    why does windows sp professional suddenly starts up real slow. There is a long pause in the windows is starting up screen after booting,And it takes almost 3 minutes before showing the welcome screen. I did everything i could, including running in safe mode, and repaired.

    go to
    start -> run -> msconfig
    see which items can u remove from startup
    and also check
    start -> run -> services.msc
    look for services which are in 'manual' mode which are 'started' .. may be one of them may be causing a delay

    i remember reading it in
    30 min. expert of digit special booklet which came free with aug03 issue .

    there they say how to make XP start up fast.

    win xp can be used as a server too, so if u want to can disable all these stuff.

    Have u noticed when u shut down it says " closing ur n/w connection " .
