    I have an annoying problem, windows loads normally up to when the desktop picture appears, then it hangs for probably a minute (you cannot do anything with the mouse although it moves around) then it resumes loading as normal and runs normally.

    I suspect it's some sort of indexing or windows is looking for something, how can I find out which program or process is holding things up?

    thanks

    use msconfig from the run command and try turn one thing off at once and reboot till you find the one that causes the hang.
    dont forgot to reenable each one after the reboot.
    just remove one at once till the culprit is identified
