Hi. I fresh installed my server & installed latest CIS v5. My server boots up ok, logged in ok but very slow in loading startup (between 5-8 minutes). I only have a minimalist XP Pro SP3 install, motherboard drivers & CIS with nothing else installed at this moment. I found the solution in msconfig. The culprit is SISUSBRG.EXE which came from one of the mobo drivers. I disable that in msconfig & my server loads at startup as it should be.
For all the good folks that made CIS free, many thanks.
