    recently i started having a serious problem
    whenever my computer starts up or changes users,
    starting programs can take up to 20 minutes.
    i connect to internet no problem
    hit iexplorer icon - nothing
    try and open task manager - nothing
    etc. etc.
    deskstop and start menu work fine
    upto 20 minutes later, bang everything I clicked opens at once.

    I would dearly appreciate any suggestions.

    I run XP
    1.4 intel processor
    512 RAM
    Norton 2004

    Thanks in advance
