    Hi
    My boot time is getting longer and longer so I thought a good place to start would be to create a bootlog.
    The first item I looked at was "Did not load driver.....ipnat .sys. Is this significant?
    I found a forum in which one contributor said if you find more than one instance of the file you should keep the one in
    system32/drivers/ and delete any others, as I have a second instance in C:/windows/servicepack files.....would you recommend I delete it or leave well alone?
    regards
    phil

    Leave it. It's normal to have the file in those locations.

    You should also edit your computer specs to remove the part that's not relevant to computer specs.

    Hi Cookiegal
    Thank you for replying. I will follow your advice and leave well alone.
    Computer specs are flexible, depends what I can get running. The machine in question is an elite dual core with, I think, 2.2 processor. OS is Windows XP professional SP 3.
    Will now mark "Solved"
    Regards
    phil
