Is this only on a restart or every time? Also I've notices that a lot of antivirus programs will scan files on start, slowing down the booting of the computer greatly. Another thing you can do is run msconfig and take out some of the startup items from the startup tab that you don't need starting up. This helps if you have heavy resource hog programs starting up or a lot of programs.Lazydog said:When I shutdown it takes a very long time for my pc to start back up again. I am running win 98,450mhz, 256ram. Tried everthing I can think of with no results.
Try using sysedit to look at the autoexec.bat and config.sys files to see if any other anti-virus programs are loading.Lazydog said:Danrak: Thanks
I tried the sysedit and mcafee ( which is what I have )was not there. I also unplugged the usb drive, Still very slow. Anymore suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
