Compressing Registry adds extra 57 seconds to boot time
After telling Norton Utilities to compress my registry (Windows XP), an extra 57 seconds has been added to my boot time. Has occurred on 2 XP machine I did at the same time. Installed the Microsoft NT Kernel Logger Trace program from the Microsoft website. It showed an interval where 1% CPU time (the Trace program itself) and 0 I/O requests occur during those extra 57 seconds during bootup. Told Norton Utilities to Restore Registry Backup, then rebooted. The extra 57 seconds still occur during bootup. The RegCompact.log in the Norton Utilities directory shows just general info on the various parts of the Registry that were changed and some large backup files that were created in the Windows\System32\Config directory that end in ".rrr", but they are in binary format.
How do I undo what the Norton Utilities compress registry did to get back to my normal bootup up time (it was 13 seconds before from my Flash SSD Drive C:) that I have not already tried?
