After restore, XP is boots as slow as molasses

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Martin R. Howell, Nov 17, 2004.

  1. I had xp sp2 and had to run repair off the xp restoration disk. Everything
    survived the restoration/repair and the system worked again. . .only it
    takes FOREVER for windows to come up and most oftenly to boot off also.

    Anyone know how to get it booting up and out more quickly? It used to be
    pretty darn fast.

    Oh yea, almost forgot. I have now left it on service pack 1 and haven't
    jacked it back up to service pack 2.

    Defrag the HDD, the system files will be all over the place.

    Normality will be restored once we work out what normality actually is.
