Computer Hangs

Hi Guys

I have noticed recently that when I start up my pc be it from a cold start or restart it hangs for ages, on average about ten minutes, it then drops into screensaver mode and only then can I log in.Is there any way i can whittle down the length of time or ideally stop it from doing this all together.
By The way my OS is XP.

click here for a list of what services need to run; click here
for what each is called; click here for what is under MSConfig.

Also have a look at what is in the startup folder of the porgram files... unlikely to be anything necessary there.
