Win XP Pro SP1 When I click on restart the computer shuts down okay but takes an absolute age to restart. Up to half an hour sometimes before everything is on the desktop and ready to use. Even then the mouse pointer jerks it's way round the screen and I have to use the Shut down option, leave the computer off for about 5 minutes and then boot up again. Using Shut down and leaving it for a few minutes works perfectly okay, the machine starts up and is ready to go in just a couple of minutes. I have Adaware, Spybot and Spyware blaster. I use Ccleaner and Window washer. I have Zone Alarm and I use kapersky AV. I defrag reguarly and in every other aspect I have a lean clean machine. It's just this restart thing that's the problem. Any ideas guys?
