I'm having a problem whereby on starting my PC I get stuck on the welcome screen for about 30 seconds, then icons on the desktop take a long time to load (about 30 seconds). I can see the wallpaper and mouse pointer but no icons. I've run full virus and spyware scans and i'm totally clean. I did change an option in the registry to make windows shut down faster but I don't think that would cause the problem. I have also been getting a bsod at random times with ndis.sys, I don't know whether this has anything to do with it...?

Is this the same system as HERE and if so when did the present issue start?
Is there any error code or stop code with the BSOD?
Did you by chance update a video driver just prior to this issue starting?

Yeah, it's the same system and the problem started earlier today. The BSOD says DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Nope, I haven't updated my video drivers.
