Hi,
I'll try to keep it as short as I can. I had a lot of problems for about 9 months re BODs etc and then my HDD crashed but luckilly I had a second HDD in the computer so I only had to use Acronis to reformat and copy my old image to the new HDD.I then found out that the old memory, 500mb, was not compatible with the 2 gig of memory I installed 9 months ago.
Everything seemed OK after the new HDD was installed, I had to get a 250gb HDD, western digital,the origional and backup HDD were 160gb.
Now after deleting various progs from the startup menu my loadup of windows seems painfully slow, it takes 6.5 mintes to load my startup progs and a further minte for the HDD to settle enough to use the computer, which then appears normal.
My System comprises of :-
Pentium 4 2.8 GH, 2 gb ddr ram,
Running XP Pro + service Pack2,

My Startup loads:-
Epson Printer
Safely remove hardware!
Voipvoice(disconnected)!
Popup ad filter
window washer
AVG free edition
Skype
AnyDVD
AVG anti Spyware
Internet connection
ATI graphic card

Prior to my HDD failure the computer loaded windows much faster and with more in my startup menu.

Can anyone help me to find out the cause of the sluggish start and perhaps recommend a speedup or diagnosis program which will help me to sort out my problem.

Any help will be much appreciated,

Dave
