Hi
I’m running a Sony Vaio laptop Pentium M 750 1.86GHz with 1GB of memory. The machine is about 18 months old and is running well, but I thought it might be a good idea to have the smart guys here have a look at the HJT log before anything goes wrong. I have firewall and anti virus protection, and run AdAware and SpyBot regularly.

This HJT was run immediately after booting up, before running any applications manually.

The only slight grumble I have is that it seems to take quite a long time to boot up, about 3 minutes) so any tips to reduce that would be welcome.

Thanks in advance

have you checked your HARD DRIVE for FRAGMENTATION?

FRAGMENTATION can also cause your SYSTEM to boot slow.

right/click--propeties--- your HARD DRIVE icon in MY COMPUTER and check.

and in general cause the SYSTEM to responde very slow.

of course there could be other reasons for a slow startup.

Thanks for the advice guys, and the links. I'll look into it. I should have also said that I keep DiskKeeper running to ensure that my disk does nor get fragmented.
