If none of those make any difference, it could be time for a good Registry cleaner: click here

What maintenance do you normally do

What AV, Firewall and other Anti-Malwear Programs are you running.

Sorry for the delay, watching the end of NICS!

I'm running AVG free and Zone alarm, l think it might be because lve got to much starting up automatically but l don't remember how to remedy

O yea, an l run CCleaner

type into run...
then uncheck the programs under start up
it will ask for restart
upon restart a system configuration box will pop up
put a tick in the box bottom left corner and then ok.

i use this
click here
as alternative to msconfig
once youve downloaded and installed the app,it resides in the control panel(start up)

check the entries
HKLM & HKCU,uncheck them and thats it.

Are you running the latest version of Zone alarm?
If yes.there have been a few problems with this version causing slow boot up,hanging on the welcome screen.
