20 minute start-up

  Kernow999 11:38 28 Dec 2009

HI All
Mt p.c. takes about 20 minutes to start-up. I have looked in MSCONFIG - Startup to see what is there but am not sure what I can delete.
I have tried copy-paste to get the list up here but it won't work.
Any ideas on what I should have on the start=up list and what can be got rid of please?

Thank you

I take the ticks out of everything except firewall and virus checker. In addition you may have your graphic card driver. If not sure leave it then restart and take out others one at a time.

Excellent, thank you
Any idea how the Firewall and Graphics card may be detailed?

Thanks again

The graphics card reference will only be for its bespoke settings software not its driver which you don't need at start up anyway.

The Firewall will be indicated by its name, what Firewall are you using?

Depends what your firewall and graphics card are,you would be in a better position to know this.Just leave your antivirus and firewall ticked.
You can allways change it if theres a problem.
