  freefx 17:13 10 Mar 2006

The Log on screen is taking ages to come on after the Windows Logo is displayed. Took an average of 90secs in between. Wopnder what are being loaded during time. And how can i find out? Only 2 programs are configured to load at startup at Msconfig, ie Zone alarm and Incd. win.ini and system.ini are disabled.

Please help
