Can any expert in here tell me how to speedup the strart of XP Pro.
From startup to the logon screen takes forever, but from the logon goes fast.
I suspect it is starting a lot of unnessessary stuff and reading the post from Qibler in the "Dumping XP" thread seems to confirm this.
What can I turn off and how do I do it??
TIA
Colin

Also modifying the "Prefetch parameters" through the registry will do it... I forget how it was done, but someone here will remember...

Lo.
