Without going into reams of detail (but I will if necessary) my 2.9g P4 XP Pc used to boot in a few seconds to the desktop. Since yesterday, it shows the initial screen for about 20 secs, goes blank for 30 secs, then spends a further 10 or so (all aprox) completeing the desktop. I've not loaded any programs, or altered any hardware. Any ideas?

No, I've been avoiding SP2 until others have resolved any problems!

'Restore Points' folder
may be too many for it to search through on boot ???
I had over 2GB of restore points to clean up ;)

Impatient clicking has left 2 threads to this post. I'm hoping it's sorted now. Thanks for the advice though.
