    I made the mistake of buying a registry cleaner advertised here and have not been able to get my computer back to normal since. When I turn the computer on, it gets past the Welcome screen and then goes blank for almost 3 minutes, and then the desk top comes up. MSConfig doesn't have anything unusual I can stop, but there was another url I got in this forum several months ago that I now can't find again. Seems to me that was similar to Msconfig but could be edited to shorten waiting time for certain functions. It looked very similar to a Prefs JS file, but much longer. Does it sound familiar to anyone and can you point me there? Thanks a bunch, Bahb
