Default welcome screen delay

Hello there, 6 months or so ago I built a couple of computers, one for myself and one for my family. Both are windows XP Pro but my families computer has a 3+ minute delay on the welcome screen before the user icons appear. I'm fairly sure it wasn't always like this but I haven't had chance to really address the problem properly. Just wondered if anyone had heard of this before, and if so any solutions to it. Its not running any programs in startup it shouldn't be etc etc. In fact it doesn't appear to be doing anything at all during these 3 minutes.
Help is most welcome, Thanks in advance
Michael.

no, nothing like that, NOD32 and adaware keep it all clean. I have a bootlog record if that would help with diagnosis, i shall post it later, got to go to uni now.

Default Re: welcome screen delay

Not to worry now, fixed it. It was a 'DCOM Server Process Launcher service hung on starting.' error. stopped the service and restarted and it worked fine.
Thanks anyway people.
