    When I start up my windows 2000 professional on my Dell Latitude laptop, it takes very long to get to the username/password screen (30min.) Once I get there it takes another 20 min to get to the desktop. And then it continues to run just as slow. I have a Pentium 3, 500Mhz laptop. Can anyone help?

    30 min+20 min!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????????????????

    This goes waaaaaaaaaaaaaay beyond slow startup!(And this may take a while ,so be patient)

    First,have you thought about disabling startup items that you don't need to start on bootup.Having too much stuff in there can slow your system down dramatically.The only things I allow to start on bootup on my machine are my anti virus and firewall.

    Also go here:http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm
    and check out the service configurations,there are a lot of services that you can disable to help your system run better and faster
