Angry slow start up

i installed rollercoaster tycoon 3 on my pc, but the windows xp boot up time is longer now. i do know that it takes up a lot of graphics when i play it, but why on windows boot? the same thing happened when i installed simcity 4, untill i uninstalled it. how can i get a faster boot again?

Go Start/run (type msconfig)/start, and uncheck all that is related to the software you just installed.
Reboot and good luck...

Yeah, that's really weird, the only thing I can think of is checking off everything you don't need on MSCONFIG, but like you said "It has nothing to do with this".
