I'm having a slow start-up problem, which never used to be a problem. I am running Windows XP SP2. When I startup or restart, the screen goes to black for a few seconds before going to the Log On Page. Once it goes to the log on page, I click my user name. It then takes anywhere from 3 to 5 minutes to load to the state of use. Within one minute from clicking my username, I am brought to Windows Screen, but my background and my icons do not load for another 2 or 3 minutes. During this time period, if I scroll over Start or any other command buttons, my mouse turns into the hour glass. I am receiving no error messages, and once my computer loads completely it seems to be working fine. Though, I think it is running slower than normal in general.

I have no idea where to start, because after numerous spyware and virus scans, nothing has been repaired. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I suggest running Hijack This[link below] then follow the below instructions fully, and post the log in this thread, whereupon it'll be analysed by those-in-the-know here and then appropriate fixes will be suggested..

follow the next instructions on posting the Hijack This log here;

It’s very important that you save the log to its own permanent folder on your hard drive, such as Program Files/Hijack This, or My Documents/Hijack This, (NOT a temporary files folder) or you may loose the ability to undo any changes you make, so that it can create proper back-ups and be able to restore them if necessary.

Close all open windows/and any open web browers and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad. Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.

DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET;- Await further analysis here.
