    I installed the latest updates of Xp, and suddenly, after restarting, the performance dropped only in loading Xp. In details, the speed of loading windows is ok, until i choose my account to log on, here, it takes even more time than my old computer used to take (It takes like 3 minutes, so i can start to use the taskbar!!!), plus, not all system tray programs appear in the system tray (although they are functioning as the sound icon), and i checked in the start up msconfig section, and i found them all ticked, nothing wrong. And, they randomly not appear, even if i reconfigure each program icon to appear (and i find them already configured to appear, but i just redo it).

    This might seem a trivial problem, but this is a frustration sharing, more than a problem solving, as i am sure that what caused this was a windows update dammit! This is incredibly stupid, stupid, stupid lol!

    Here is the history of my updates:

    The problem happened just after i restarted for these updates. And, i actually removed the IIS from windows components to try a "Therapeutic Test", but it didn't work: still this performance drop at loading windows.

    Oh: my xp is sp2 pro edition.
