Default Windows XP Service Pack 2

I recently downloaded windows XP service pack 2 and now my start tool bar takes a whole minute to boot up when my desk top appears. I suspect that it is because need to upgrade my video card to a direct X 9 to run the service pack efficiently. I have a GE Force FX 5700. I like what the service pack has done my desktop has more space and the security is increased. If worst comes to worst I'll uninstall it and do a system restore.

Help is appreciated,
thanks

ASUS ...don't remember the make
amd athlon xp 2400
GE Force FX 5700

it has nothing to do with your graphics card, use autoruns or msconfig to check your startup items.

sp2 slows your system down to give you better security
