ok about a week ago my laptop dell inspiron 1300
3 mths old just started to take for ever to start
windows like 3 min at the screen where it says loading windows
with the little progress bar
witch by the way keeps moving
my ? is does any one know a program that will tell me what loads at start up and how long each prog takes to load so i can find the slow prog to fix it?

First I would run your anti-virus scanner followed by Ad-Aware and Spybot
Then run ScanDisk followed by Defrag.
After all of that, in SafeMode, get back to me on the start up times.
If your laptop takes a while to boot up, it may be because of lack of memory. Boot in safemode and check your disk space. If memory isn't the problem your windows may be corrupt.

None of that made any sense.
He can check the HDD space in normal start up
Please which HDD has nothing to do with memory, meaning system memory aka RAM.

have spybot with teatimer running (not set to scan at every start up)
3.5 % fragmanted defrag not needed
512 mesg ram
and a 2.75 ghz pent m
still takes forever to start up but runs fine when it does

If you want to see what programs and services run when your computer starts up click on the start bar, then click run, type in msconfig, hit ok. Then click on the startup tab, this will show you all the programs that run when windows starts up.
