Default 1 Question. 1 Problem.

I have both a question and a problem for you to answer please.

Question: Anyone here know of a really good site that informs you of new hardware and software that comes out? Not the manufacturer's site or that, but one that tells about the latest all-over stuff? i.e. mobo, vid, cpu, etc.

Problem: My bro was complaining about how slow his computer boots up. I stood there and watched, and it took at least 10 minutes just to get to the desktop. Then he said that it continues loading everything up for an additional 20-30 minutes or so. I'm not sure if it still does this (hes at college). Anyone have any sort of suggestion or answer to solve this? Thanks.

http://www.tomshardware.com/ - the best

theres the ones i go to.

go to msconfig if it is a 98 or xp machine and start unchecking stuff.
or regedit /local machine/microsoft/windows/current version/run
that is where most of the startup programs are listed.
And if you are xp or 2k, go to your admin tools/services.
You might have a bunch of stupid services installed
I also recommend downloading adaware and scanning for spyware

You can use this to guide you through the process. Use this if you have Windows 2000.
