Windows Startup?

  tanzanitre 10:10 01 Feb 2004

My pc hangs at the desktop when i turn the pc on for a couple of mins until i hear the windows music,it then takes a further couple of mins before my startup items load,its a bit strange.

I done the msconfig and theres 8 items at startup could one of these be causing the problem?

Could you possibly tell me wether i should be opting for Normal,Diagnostic,or selective startup in msconfig?

Thanks so much!

selective startup will be selected when you untick some programs under the startup tab.

What operating system are you using?
