Default Re: Pc takes too long to boot up

I would suggest a BIOS update. It could very well be something with that as well.

That may be true but why would it happen out of the blue when I havent changed anything in my PC. It was running fine 2 nights ago and nothings changed.

I've looked at that. No errors at start up in event viewer.

Anyone ever had this problem before? I've googled my eyes off and I still cant find out why this is happening

msconfig, disable all non necessary progams to boot.

At this point there is nothing more that can be suggested other than a Repair install or a format and reinstall. There is something causing this conflict. Maybe driver or driver software that is loading? We dont know for sure.

It could be a update to a anti-virus program that you are running. There are so many factors that come into play. Could very well be a corrupted profile.

This is saying that those security indexes were no longer in use and that it deleted them. They are most likely security indexes for web sites. Like cookies.

This is giving you information on your drive that it just ran the check on.

The first one is of course the Free Space in KB.
The 2nd section shows how much space you have taken up and by how many files.
The 3rd one shows how many indexes you have for the system and the amount of space they take up.
The 4th one tells you about the bad sectors if any it found. It didnt find any so that is a very good sign.
The 5th one tells you how much space your system files are taking up.
The 6th one tells you how much space your check disk log is taking up.
The last one tells you how much free space is left on your system in KB.

Does that help explain it a little bit? Do you need some more clarification?
