I am running windows XP, which was fine, but for some reason on start up certain programs do not respond, system restore, microsoft money to name but a few, but most programs OK. After a couple of minutes everything is OK, system restore does not cure this, I have had this problem before and the only way I could get round this was by doing a full restore with my rescue disk

You're not the only one to suffer from this, the system is busy doing something and is ignoring you until it finishes. It may be a program you have installed that checks for updates or something similar, such as an e-mail client checking for mail too frequently or having trouble connecting. Have a check as to what you have running and try disabling each in turn until you find the culprit.
