I have just cleaned up my Dell Latitude 610,using De-fraggler and CC cleaner,but start-up is very slow, about 3 minutes to welcome screen on xp-proffessional .Once on line it is quite good,I know the battery is completely dead will this be the cause of the slow start-up.Thank you.

I know the battery is completely dead will this be the cause of the slow start-up.

Unlikely

Probably too many start up programs or services I can get XP pro to the desktop of an old IBM P4 in 29 secs with minimal services and only protction progs running at start.

As you already have CCleaner look in the Tools - startup, here you can disable startup programs and probably find what is causing the slow start.
