I open task manager and during this time it shows no processes running, system idle is at 99% and CPU usage is at 0%. Then suddenly at about the minute mark, a bunch of processes start running (svchost.exe, ccsvchst.exe, etc) and in no time (less than 5 seconds) the computer runs properly.
I have a dual boot with Ubuntu 10.04 but the problem appeared way before that.
Athlon 7750 processor, 2.71GHz, 2.93GB available RAM, XP 2002 with SP3
Startup has been reduced to the most basic programs and functions.
Any ideas to solve this issue?
