Hello. Windows XP seems to be taking an age to load up these days. In particular, it's when the black screen with the Windows logo in the middle and the small sideways-scrolling blue loading bar underneath is on - ie: just before the blue 'logon' screen appears. I timed it just now and that screen sat there for 1 minute and 24 seconds, with little indciation that anything was happening (the hard drive light would flicker now and then, but that's about it). Is this normal? I'm sure it used to be much faster, but don't know what could have changed things. I use CCleaner regularly, which shifts lots of unwanted stuff, and also defrag'd some time ago (tho' it told me it wasn't really necessary...) Any ideas? Thanks.
