My main question is: how long should I expect the Bullguard "registry defragmentation" process to take? I started running it about 150 mins ago, and it still says "defragmenting...".
 
I've had my PC (running Vista, hard disk) for three years. As with every PC I've had, the wait for boot-up takes longer and longer (about 14 mins at the moment). It has started behaving a bit badly lately as well - occasional frozen black screen; high cooling requirement i.e. loud fan after very little use; won't ever drop into sleep mode, sometimes won't wake up from sleep ....
 
Was I right to initiate a (first-time) registry defrag, and how long should I leave it to run before assuming it's not working properly?

14 mins for boot-up!!Something is very wrong with your hard disk or your OS.

Thanks for the reply. Yep, 14 mins. Windows appears fairly quickly, but it then takes an age to make anything available (there are a few programs that I like to load at startup).

Do you reckon it's worth upgrading to Windows 7? I had the choice when I bought the PC but Windows 7 was still in beta version so I went with Vista.

Once it's booted up everything works fine (apart from the screaming fan), so I suspect the HDD may not be the problem. Is there a utility that will check whether all Windows components are present and correct?

Thanks for the help - sorry I'm taking so long to reply, we have company and I'm moonlighting here.

Heck, I can't remember, what's a PM?

Thanks again for the help, Nedim.

It looks as though the culprit has been a remote player called PURE Flow Server that came bundled with a PURE wifi radio I've got.

I use the Sony Homestream for that stuff now (better-organized than Flow Server and works well with Sony TV and Bluray). So I thought I'd uninstall the alternative players that I used in the past - Winamp remote and Flow server, which both load at startup.

To my amazement uninstalling Flow Server caused bazillions of files in its own folder to be deleted - it took several minutes. After rebooting, I now have control of the PC within about five minutes which is much more acceptable.
