Here is an interesting problem for all you experts out there... A while ago I discovered that my WinXP takes a bit to long to boot. The first thing I checked was all of the autostarts, without any results. It's a 30-40s long pause just before the desktop loads where there's no activity at all. I googeled a bit and found a nice little program called Bootvis from, yours truly, MS. This program does an analysis of the boot process and displays what happens each second. Se the screen dump here. The info window "Driver:unknown" is about the long green section ranging from 39 to 69s. So it looks like there is someting wrong with a driver. I have searched for "LanmanDatagramReceiver" everywhere. There is no reference on the HD or in the registry. "Lanman" seems to be an old authentication protocol for network trafic from before the WinNT-time. But I don't understand why I'm having trouble with it now? I don't have any malfunctioning devices in the device manager except one: "Parport" under "Non-Plug and Play Drivers" (if you show hidden devices). From what I understand this has to do with the parallel port. My question is: How do I get rid of my 30s delay during boot, it's really annoying! I hope that someone here has som useful tips, I woulden't whant to reinstall Windows just because of this.
