I have a Dell Dimension 3000, about 4 years old, and Windows XP. Once the computer boots up, it runs fast and overall well. But it takes close to a half hour to boot up from the computer being off. My virus software is AVG. I have gone to MSCONFIG, and I have all the startup items unchecked, but there's no difference. My WIN ME computer, on the same wireless network, only takes a few minutes to boot up.
I'd appreciate any help, if there's anything I should be doing, or am overlooking. Thanks.
