My system takes a long time to boot up (like 5 minutes) and after it works fine.What could be going on here?
The machine is an HP and about 3 years old with dial up 128mb memory. Can anyone help?

thanks

Sounds like it's chock full of junk software etc, lots of baggage after 3 years of usage, plus having only 128MB of ram doesn't help...

mine took about 5 minutes to boot when I had only 128 MB RAM. After adding a 512MB stick it now boots in 40 seconds.
