Hi everyone, when I log onto my account, my wallpaper appears and so do my icons. Then my taskbar comes up but it is just blue and you cant press anything on it. It stays like this for about 15 seconds to 2 minutes. Also, when I type in my password on the welcome screen and press log in, it stays for a long time saying Loading your personal settings. It takes about 1 minute+ instead of normal which is about 10 seconds+. If anyone can help me with this issue, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Here is the screenshot of the taskbar when it does load:[attachment=3269:Blank_ta...sue__BC_.JPG]

The long wait while loading personal settings can be caused if you have a mapped network drive that is no longer available.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

This can also occur if Windows is looking for any other resource that used to be present but no longer exists. This all depends on what's loading when Windows starts.

I'd suggest that you use MSCONFIG to disable your startup items to troubleshoot this (it's designed as a troubleshooting tool - not as a permanent fix) Here's a link on how to do it: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310560

If you're able to identify a specific culprit, let us know and we'll assist you in permanently disabling it.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I have checked and there are no unwanted/un-required start-up entries.

It routinely takes this sytem about 2-3 minutes to go from boot to desktop available for use...I consider this normal and think it's due to the firewall holding the system in check until it's fully functional.

System closes down in about 20 seconds :thumbsup:.

One thing you might try is to defrag your system drive...fragmentation makes life hard on a system and strange situations can develop.

I have already De fragmented my drive and the firewall is the last thing to load so I don't think it would be that. Maybe if I made a new account and deleted this one could fix the problem?

What spyware/antivirus/adaware are you running? I have notices that some motherboard utilities such as the MSI core cell or Nvida drivers/control centre have caused my older PC to take a few minutes to settle in after bootup.
If all else fails, hit the reset button.

..I am running CA Security Center 2007 which means CA Personal Firewall 2007, Ca Anti-Spy ware 2007 and CA Anti-Virus 2007. I am also using Ad-aware free and Spybot S&D. But I don't think it is malware related.

Have you tried creating another account and logging into that to see if the delay occurs in that?

I had a similar problem a few months back, desktop would take ages to load, I discovered that my profile was corrupt in someway, therefore I created another account, and just copied over my documents, and removed the corrupt one, now no problems.

I have uninstalled my old Internet Security and installed all my new internet security and now the problem is still there but it is only there for 1 second so, it's not really worth fixing that, just for one second, and now as soon as I click on my logon picture, it loads instantly. I guess it was the firewall? Thanks for all of your help. :thumbsup:
