I have a 2003 Small Business Server that takes an extremely long time to boot (about 30-45 minutes).  when it eventually does boot, it runs extremely slow.  I check the system resources, and it is using no where near the memory it has (using 1GB out of 3 GB).  I ran a hardware diagnostic and the hardware all checks out fine.  However, when i boot into Safe Mode it runs with no issues, so I am thinking a software issue.  A few days ago when this started, the server almost ran out of disk space.  I have cleared 6 GB of space on the drive, but it still runs so slow no user can log into Exchange.  Is there someting else that I can check that may helo resolve this isse?  I really dont want to have to reload Windows.
