slow start up?

  levyo1 17:55 13 Jan 2004

All of a sudden my system takes about 3 mins to come to life.Where as it came up and running in about 30 seconds!!I am on xp pro with a AMD1700xp.All it does now is, it goes onto the welcome screen and just waits for about 3 mins,I have never had this befor. Is it possible I have done something I dont know about? Nothing has changed on the system no new programs or anything like that.

Any Ideas:)All will be welcome

Have you added any (or a lot of) new software recently?? Sometimes when software is installed it can be added to the startup sequence - check msconfig (start/run/type msconfig) you can check in here to see what processes are running.
