Hi
I run XP Home Ed SP2 on my home pc. Myself and my wife have user accounts.
When i login to my account it takes for ever for the desktop to appear and all the automatic programs etc to start up (i use sophos antivirus & EZ Firewall). I cant even get taskmanager to appear until everything has loaded. I have to go for a smoke while waiting for it to finish.
My wifes login however is instantaneous - everything appears quickly and ready to go in no time.
I dont understand this - i assumed the same programs were running cos they are installed on the psame pc.
Is there a program i can run to show me what is loading from the log on screen so i can compare between the two user accounts?
or can anyone suggest something to quicken mine up?
any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated
Thanks

Never assume!


Get the trial version of Ewido and install it

The start the program, select analysis, then startup, then save report. Do this for both accounts,

Post the results and we'll take a look

By now You've probally read some other forums, seeing that a lot of people have simular problems as you.

I can see scumware running on your login...

My advice, is to follow the steps outlined Here

You'll be downloading a piece of software (called hijackthis) with will aid in the resolution, but follow the steps outlined in the link above.

Then post your hijackthis log.

One thing i noticed the extra context menu items - dapextie - i removed the download accelerator plus software searched for dapextie but couldnt find it so ive no idea why this is running?!?

But in saying that do you know of any similar software which can speed downloading and allow resume - i am one of the sad people with dialup rather than broadband and any software which can resume where the download broke off would be great.

Thanks for looking at this for me - hopefully you can help.

Philip
