    When I log into XP (Clicking on my personal settings icon)it takes over a minute to go to my desktop. I've tried everything I can think of to speed it up. Nothing works! Any ideas?

    1 minute?...WOW I WISH.
    Anyway,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.

    Thanks, but tried startup changes (Also tried before) with no new results. Blackviper appears to be down tonight. Any new ideas would be appreciated. Guidojb
