I am running Windows XP Professional on a AMD 2200XP machine but on startup the computer delays on the welcome screen for at least 1 minute before displaying the desktop. If during this time I press the escape key the desktop appears immediately. The PC runs normally thereafter. Its just so frustrating that I can't fix it. Can anyone help me please.
If you have the whole mcafee package then this could be the problem. I had the problem with this software and it is all becasue of the privacy service (or the spam killer service). disbaling both of these in the services will solve this problem. BUT if you dont have this then I dont know what it is hope I have helped :)
