    Win XP Pro

    Due to a mis-adventure into the registry I had to reinstall XP.
    All went well. I formatted the disk, ran fdisk and checked all
    parameters before proceeding and everything fell into place as
    clean installs should occur except:

    Boot up is extremely slow compared to the previous experience.
    I'm fairly PC competent. Removed the need for passwords and
    typical splashes but one thing now arises that did not before, a
    window displaying 'Please wait' at top and 'Windows is now
    loading' and there is the rub- it seems to hang there of an
    overly long time. Have rug defrag, checked through msconfig,
    checked registry clean up and did CCCleaner to avail.
    What else can I do?
