XP Pro Hangs on Startup.

By thorpe322 ·
What could cause my XP Pro system to hang for about 1 minute after clicking on my profile and logging in? I have eliminated all un-needed programs from startup, checked the event viewer... nothing seems to help. All I know is my system is at a frozen stand still for about a minute after Winxp loads.

Check the Services that are set to Automatic. There will be some in there that really don't need to run. Personally, I have NOT had much success with the new BITS service running on XP. BITS is involved with the Windows Updating. I don't like BITS one little bit (pun intended). I am keeping it Disabled. It fixed a startup slowdown problem I had.

You pointed me the right direction! Although there was no BITS Service, I went through them all once agian more carefully. Anything that was automatic that I was SURE wasnt nessasary I switched to Manual. After a few reboots I had fixed it. Thanks!
