I have been happy with my setup for a while now but startup has slowed down a lot. I have installed and dumped loads of stuff but dont really want to wipe and start again. I get to the desktop and then things load for about 2 mins before the hourglass goes away and everything is ok. I am a little nervous about deleting things that may or may not be important. I have run a number of spyware progs and removed any that were detected. I run norton systemworks and regscrub and regcleaner. I have taken some screenshots of the processes in taskmanager in the hope that you can spot something wrong going on.
