From the Start Menu, select Run and type in Regedit, click OK. Navigate to HKEY LOCAL MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Hughes Network Systems\DirecPC\DPCStart\0100DPCNav. Under Name in the left pane, look for StartDelay. The default value for this key is 10. To change to a lower value for quicker startup, right-click the Name and click Modify. Type in a number between 0 and 10. A value of 0 might cause Navigator to run too early for other components of your particular computer. Therefore, starting with a new setting of 5 will speed up Navigator and allow you to evaluate how this affects your system.
Backing up your registry before making changes is only prudent. Then, if the value you have chosen is too quick for your system, you can easily return to the default setting.
