I have had xp for a while but for almost all the time i have had it when i start my computer up there is a problem!!!

Everything seems fine and I log on as usuall

But when it seems to have loaded correctly the taskbar at the bottom of the screen just doesn't work !

when the cursor is over it it display the busy icon and no buttons can be clicked on.

it sorts it's self out after a couple of mins but those couple of mins means it takes ages foro my comp to start up fully !!!

I have disabled most programs that start up automatically so i don't think that a program is taking ages to load (but it still could be).
I have no customizing tools that ahve changed the taskbar.


please help !!!!!

any ideas ???

I have a a lot of processes running when i do ctrl-alt-del...could someone tell what basic ones i should have running

Do you have a network? What kind of internet connection do you have?

Whats your computer specs, and what programs do have loading up at logon?

Yeah, if you're running on a network, or if you have a network card of any description, this will slow down the boot-up sequence considerably.

Just a stab in the dark, but it *might* be your video card drivers, although I think that the chances of that are small. Its a start I guess.

Usually, something like this is caused by a service thats having problems starting up. In fact devldr32.exe (Live soundcard) could be causing this. I'm not familiar with nhksrv.exe, so if you have any idea what that is, please post it.

What SB Live drivers are you running? If your running AudioHQ at startup, try disabling it.
