High end gaming PC takes a LONG time to boot
Ok so to preface, running XP x64 on a q6600 processor, 4gb DDR2-800 DAM, 8800 GT 512mb video card, 650 watt Ultra X-Finity Power Supply, Seagate 7200.11 250GB HDD.
So when my computer boots, it gets to the desktop with my start menu that I can access, my Stardock is loaded, but then it takes about 1-2 minutes sometimes to let me use explorer or Pidgin or other programs, then all of a sudden stuff catches up and it's all good. Any way to troubleshoot this?
I ran a full NOD32 scan, and a full SuperAntiSpyware scan. Ran HDD and Memory tests when this started happening, nothing.
