Fastest I have ever had was 13seconds. Measured using bootvis (search on google for it, was a module in windows 2000 that you can use in XP to measure your boot time). Had all my normal programs running; msn, activsync; steam,AVG.

As long as mine isn't above 1 minute then I don't really care, I usually leave my computer running 24/7 anyway.

I take that as another reason not to install SP2?

Since I defragged my HD and ran Bootvis, a lot faster :)

Around 30 seconds or so now.

What's prefetch anyway, if I might ask?

Basically settings for booting up the computer of last existing times. If you delete all of that, then it sets the system back to defaults.

Example; IE won't be maximized when you open it as default, if you have directories set a certain way, it goes back to windows default, etc.

From Microsoft, the prefetch is a memory management feature that saves all the executables you run in pre-execution form and saves them into the prefetch folder.. On startup, windows tries to load all the files in the prefetch folder into memory to make applications run faster.. the problem is that every executable you run (from setup files, to softwares, to utilities) is automatically saved in that folder making your windows slower with time.. it doesnt have anything to do with directory settings and windows settings. :)
