Very long boot time after uninstall




I am running winxp sp1.

I have tried this solution:

  1. Go to Start -> Run and type regedit
    1a. Find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall{E9F81423-211E-46B6-9AE0-38568BC5CF6F} and delete it.
    1b. Find HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\32418F9EE1126B64A90E8365B85CFCF6 and delete it

  2. Now go to Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager
    2a. Under SCSI and RAID controllers delete the key for vax347s (or a347scsi for previous version)
    2b. Under System devices delete the Plug and Play BIOS Extension

  3. Back in the registry find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services and delete the keys for vax347b and vax347s (or a347bus and a347scsi for previous version) and remove the corresponding files from Windows\system32\drivers
    3a. If you’re running Win9x, also delete vax347s.pdr (or a347scsi.pdr for previous version) from Windows\System\iosubsys

After doing all that, I STILL get a very long boot time. I have tried reinstalling and uninstalling, still long boot time.

What is causing this long boot time? How can I fix it?


Try updating to latest version


This all occured with version of alcohol120%, which is the latest right?
