    I rarely turn my computer off so I don't know when this started. It takes 4 and a half minuets to 5 minuets to boot up to the log in screen. I defragged, ran ad-aware and spybot pared down the start up menu and uninstalled some programs that I no longer use but it still boots slow. It runs at a good speed once it boots up. Any suggestions?

    Seems like it should boot fine. Not sure what's causing the slow boot. When did you first notice the slow boot?

    As I said I rarely turn off my computer so I really don't know when it started. I first noticed it yesterday. It is a problem I can live with but things like this bug me.
