On a fresh format and clean install of XP, it boots up quick enough, (pIII, 512). The problem comes once it gets to the desktop. Most functions are there, but my network connections, the "my computer" properties, etc. Will hang for a minute or longer. I can wait a full minute or so and everything comes online, but Im sure thats not normal. The MSN messenger also comes alive in my task bar when the network comes on, so Im assuming its somting to do with the statup. But no matter what Startup I do, its the same result. And when I tryed installing Norton, on bootups its disabled. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Are you on a lan; and do you have a nic card installed that is not connected to anything at this time? If so, your computer is looking for a network connection. As to windows messenger, you can set it to not load on startup.

Let's see what's in your startup.
Go to http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/ :

Download StartupList 1.51

After unzipping the file, run it. You will see a text file displayed. Copy/paste the file directly to a reply. To copy/paste, when the file is open, click Edit>Select All > Edit > Copy and then right click on a reply window here and select "paste".
