    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. Click on Start/Run, type 'msconfig', then click 'OK'.
    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.

    It could have something to do with dsl.

    If you are not on a network, disable the Workstation service.

    You're welcome :)

    HD - Workstation service is generally the most likely culprit. BITS is a little lower on the list..
