Either you have too many startup items being loaded, or are infected with malware.

Google 'msconfig' and see the malware prevention forum for more information.

Or get StartupCPL 2.8 (zip version) from here, unpack, install, go to Control Panel > Startup and carefully check the items in each tab. Disable the ones appearing suspect or -if unsure- list the items here so we could advise.

Personally I consider StartupCPL a little more friendly than msconfig, but it's all a matter of taste. ;)

-for startup stuff, I've been enjoying "Starter" by CodeStuff (freeware, http://codestuff.cjb.net/, also listed at snapfiles.com, etc)...

-but be sure to tweak the Options, incl. "show advanced"-stuff, properly, for the best (and most complete) results...
