After I load my computer and type my password into the welcome screen it
takes 7 seconds to load my background and icon names and start menu and after
that it takes a further 100+ seconds to load icons properley and taskbar.

Could you help. I do a regular Disk Clean, registry clean, defrag, spyware
scan and anti-virus scan. On my taskbar I have a Safley Remove Hardware icon
for my Speedtouch modem, my modem's other icon,Norton Anti-Virus, Ad-Watch
and ZoneLabs ZoneAlarm Security Suite.

Any Suggestions. Help A.S.A.P.

If you recently installed sp2, and you have usb printer fax, or other device,
you may have to de-install the driver using device manager. Need help? Open
up help and support and search for "using device driver" Open it up. Scroll
down to Universal Serial Bus and open the +. Double click Generic Usb Hub.
Open the power tab. Your offending device may be there. Or open other hubs
and check power tab.

When you find your device, open driver tab and un-install it.
Disconnect usb cable for the device. Install your drivers for the
device(from cd). Re-connect cable usb to device. Reboot. And Add Hardware
will recognize the device at boot up.
