Hi all, everytime i reboot my pc, i cant seem
to use anything, when i hoover the mouse over the
taskbar as if to click start i get a busy icon come on and i cant select anything.
it seems to last for about 20 mins & then everything is ok until the next reboot!!
i am running xp-pro.
Look at my previous posts for my pc spec.
The other problem is that my desktop is clean,
nothing on it apart from the recycle bin, so i
have to wait for about 20mins before i can use my pc.
any idears out there?
cheers :)

Hi simonsup, telling us to look at your earlier posts for the spec of your machine is all very good, but how are we to find your earlier posts? It would be easier for you to access your earlier post and cut and paste the spec to this one.

If your computer is busy doing something for 20 minutes, then you really need to find what is happening for all that time. I suspect there is a process started at boot up that is using all your computer resources. You need to look at the startup menu and disable as many processes as possible. It is also worth running Adaware or Spybot to see if there is any malware on your computer.

Take a look in Computer Management; Events Log; and see if is sheds any light on the problem.

It seems from your description, something is trying to load without success!
