I have a system running on Windows 2000 Pro. Since the last 10-15 days, the startup has been very slow. It is taking more than ten minutes to get the login screen. Once the login screen has come up everything works fine. I connect to a local domain through a LAN and use outer DNS for the mail client and Internet facility. Any ideas how to solve this problem?
Check the audit records to see what changed 10+ days ago. Did you install any software or patches? Did you make any configuration changes? Is the hard drive getting full? Has the amount of memory dropped (which may indicate a RAM failure)? Check the Task Manager; is anything consuming more than normal resources? Consider decrementing and re-applying the latest service pack. A hard drive may be on its way to failing.
