ive been having a problem logging into windows. once in a while, after i tye my password, it will sit on the blue loading screen for quite some time, then if it does show my desktop, its only the background with no start bar or icons. i can CTRL ALT DEL then logout and log back in and it will usually fix the problem, but i dont think i should have to do that.

Try running the following:

Windows One Care Free Scan

Go to Windows Live Onecare Free Scan (using Windows Explorer only)
It will say "Get a free PC safety scan"

Make sure you click "Full Service Scan" in the middle of the page and
not the "Try It Now Free" on the right side.

Allow it to download the Active X components.
Choose "Complete Scan" in the window that opens
Click "Next"
Do not click on anything else that offers you a free trial or to sign up if you live in the US.

Allow it to scan - it may take quite, maybe two hours or so depending on how big your hard drive is and how fragmented your registry and drive are.

After running the above scan, reboot and then look to see how much free space you have on your hard drive.
To accomplish that, double click on the "My Computer" icon on your desktop and then right click on the hard drive, probably C:
Then choose "Properties".

How much free space does it say you have and what is the total size of the hard drive?
