ok, so my laptop stays on the ALL BLACK background with WINDOWS XP logo in the middle for almost 5 minutes. This problem has become more troubling to me now, taking hell lotta time. :confused: :confused:
1 out of 8 times approximate, its amazingly fast, and passes that same screen within 10 seconds. :eek: :eek:

Recently i have installed bitdefender antivirus(earlier had AVG free), but this problem is since before that.

Also another problem, now after the blue welcome screen and because of this new antivirus(surely), it takes another 3 minutes for the system to be ready for use.

Pls tell me, wat i need to put up here as to help u guys rectify this problem. :rolleyes:

just the first 3 uncheck the rest
thanks buddy, i have done it and there is a noticable change in speed. Any more tweaks??

I have even cleaned the registry using "regsupreme" software.

Okey, any more ways to speed up the system?

I have attached an image of the processes currently going on, is anything unwanted? and should i also attach hijackthis log? :)

asphalt, to tell Windows Update not to "offer" you a certain update again, uncheck it in the list of available updates next time (including if it's the only one). After that, it will ask you if you'd prefer not to ever be offered that update again.

If you ever change your mind about an update you've done that with, just go to the Windows/Microsoft Update site itself and it can be detected again.
