Boot delay in XP
by BillTav - 6/20/11 1:21 PM
I have a specific delay in my XP bootup. All goes quickly until the wallpaper display - then there is a wait of 2.5 minutes before the desktop icons appear. I suspect the delay may be one of the services - but I have not been able to figure out which is causing the delay. What could be running in that specific interval?
I tried the stndard things - disabling various servicdes and startups. leaning registry, etc. Is there any way I can find out what is runnin duing that period? By the way, hard disk activity is minimal during the delay.
