Hi when logging in to my xp account i have to wait at least 2 minutes, the welcome scrren just shows "loading user settings". I looked at my user profile in the system settings and noticed that my user profile for my account was 0.98GB. why is this so big and would this be effecting the log in speed? If so, how can i reduce this to a more acceptable level.

try running bootvis (google for it), which will check whats happening when you boot up
