xp pro taking ages to load up?

I've recently re-installed xp pro and its taking ages to load up......The desktop appears ok but the music that accompanies windows startup sounds about 2 minutes after the desktop appears.
The norton 2003 antivirus/firewall icons take about 5 minutes to appear in the taskbar which of course is locking the system up for these 5 minutes.

Spec is 2400xp cpu/ 1256MB ddr266/ti4600 video/msi ILSR nforce2 mobo

any ideas appreciated
