    [FONT=Verdana, Arial] Okay my laptop, a Vaio FS980, loads really slow, everything comes up fast but after the welcome screen the background shows up but nothing loads for like 2 minutes, I open up the task manager but nothing much is going on in there. What could be the problem? I have 1GB ram, and it's defraged, checked for viruses, I followed your speed up guide, but it just won't load, until something lets it after a while....[/FONT]

    Grab a copy of AutoRuns

    This should give you a better idea of what is starting after winlogon.

    When did this start happening?

    If it's been like that all along, I would guess that you probably are running through a dsl modem with zonealarm and an antivirus. How close am I on that?

    It that's the case, get used to it. There's nothing you can do.

    Well I don't think it has anything to do with the antivirus or the highspeed internet, becuase my desktop dosn't do this. I can't remember what I installed that's making this so slow... I tried a lot of tweaking tutorials, I tried msconfig to stop all the things from turning on at boot, and it's still being stupid.

    Okay I've done msconfig and narrowed it down to one of these services:

    You could try to turn all of them off and see if it makes any difference.

    If they are off and it still boots up slow, then they are not the problem.

    Oh, I didn't get that.

    Nothing like good old trial and error to narrow things down. :cool:

    my drive is slowing down a lot.

    the reason as far as i can tell is because windows tends to crap out on itself after you install and uninstall a bunch of software. no matter how many different registry cleaners you run and defrags, it slows down.

    also, you can msconfig and turn everything off, it's still slow. i've worked on pcs for a while now and the best method of fixing this is just a fresh windows install
    (or in my case, a fresh image)
    i might try a repair install for the hell of it to see if that makes a difference.
