System: Pentium dual-core CPU T4400 2.2GHz processors, 4GB RAM, 64-Bit, Windows 7 Home Premium edition, Dell Inspiron 1750 laptop.
This computer is taking well over a minute to boot up and the time seems to be getting longer and longer. Steps taken recently include spyware/adware/malware scans (1 file quarantined), typical defrag, disk cleanup but nothing seems to affect the time. Event Viewer is logging several errors on the Kernel event area and reads:
Error Code: 3221225864
Would this slow down the boot process and, if so, anyone have a clue how to rectify this? Thanks for your time.
