Hey guys, I just recently started getting start ups that take about 2-3x as long to start up as it did before. I hadn't changed OSes (it was fine under 10.2.1, then it wasnt). I think its just bothersome to have to wait a few minutes for start up. Can anyone help me? O and my HD isnt full, if that is what your thinking of. And i do not own any norton utilities either, so if i have a drive frag problem, tell me where i can get that corrected through eitehr free software, apple software or the software that came w/ my apple care (tech tool deluxe). O and it stays at the grey screen taht comes before the main, blue load screen. Thanks for the help.
