I have Windows XP SP3, and after I login, I receive a blank screen for about 6-7 minutes. Nothing much appears in Task Manager during this time, then suddenly a new batch of processes appear, then the desktop appears.
I have avast! antivirus, Zone Alarm firewall, and I regularly scan with stinger. The PC is a standalone laptop.
Can you tell how to go about troubleshooting this, or the causes?
