    Delay on Startup...

    It is just 3 months old Windows Vista running on Dell Desktop. From last 4 to 5 days I am facing some problem with the same. My system boot time was very good, but as I said, from last couple of days it took more than 10 minutes to boot up completely. Though I get to the desktop in 3 to 4 minutes, thereafter hard drive stops working for about 5 minutes., I cannot do anything in this period because vista gets freeze completely.

    When I checked the event viewer to get some help, this is what I found:
    Windows has started up:

    I have been using Diskeeper since long time and I donít think that it is the cause of the startup delay. I suspect some driver or any other services for the same. But if you think it is the diskeeper, than will suggest you to drop a mail to diskeeper assistants on, they are very good for help.

    Well thanks for the help friend, if it is not Diskeeper, than according to you what services can cause the problem? I really donít know; hope you might be having some experience of this. So please name any services that you suspect can be the cause of this slow startup on vista ?

    Re: Delay on Startup...

    Is your system connected to any network PC or mapped with any network drive ? or is there any such shortcuts on yoiur desktop for the mapped drive or computer ? If yes, that could be causing the issue. You should move all these shortcuts and files to a new folder on desktop. Also once reboot the PC your are connected with on the network. This is what I have done in past while facing the same problem on Windows XP as yours. It can help.
