This PC - running XP Home - is now taking an age to log on the user. The Desktop appears, but hard disk activity continues for another 2 minutes or so, during which time it also tries to access the Floppy Drive. This didn't used to happen.

The HJT log below has been done immediately after removing the entries using Spybot and Ad-Aware. No critical Windows updates are pending.

Grateful if you could take a look at the HJT log. Thanks

Nothing's jumping out at me. Try downloading the latest version of Hijack This 1.98.2, and post a fresh log.

Your log was clear. I'd suggest using this utility to inspect your programs loading at startup, and remove any that are unneeded.

Startup Inspector for Windows is a Windows™ platform software that helps Windows™ user to manage Windows™ startup applications. On www.windowsstartup.com, there are more than 3,900 known programs in the database. Startup Inspector for Windows can thus provide a consultative information on the programs that are running at your Windows startup process. Whether a program is necessary to the system, or is the program a spyware.

Also, 256MB is about the minimum we'd recommend for XP. 512 will greatly improve overall performance.
