    I recently upgrade from ME to XP Home. Now it takes 2 minutes to get past Dell Logo, before it gets to Windows XP start up. Didn't take nearly as long with Windows ME. Have even less programs starting at start up then before. PC is 4 yrs. old. Dell XPS T500, Pentium 3, 512 Ram. Any easy way to cure this? Thanks Ives

    First thing to try is to go to Black Viper's site and use his guide to turn off all of XP's unnecessary services. Use the settings in the "Safe" column.

    Have you gotten the M$ patchs for XP? You need to do that so you don't get the blaster worm.
