Computer Stats: P130, 32mb Ram, 3gig harddrive.

My computer never had a problem with booting speed, it used to be fast with about only 12 seconds boot time.  However a few days ago I installed Win95 5 times over each other,  then everytime I boot into windows 95 I get a pause for about 12 seconds which increase boot time to double the size, well anyone it happens after all drivers have finished loading and entering windows where you are issued with a black screen, and mouse pointer not moving, during this moment the 12 seconds begin and I do not have a clue to what it is doing.

What could be wrong its not hardware trouble because I have tested it, so its software but can anyone figure it out.

I saw something like that with master and slave disk drives not configured properly.

Any recent change in any piece of hardware or software ?
Maybe a disk has to be defraged?

1.Why did you installed 5 times W95? Have you tried to remove W95 and make a clean setup?
2. Check your Autoexec.bat, Config.sys and Dosstart.bat for any useless drivers being loaded.
3. Do you use any auto starting virus checker?

Start/Run/Regedit. Check entry belove.

HKLM,Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run for any programentry. If there is any, try to disable them.
