I uncheck everything except AV and gadgets (sidebar).
Check Diagnostics-Performance log to see what app/driver
might be hanging Startup. Right click Computer>Properties>click WEI score link>Advanced Tools. Also Create System Health Report there.
I believe you have a System Image stored in partition on your HD. Back up all of your files since you made the System Image and reimage your HD if you can't find the cause of your slow startup which is probably unnecessary tweaking that caused Reliability monitor to go away.
well i look in Msconfig and in the genral tab, selective start up in the opition rather than diganostice or Normal.
Services has a lot of things
start up had a couple but now has Live messanger, Microsft(r) OS and MSE
the please wait has sorta gone... and i dont know the rest of the things u said to do :P
and my System image does not have office in it, and right now i need office as i have a lot of assigments to do with school
