I'm running an older PIII machine (Win 2000, 512 memory, two hard drives
10 gig each) and have been using ZASS forever....
Over the years the boot time is getting longer and longer and by boot time I mean
the time that my system is accessing the hard drives.
I suspected it had some thing to do with ZA so I did a little test.
I timed the start up time - from when I start the machine to when the hard drive access stops - and with ZA installed it takes 7 minutes and about 15 seconds.
If I uninstall ZASS it only takes 2 minutes and 45 second give or take a few seconds.
Is this normal and is there any thing I can do to shorten the boot time with ZASS installed.
FYI -just the basics running at boot up.
I have only 25
processes running according to Task manager and only 4 programs that
start up as defined by MSconfig.
No errors in event viewer etc.. What
do you think?
