Well I've got a question for the Windows Doctor
Why is it that after installing all my mainly used programs, my computer's log in time slows WWAAAAAYYY down? I mean from just a second or two (fresh install), to like a minute+? Its really frustrating. It does it in XP and in Vista 64bit. If I just install Avast and Firefox however (and Winamp if I want music)....everything's sweet as a bell. I don't really have much that loads on startup (haven't personally tweaked msconfig MUCH, yet....here's my startup list:
Sidebar (I like it, so hush)
Everest Ultimate (for Vista Sidebar support)
So there's not a whole lot that loads on startup, and my rig really isn't all that slow. I know its nothing TOP of the line, but its more than enough for what I need (except GPU).
So Windows Doctor.....any possible culprits here?
I'd also like to point out the strangest thing here.....
After I log in once (REALLY slow), and log out, then log back in.....the second log in is quick like it should be. Help?
