    Hi,
    Does anyone know of any software which will monitor a computer during the boot sequence to see what tasks it does during initial boot. My computer has recently decided to take 8 mins to boot, I have had all of the virus/spyware checked and all is OK so please confine your replies to my initial question. Regards, Dave

    Check that the Primary IDE channel is running in DMA mode, not PIO mode, you can find this setting in the Device Manager.
