How long to you being able to do work with the computer as above speeds do not mean anything

i know but as soon as i type my password in to logon it takes ages! before it only took at leat a few seconds to log in and the taskbar never used to freeze for a minute on startup!

I have recently had a similar problem on a newish computor, originally almost instant 7 seconds for the pre check and then almost instant to the select user.
uninstalling the unwanted ebay has restored almst back as it was. So perhaps you need to look at what bis starting up.

uninstalling the unwanted ebay toolbar has restored almost back as it was.

Have you looked in Start\Run type MSCONFIG press enter look in Startup Tab for things loading at Start. Some of these load Icons in System tray. Also check Start\Programs\Startup
