Finding out what slows down Win95 booting
My AMD 300 was taking a full minute to boot - I've searched Usenet over
and over, read enormous amount of articles and still couldn't
pinpoint what's slowing me down.
Then I did "step by step boot" - but the slow part was obviously within
"load all windows drivers" section. I thought: "If only I could get a
timer for BOOTLOG.TXT,
so I could know which of these drivers is the menace". Well, I went to
winfiles.com, search for 'BOOTLOG' and found
10 minutes later I've found the culprit - NDISWAN.VXD takes a good half of
a minute -
50% of boot time!! And NDISWAN belongs to MS Private Networking, that I have
no intention of ever using!!!
Give Bootlog Analyser a try - it's time to regain some control
over our computers (the kind we had back in DOS days! :)
