    all of a sudden my windows 2000 literally takes 15minutes to boot up, it never did this til today, i havnt downloaded anything or made any changes it just does it now, it would seem like it freezes on the windows loading screen, but i would leave it on for like 15minutes then it finally goes to the log on screen, any reason why?? thanks

    At the beginning of the year my WinXP did the same thing, took 5-10 minutes to boot up. I found it to be my DVD drive, it must have broke or something because its read speed declined to the point where I couldn't even play a DVD movie without massive skipping, so I replaced it and my bootup time went back to normal, weird.
