Default Gooooood Day All!

Hey all!

Long time since ive posted. =\, been caught up in 'this and that'.

On to matters, I was wondering about my boot up time. Recently i havent been shutting down my computer for like 5-10 days on end. When i do shut my computer down, to clear my RAM, i notice that its startin to slow down a bit. It takes like 3-5 minutes for everything to load up. I know the whole wear and tear issue. I was just wondering is there anything to help this? I Defrag, System Clean, and Searchs blah blah blah.

Cheers-

Leaving the computer on does not slow it down.

I think it organizes the drivers that load on bootup.

if you want, get a prgram called system suite 5 and use the registry cleaner. it will take out any nonsense you might have just floatin around in your registry.

Yeah, that too. Alot of start up items will definatly slow boot up down.. Still Bootvis will still make it faster than it is.
