How much free space is left on your hard drive? Try running scandisk and defrag.
thanks for reply,
I have about 20% free drive space, and use scandisk and defragment utilities 1 or 2 times in a month. any other suggestion?
note: An other thing is that when I login to my account or just press esc button, I see wallpaper but nothing for 15 to 25 seconds.
What do you have running at startup? Click Start>Run and type in msconfig
Click the Startup tab, this is where the start up processes are listed.

Download and install: HiJackThis.

(Always create a Folder for HiJackThis anywhere but your Temp/Temporary Internet Folders or Desktop. A good place to make a folder would be in My Documents, as this is where it will save the backup files needed if there's a problem.)

Open up HijackThis and go to Config->Misc Tools and check the first two boxes there. Now click on the 'Generate StartupList log' button. Post that log in your next post.
I will look to see if you have any malware running on your system
