Hi,

i have windows 2000 server and professional in my network.

out of which the server and some workstations are very slow.. i mean when i start the server it takes approx. 10 min to prompt for user name and password,then after providing uid and pwd it takes approx. 5-10 mins to display desktop and allow the user to work.

i have updated  norton anti virus software.
i don't think it's a problem of virus bcz i regularly scan the server and workstations.

but when i try to check the system partition using drive->properties->tools->checknow procedure it gives error that direct access to drive can't possible.
so it neither allow me to check nor defragment the system partition(c:).

Service status...

2-3 explorer.exe running
2-3 svchost.exe running
2 DLLHOST.exe running(out of which i able to delete one periodically and other one remains as it  is)


i have already checked with fixweltch,Fixmimail tool from norton there are nothing in my system..

kindly suggest me how to improve the performance of my server and workstations.


Thanks/Regards
Deepak

hi:

Click on start->run->then type in "msconfig" without ""
Click on the startup tab,
there you'll have a listing of all programs that startup when your computer starts up.
Simply uncheck the one you dont want to startup when you computer start up


*Windows 2000 does not have msconfig
Download the  files here

-----------------------------------------

>>backup ur registry first before u try this,in case ur registry corrupt unexpectally u can restore it back

Start>Run>regedit

Find the following branch:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER>Software>Microsoft>Windows>Current Version>Run

Don't delete anything you are not sure about though or you could end up with probems.

Also look in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>Sofare>Microsoft>Windows>Current Version>Run
but note that these settings affect all users of the computer, not just the one currently signed in.

Please close this question bcz i solved it myself.

my system was affected by w32.welchia.worm virus. which generally occupy more than 90 % of cpu and also sends junk bytes to network and make the network down.

and also my system was affected by SQL Server bug that's "Slammer Virus" that i rectified my installing the SQL patches.

Thanks/Regards
Deepak
