing from you.....

You might want to check msconfig to see what other programs are running when windows starts up. One of my friends had the same problem and it turned out that it was a firewall that he was using. Disable all unnecessary programs and try it. Also check for any spywares or any virus. GL

What services did you disable? I know I once disabled 'Event Log' service, and my computer took awhile to load.

I’m assuming that your computer boots to the GUI at the same speed, just logging on takes all the time?

Re: slow start up 14 years 8 months ago #4232

18 processes is not bad at all, as neon said it could be that you stopped a service that many other programs like to use -- like event log..

I didn't know it was possible to stop event log.. it allows you to disable it, but it ultimately seems to keep coming back

Could be ZoneAlarm.

ZA takes the longest to load for me after GUI comes up.
