Slow Startup after installing SP1

  Rhuddlan 18:22 12 Dec 2003

I have XP Home and Packard Bell i design 170+ and since installing SP1 a few days ago, when the desktop screen appears, the items in the taskbar seem to take up to about a minute to appear, before SP1, they only took around 5 seconds, I have my printer icon as well as NIS & NAV, anyone know if this has something to do with SP1 and is there a way to which I can speed up to how it was before this update, thanks for any help give, and a Merry Christmas to everyone.

Defrag your hard drive...

Maybe MSCONFIG click here

...and Indexing Service?

Already defraged both of my hard drives and used disk cleanup and checked both for errors, also checked msconfig and 3 of the items I want to load are ticked to load, but still a long startup
