Boot up question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey bros. I've something that i'm unsure about. I have downloaded and installed a number of software from the Internet. A number of these are file sharing programs. After that, I noticed that my computer generally takes at least 5 minutes to boot up. In addition, the shutdown is equally slow and sometimes when double clicking on “My Computer”, it refuses to load. I've tried to clean up the computer registry and used my windows disk cleaner but this has resulted in no improvements. My antivirus software did not detect any viruses. In addition, I have also taken a look at the Windows Task Manager but I do not know how to interpret the information shown.

i7 620M 2.66GHz
HD5650
4GB RAM

Can i assume that theres too many startup programs that slow down the speed of the startup? Or are there other possibilities that are slowing down the startup speed?

Sorry. Another qn. What does the CPU up there mean and the numbers like 02/01/00 and such?

Search msconfig in the search programs and files, then go to the start up tab. Uncheck everything you don't need while your booting in, like MSN, itunes ect.. should help a lot

^Agreed, un~check all unnecessary startup programs and see whether if the bootup time has changed. If it still takes long then perhaps its a HDD issue.
