Short and sweet:

BabasChess is a program I use all the time to play chess and only recently it has been taking longer and longer to load the higher the uptime for XP SP3. When XP first loads, the program takes 1 second to load, but if I leave my computer on for several days, it will eventually take 7 seconds to load and use 50% CPU just while loading. Memory usage stays around 15mb no matter what. If spyware and malware and viruses are all ruled out (hypothetically), what else could cause this to happen each time you restart XP?

Assume:

Just defragmented HD, cleaned registry, scanned for malware (KIS 2010, Spy. Doc, Antivir), no other program has same symptoms, minimal programs booting and running in background, memory passed Memtest86

AMD X2 3800
2Gb DDR Memory
8500 GT
Seasonic 500W
300Gb + 250Gb SATAII HD
