Hehe, thanks, Rob. My problem with my current rig is a VERY LONG startup...It's to the point where I really dread having to restart, because it takes a full 5-10 minutes to get running again. Like you, I've scoured forums, tried everything I can think of, but nada...I'm just going to accept this as a necessary evil of this rig and look forward to eventually upgrading to a new machine.
It sounds like your start up is degraded. Are you using windows 7? There are tools built in to streamline boot time and shut down times. Check your logs, open event viewer, select applications and Services Logs, Microsoft Folder, then Diagnostics - Performance. Click the Operational look for warnings and errors. If you have them select them and identify what is causing problems. My problem right now for a slow boot is because my hard drive is old and it seems to be getting slower as time progresses. My next purchase will be an SSD drive.
