    Are you sure it's not just taking a while to finish loading all the services? If Workstation is enabled that can take a couple of moments to load and everything else waits for it. Are you on a network?

    Otherwise, disable all the services you can, check to make sure there are no programs starting you aren't aware of, and see if that helps.

    when you hit ctr+alt+del, what is it that you are ending?

    There are no services or any thing still running. And I don't end any thing except closing the task manager.:(

    then it does sound like you are hitting that prior to everything loading up. If you have a lot loading up at startup, try removing some of it. Go to msconfig and under startup, stop the things that arent really needed upon startup.

    Start up problems

    I had a problem with start up after the welcome screen a few times and it seems Style XP was causing all my hang ups. Since removing the software no more hang ups. Just an idea as Style XP seems to work for a lot of other people.

    When I start and stop the task manager is well after all else has stoped. I have not used Style XP or any other progs that change the boot or logon pages.PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

    Same problem

    Hi there,

    I can't help, but i have got the same problem. When i startup it takes years to get the main screen. When i hit ctrl+alt+del it popes to the main screen, but i only did this because i waited for 4 minutes and that is much too long. Very strange because a little while ago it was perfect, i don't know what i changes......
