My MacBookPro has been extremely slow at the startup. Is there something similar to Window's System Registry that I can see all the boot files and uncheck what I don't need?

I'm running Mac OS X Version 10.6.8

  • Model Name: MacBook Pro
  • Model Identifier: MacBookPro7,1
  • Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
  • Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz
  • Number Of Processors: 1
  • Total Number Of Cores: 2
  • L2 Cache: 3 MB
  • Memory: 4 GB
  • Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz
  • Boot ROM Version: MBP71.0039.B0B
  • SMC Version (system): 1.62f7
  • First boot in verbose mode and see what takes time - also what are you measuring the time to - getting the window to enter user name and password or until the users's programs have started

try clearing temporary files and prefs (Note: do it within your user library not on system library. I had a bad experience with it before).
