Looking for a little inspiration.
I use a Dell Laptop for my home PC running Windows XP Pro.
Its been running really slow recently (only on my profile though so its probably all the crap I have running on the thing ) but this morning things appear to have gotten worse.
When booting the laptop up, everything seems fine until the two icons are presented for me to click and sign in (one login icon for me , one for the missus).
Clicking my icon results in a 20 - 30 second delay before the small box opens to input my password (normally this would happen instantaneously)
Pressing enter, the laptop continues to boot but after waiting 10 minutes staring at my desktop with the wallpaper loaded but nothing else. IE No Icons, No Taskbar, nothing I thought it may be worth a quick post in here.
Doing a CTRL-ALT-DEL at this stage does nothing either so I just have to physically turn the thing off.
It seems that its just running Sloooooooooooow, I have a feeling if I left it 30 minutes I might eventually see my icons and the rest of my desktop but something ain't right
