Slow Boot & Slow Shutdown!

  BRUNOBEN 23:39 04 Mar 2008

Hi all.Can anyone please give me some advice.I have a advent lap 7077 and boot up & shutdown is very slow.I have gone to start>run>msconfig and unchecked programmes that are not important to help speed up boot but then I get a message saying I must log on to administrator to make the changes.How do I do that? Is it the name I registered with broadband provider?,I have logged in with this name but to no avail.Am I doing something wrong?.Please can anyone give some simple instructions on how to fix this problem..Many thanks in anticipation.

Control Panel > User Accounts > one will have the word (Administrator) by it > Log into that Account.

I assume that you are Defragging regularly and have the usual set-up of an AV, Fire wall, Anti Spyware and Adware. With all their Databases Updated and regularly run.
