Default windows xp boot up

When my windows xp boots up the desktop appears with just the mouse and no icons. After about five minutes the icons appear and will finish boot up. Thanks for any help .

Default Re: windows xp boot up

how about some computer specs? when was the last time you ran anti-virus/spyware scans? When did the slow boot start or had it been happening as ong as you have owned the computer?
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64
