    Recently, I've noticed once I booted up to desktop, that I cant open any applications for 2-3 minutes. Before, once I hit desktop I could open up an application within 15-20 seconds. Any ideas?

    Thanks for responses.

    Correcting System Hang at Startup

    If your system hangs about 2 or 3 minutes at startup, where you can't access the Start button or the Taskbar, it may be due to one specific service (Background Intelligent Transfer) running in the background. Microsoft put out a patch for this but
    it didn't work for me. Here's what you do:

    1. Go to the control panel/admin tools/.
    2. Go to the 'Services' tab, find the 'Background Intelligent Transfer' service, disable it, apply the changes & reboot.




    Also if not on a network disable 'workstation' at the same place as above.
