You have background programs running like may be a screen saver, disable it them

Check what is running in the background. If XP right click on task bar for the System tasks

are you using ZoneAlarm ? This has known issues click here
with Perfectdisk and will stop the boot scan from completing. If this is the case you can use a version with an earlier engine ie. 61 737 000.
