Slow Start + Shutdown of XP

  I-W 09:51 04 Mar 2005

Over the last coulpe of days I'v noticed that XP is taking longer and longer to start up (2 mins approx) and shut down (5 mins approx). I'm not sure if these messures help the speed of my pc but I regularly clean out temp intenet files, cookies and have disk keep for defrag. I also use mem turbo to keep an eye on my ram which at ultimate best runs at 399. I have a 2.5 ghz cpu. But seems to be constantl running sub 200. How can I speed up start up and shut down?

remove unneccesary items from the startup list and also check your antivirus isn't causing the problems by scanning at these particular times

The antivirus is not scanning at these times and i'v removed all unecesary start up items but still the problem.

Is Event Viewer showing up any errors on startup and shutdown in the Application and/or System sections?

Start\All Programs\Administrative Tools\Event Viewer.

click here might shed some light. Choose your operating system (XP) and then type in the ID.No. (Event Viewer shows the time the error occurred so you would be interested in the errors which occurred at startup and shutdown).
