Hi Right after loggin in XP, I have to wait for ages till explorer.exe loads and starts working, so I don´t see the task bar nor the desktop itself. If I open the task manager I can see the explorer there, but not really doing anything. After a while it comes back to life and everything continues OK. I´ve run kasperky, Spybot and Adaware with no results. If anybody´s got any idea it would be more than welcome. Cheers.
