pepa31 please tick this thread as resolved and stick to the other one as the problem is related to your other thread.
If you have multiple threads on the same subject you will confuse us and yourself.
Stick to the one thread.

Unless you are running win2000 go to start > run > type msconfig and hit enter go to the startup tab and untick just about everything except your anti virus and wireless keyboards mouse networking etc, if you are are running win98 you will need to leave systray. then reboot.

Are you running a complete security suite like Mcafee/Norton etc?
When I ditched my Mcafee suite it knocked around 2 minutes off my start up time.
