XP login takes ages.

  jon_nic 13:52 11 Oct 05

hi, my pc takes ages to login to my account and just freezes on the welcome screen for about 3mins

i noticed that my user profile was exceeding 1GB and woundered if this was the problem as other accounts on the computer dont have this issue.

i have tried bootvis but this showed that there was no problem with drivers and boot up.

please help.

Have you checked for any issues in the Event Viewer?

I had a machine that was taking a very long time to boot up. Looked in the event log and saw that the "C" drive was having problems starting properly (although it was OK when it got going).

I made a clone of the drive, swapped for the original and everything is running very smoothly.

BTW, should have mentioned, I still use the faulty drive for temp file storage in video processing. It works perfectly as soon as it gets going.
