    My problem is somewhat similar to Budrash's posted below. I have a Dell Inspiron 8200 running windows XP. On initial startup, after logging on with my user name, my system seems to hangup, sometimes for as long as 30 to 45 seconds. However, after this initial hangup, everything runs fine. I don't remember installing or updating any software coinciding with when this problem began. I run spybot routinely. My hijackthis results are below. Any advice?

    Just a thought,but have you thought about disabling startup items that you don't need to start on bootup.Having too much stuff in there can slow your system down dramatically.The only things I allow to start on bootup on my machine are my anti virus and firewall.

    Also go here:http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm
    and check out the service configurations,there are a lot of services that you can disable to help your system run better and faster

    Steve, as my machine is booting, in the top right hand corner, it gives the option of going into 'setup' or some boot menu. When I go to 'setup' there is an option of enabling 'quick boot'. See if that is set for a quick boot. Not all system bios are the same, but it is worth the look.
