You might just have TOO MANY icons and other applications loading at boot time? My wife had similar problems, her desktop was full of game icons. I 'forced' her to remove some, and put some in folders on the desktop named for the type of game. That fixed the desktop problem, but she still didn't have all the folders populate immediately.

If you go to SAFE MODE, less services are started, does it populate fast then?

Then run MSCONFIG and on the STARTUP tab, disable EVERYTHING... and re-boot, see if that helps. You can probably leave your Anti-Virus loading though for safety. If it works fine on re-boot, then start putting the entries back slowly until you find the offending program.

Otherwise it could be your PROFILE that is corrupted or have in problem. No easy way to replace this.

You might have some junk, like TEMP files and such also that needs cleaning? Either open COMPUTER and then right click on the C: drive, select PROPERTIES, and do the DISK CLEANUP and re-boot. No help, next is probably the last resort?

Lastly, maybe a REPAIR RE-INSTALL might help clean out some other junk?
