My computer used to load all programs quickly and took almost no time to load the desktop when logging into windows, but recently all this changed. It now takes around 2-5 minutes to load my desktop when logging onto windows and the taskbar is acting funny (takes a long time to access the start menu and is almost impossible to access the toolbar tray) also it takes an incredible amount of time to load a program. The strange thing is, it seems like nothing is going on in the computer during this time, the CPU usage is around 0-5% and as far as I can tell there are no other processes running in the background, does anyone know how to solve this problem?

I would download an application to see what all runs at startup. codestuff starter is a little more user friendly and Microsoft autoruns will both do the job nicely
