Windows 7: start up slow and how to speed up comp

Do you have Daemon Tools installed? Daemon Tools does not work well with 7 and it is a good idea to remove it if you do have it.

open task manager and post a list of running processes at startup.. that will help. You could try disconnecting all peripheral hardware (printers, webcams, external drives, etc) and disabling everything in the startup tab of MSconfig. That alone should cut your boot time to less than a minute. Then start reattaching hardware and enabling startup items in msconfig one at a time and restarting until your boot time slows down again and you will have the source of your problems.

Not having Daemon tools, and not having it anymore a little different. For some reason, your computer is still trying to run the driver for it at startup. For the first time in my life, I'm going to recommend trying Ccleaner. It might remove any registry entries, files, etc. the was left behind when Daemon Tools was removed.

You'll have to disable it from the services list in MSconfig, then delete it from the registry in order to get rid of it completely, which can be accomplished with a simple search in regedit for instances of sptd

I have one idea. Go into bios and switch from AHCI to IDE, and see if you still have the problem.

Every where I look, people say that switching to IDE solves the problem.
