A couple of weeks ago, since adding an Administrator password and User Accounts on my XP Pro I started experiencing huge delays in booting up and shuting down my PC. When I click shutdown absolutely nothing happens for about one minute but once it starts it proceeds at a normal rate. On booting up it's the reverse. It boots normally until the desktop background screen appears and then it stops, showing nothing but the background, no icons, no taskbar, and it takes abou a minute before everything pops up. Also, when I try to reboot the computer boots-down all the way and just hangs there and only a manual reset starts it up again.

Anti-virus programs turn up nothing, the Event Viewer shows no anamolies, UPHCleaner from Microsoft,(it checks for any applications not properly releasing resoures), has no effect, neither does System Restore and even Bootvis optimization fails.

Anybody have any suggestions? I'm running a Pentium 4 2.5Ghz with one gig of DDR RAM.
Thanx
