Default Re: How Many Loading Bars?

If ive installed a different start screen, it still has the bar and it seems tobe going at same speed of the other one, IS it the same as the normal boot screen? in terms of how many times the bar goes across lol.

On my amd computer that i have just reinstalled with xp it goes 4-5 times , not the best but before it could go up to 10 cos of all the stuff i had on it , its great when you reinstall xp and it goes about 3 times but after a while it just gets higher and higher as your comp gets full of junk

It depends on how many services, processes, and things of that nature are getting loaded at boot. If you streamline your system it reduces the boot time hence less bars.

I don't know how many, but I think 2-3 would be a good thought.

8 months ago, 3 bars. Today, without reforming or any cleaning of any sort, 8.

I think it was about 4-5, but I changed my boot screen, so I wouldn't know.

mine is a nice 5.5.

too bad vista doesn't have the bar by default... (or does it? now that i think about it, i don't remember.) At the very least i know it doesn't have its nice lookin boot screen on by default.
