Yesterday, after removing some of my installed applications, I noticed some changes to my computer. First of all, when loading Windows XP, it would ALWAYS perform a check on my second hard disk, no matter if the computer is properly shut down or not. The other (more serious) problem is that it takes a lot of time (2 minutes) from logon to displaying windows explorer. Before I modified my system, Windows Explorer would instantly appear after logon.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

What is running in "Run,msconfig,ok,startup"?
I would download and install shareware version of jv16 Power Tools and use the first screen which is registry and see if there are any left over entries from the programs you uninstalled. there usually are and that's why this program should be bought by all, it's an invaluable tool. www.jv16.org

I know that nothing strange (or new) is running on startup. As for the Registry, I use Registry Mechanic, and it doesn't detect any error. Any other suggestions?

You use Registry Mechanic, say no more I certainly will be of no help here....after using that I have only found reformat and clean install successful.

If on booting the system checks the second hard drive I would back up my entire system or at least the second drive and prepare for a new hard drive to replace the second drive. There has to be a reason for the Windows to keep checking the second hard drive and I think your hard drive is headed for a not working condition.
