Win 98SE bootup speed.

  Valvegrid 20:36 09 Sep 2003

I'm running Windows 98SE with 98lite. The bootup speed is 1 minute 40 seconds from switch on till I'm able to use the first program. The only programs loading at startup are AVG and ZoneLab.

I would be interested to know what bootup speed other folks are getting with Win 98SE so I can gauge if this is acceptable with the setup I'm using at the moment.

Thanks in advance.

Used to run P11 300mhz + 384 ram.

Startup times were very similar to what you are getting.

Acknowledged minter.

vienna1981, how many other programs do you have loading at startup?

Thanks both

Obviously no one else is using Windows 98.
