I have two computers, identical except one has a pentium 2.4 gig and the other an athalon 1.8. When the pentium gets to the black winxp screen with the scrolling horizontal line it takes 40 seconds to get past that. The computer boots fine after that. The athalon takes only 15 serconds at that screen. Is it the differences in the processors that causes that or is there something else? Thanks for any suggestions!

Interesting, If you did the "optimize" thing, that is done automatically every 3 days by XP itself, unless you have specifically disabled it via the registry. That is primarily why Microsoft removed it from its own downloads site.

In any case if all is well, feel free to mark the thread "Solved" using the Thread Tools tab. You're certainly welcome for the help.
