Hey ALL !
I have an Acer Aspire 5102 WLMI , lap top computer that is loaded with Windows XP Media Center Edition . It has 896 MB of RAM . This is the slowest starting computer around ! I have checked it for viruses and it is clean. I have removed approx. 10 items from the start up menue and it still takes 6 minutes for the thing to finish loading AVG and Zone Alarm. and all it's little icons at the bottom. . It has AVG anti virus and also has Zone alarm fire wall. It has only used 14.6 GB and has 38.5 GB Free space. Under " My Computer it lists 2 HARD DISK drives.....One is Acer "C" drive and the other is Acerdata drive (D). The (C) drive says it has 38.4 GB of free space with a total size of 53.1 GB . The (D) drive says that it has 53.6 GB of free space and 53.6 total size.
Here is a list of the items that NOW load at start up......

Acer Empowering T...
One item does not give it's name or the Command
On the desk top there appears a "tool bar called the "Empowering Technology Toolbar". I wonder how much that thing effects the speed of this computer ? Can I rid this computer of THAT tool bar ?
Can anyone help me speed this thing up ?
I appreciate all that this sight has to offer and I'm proud to be a part of it !
thanks again !!!
