Since I loaded SP2 my boot time got so bad I could go and have a sandwich, I timed it a just short of nine minutes. I have done a bit of tweaking to caches and wrote a couple of batch files trying to speed things up all NG. Fred Langa did an article on registry bloat, the article is in the link below. I down loaded a "FREE" copy of Reg Supreme his pick and ran it, it found 471 bad entries, repaired 30 some odd and deleted the rest but automatically made a back if needed. I re-booted to find the boot time dropped to just under four minutes, now for the kicker my program are loading in less then half the time it took before I ran this little gem.

P.S. Subscribing to the Langa list has helped me out for many years, you may want to try it also is is free unless you get the advanced issue.
