Unfortunately, that is not normal.
Now, apart from the desktop icons delaying to appear, how is the overall performance of your operating system? Is it running smoothly or is it slow?

Open Task Manager and from Startup tab disable programs you don't want it to start when you login to Windows OS.
Fragmentation makes your hard disk do extra work that can slow down your computer. Disk Defragmenter rearranges fragmented data so your hard disk can work more efficiently. Disk Defragmenter runs on a schedule, but you can also defragment your hard disk manually.
To defragment your hard disk
1. Open Disk Defragmenter by typing dfrgui.exe into Search charm.
2. Under Current status, select the disk you want to defragment.
3. To determine if the disk needs to be defragmented or not, click Analyze disk. Once Windows is finished analyzing the disk, you can check the percentage of fragmentation on the disk in the Last Run column. If the number is above 5%, you should defragment the disk.
4. Click Optimize Button.
Disk Defragmenter might take from several minutes to a few hours to finish, depending on the size and degree of fragmentation of your hard disk. You can still use your computer during the defragmentation process. But I advice you to not to use computer while defragmenting the hard disk for better result. For better Disk Defragmenter use Perfect Disk or Diskeeper they can defregment page file, registry hives and NTFS/FAT file system at boot time.
The Prefetch directory has one additional salutary function when used in conjunction with the built-in defragmenting tool. Every three days, during idle times, this utility rearranges program code, moving it to the outside of the disk to make it more efficient when loading (to force Windows to perform this optimization without having to do a full defragmentation, use the Defrag.exe command with the /b switch. For instance:
1. Open Command Prompt as administrator.
2. Type Defrag c: /b press Enter key.

You should defragment even its 2% fragmented make sure you execute Defrag c: /b command, about computer starting slowly, start Task Manager and from Startup tab disable programs you don't want the program to start when you login. Also uninstall all malware software to see problem get resolved.
