If it is slow to come to desktop (past windows icon) then you will want to run your "ngen.exe" to make sure you dont have a back log in your updates.
x86 version (run from command prompt)
x64 version (if you are running 64 bit then you will want to do x86 as well)
"Cold boots" happen when you are starting your PC with the HDD at a complete stop. If you 'Restart' your PC and you notice windows loads quickly then you may want to consider backing up your information. It is normal for a cold boot to take longer but if it is unusually long then there may be festering HDD issue.edit on 3-6-2012 by Cassey222 because: (no reason given)
