    Doubt it, it's only for profiling boot times.

    Don't listen to Microsoft's bull****. Bootvis DOES reduce boot times.

    Hmmm, I'm having problems similar to the earlier dude. I followed the instructions exactly. I ran into a problem with Windows File Protection. I didn't get any kind of message or pop-up that alerted me about Windows File Protection (no window to hit cancel on). But I noticed that when I came back to the System32 directory, after going to where I had minlogin stored to copy it, winlogon.exe, which had been deleted, was back. I found a place online that showed me how to disable Windows File Protection, I tested it out and it worked. Then I continued with the minlogon instructions. I checked to make sure and it was 17KBs. I imported the registry key after deleting everything. Once I finished all that I rebooted and the classic login screen popped up. I tried logging in with my user name (no password) and it the screen would go away and just have a blue background, it would wait a few seconds, then the login screen would pop back up. After that I tried using my Administrator account and password, this produced a bit different results. The login screen disappeared, I got the blue background again, but this time the Windows login sound played (which I previously had disabled), but about 2 seconds after it finished, the shutdown song played and the login screen popped backup. Anybody have any ideas?

    Any idea what that boot time is on a regular drive? I have the same setup on a laptop drive booting in 35 seconds.

    Post your boot vis, log file. What speed is your computer ? (Ram, ram clock speed, cpu cpu bus ? )

    Bootvis is from microsoft and says it can increase boot times by 2-3 seconds... it does this by optomizeing the drive... which you can do manually..

    Ok I got it all working nicely. I'm too tired to pack it all up
    and release tonight, but as soon as I have time tomorrow I'll
    post up the solution and instructions.

    Should be possible.. I tried replacing winlogon.ex_ in the i386 folder, before building the iso.. everything installed ok, but left me with an BSOD at the first boot.. Guess XP needs some stuff in orig. winlogon at the first boot, but I'll have to give it a few more tries.. I'll keep you updated!
