No luck. Still takes a while. I'll download it and run it next time the comp is in the office.

Thanks guys,
Andy

Could be with your AV if you're using Norton or McAfee.

We're using McAfee, I know it's a hog but it's not slowing down the other laptop that is an exact duplicate.

his problem is that he has too many programs install and one or more of them are poorly wriitten

it might be a virus on his computer too.

I would also recheck the boot option in msconfig.

It's possible that you have some malicious program running and hidden on your system. Might also be that your hard drive is really bad or fragmented. A defragment wouldn't hurt. A scan for any malicious application is also good.
