Question about Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional for PC
Win2k desktop takes almost 10 minutes to start up and the performance is also very slow plz tell me some solution on it
When you start to shut down Windows XP, it has to quit, or "kill," any live
applications or processes that are currently running. So close all applications first.
However, some applications and processes are always running in the background.
You can reduce the amount of time that Windows XP waits for those applications and
processes to close before Windows XP kills them.
1. Open registry editor
2. Navigate to HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop. Set the
WaitToKillAppTimeout and set the value to 1000. Select the HungAppTimeout
\newline value and set it to 1000 as well.
3. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control.
Select the WaitToKillServiceTimeout value and set it to 10000.
4. Close the Registry Editor.
1. Start Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) and locate the following key in the registry:
2.On the EnablePrefetcher value, change the setting from 3 to 5 (decimal).
3. Close the registry editor and restart your computer Apart from this delete temp,%temp%,prefetch and increase virtual memory.

YOU MAY NEED TO UPGRADE YOUR MEMORY BUT 2000 PRO CAN RUN ON VERY SMALL AMOUNTS OF RAM.I THINK THAT YOU MAY HAVE A HARDWARE PROBLEM POSSIBLY A DISK OR MAYBE EVEN A BAD STICK OF RAM INSTALLED.COULD ALSO BE AN VIRUS OR INFECTION OF SOME SORTS.10 MINUTES IS AN ETERNITY FOR 2000 TO BOOT UP.IT SHOULD ONLY TAKE AT THE MAX A COUPLE OF MINUTES OR LESS.IF YOU HAVE THE INSTALL DISK,I SUGGEST RE-INSTALLING 2000 AGAIN AND SEE IF THAT SOLVES THE PROBLEM.YOU MAY HAVE CRITICAL FILES MISSING OR CORRUPTED THAT ARE CRIPPLING THE BOOT PROCESS OF WINDOWS 2000 AT START-UP.
