Win2k takes 15-20 minutes to boot up. I have checked number of processes with the Windows Task Manager and found there are 62 processes which seems excessive and probably responsible for some of this slowness. Some of these seem to be left over from programs I have uninstalled.
Is there any way to find out which of these processes are necessary or at least a "where used list" showing which programs they are associated with?
Win2000 If you go to Start/run and type, services.msc then click OK it will bring up all your services etc which you can then edit by right-clicking. To find out which ones are used often view progs in add/remove.
I run W2k and have just checkef number of processes I have running - 37 - and my boot up time is about a minute. It could be that you have services enabled that you don't need. There's a guide to services, and what are essential / optional click here You can download the document & print it, but it is 45 pages.
