Running Slow at Start up

  Fosroc 19:43 16 Jan 2004

All was well untill i tried to format a CD-RW using Nero 5.5 Incd It would not format giving a error of 00a8-005-0064-0000 after ten to fifteen mins.
The computer (with XP Home) started to freeze, I deleted all of Nero's programmes, which has given me control again BUT when I start the computer all goes well upto the desktop then I have to wait 3 to 4 mins before I can open any programmes. The screen saver is also running "jerky".
I have tried using restore but that is not working ( restoration incomplete your computer cannot be restored to:)

click start run and type msconfig and go to start up items tick selective start up and if it boots normally go through addding one by one til you hit the problem device and untick it.
