I am running WinXP home with SP2, 1.8ghz, 224mb RAM, The time it takes to get to the desktop with all 7 icons loaded is extremely long, approx 4 / 5 minutes. It loads quite quickly thru to the blue Welcome to Windows screen then take a long time to load form there. It takes approx 1/2 minutes just for the few desktop icons to load.
I have run Ewido, spybot, adware, trojanhunter, ccleaner, registry mechanic Cleanup, but with very little difference.
Can someone offer some suggestions as to how I can get Windows to load at an acceptable pace. ( Could I have a hardware prob)
