View Full Version : Slow/Sluggish Startup - Dell 1501 winVISTA

Just as the title says, slow startup. Every third or forth start the "Welcome" screen stays on until I cannot take it anymore and hold the power button to restart.

I came to this site several years ago. I have forgotten the steps and the programs used to clean this puppy out. Anyone around that can help me out tonight?
