I cant for the life of me fix this problem. I start up the computer (With XP SP2) and when I get to the welcome screen I type in my password and then click ok. Heres the problem - it takes about 5 minutes to get from there to my desktop beiong loaded up and its sooooo annoying I cant explain it in words.

Ive sorted out msconfig > startup and its pretty clean. Ive defragged LOTS of time. Scanned for viruses. Nothing has shown improvements.

Its a Dell 4500 2.8Ghz 1GB RAM etc etc so its not a slow machine. I dont want to have to reinstall my OS just because of that problem ... can someone tell me what I can do ?

thanks

Do you have any media inserted into CDroms/dvdroms..etc?...that can slow the startup

Windows is apparrently having a hard time resolving something....drivers?...hardware?

Some tests you may want to perform just to try and isolate the problem...

Go to device mananger and disable unneeded hardware one at a time and reboot...if better then you've found the culprit...if not, reenable the disabled hardware and move on to next one...

Have you checked your Event Viewer logs?

start there..(event viewer)

I would be especially interested if you have any indexing service errors.

I've found this problem to occur mostly in three cases:

corrupt profile files
bad index file
bad spot on the harddrive

If you see something about the indexing service, or Ci, go to
start > run
services.msc
enter

look for INDEXING SERVICE, double click, hit the STOP button, and change startup type to DISABLED.

Reboot. Does the problem persist?

If nothing shows in the eventviewer or problem persists, ,

start > run
cmd
enter

type chkdsk /r
say yes to run at next boot, then reboot

Take a long walk, as this will take a while to complete.

Indexing is already off
chkdsk didnt improve anything.

Should I copy paste event viewer here after a fresh restart ?

thanks
