I'm a little confused.

I have turned off system restore on this new XP machine and it still takes
forever to connect to "Local Server" and then even longer to connect to my

I have another Windows XP development machine that does not have the system
restore turned off and yet when I open IBConsole and double click on the
"Local Server" it connects instantly and then when I double click to connect
to the database, it connect instantly too. We have NOT renamed the GDB
extensions either. This computer is also using IB 6.01

Anything else to check?
