MS Windows activity bar holds

Windows XP Home, just added 512Mb memory (to the original 256Mb) which works well, and is the correct version for this PC. But during boot-up the Activity bar locks halfway across for about 35 seconds, during this period of hold, there is no hard drive activity.
This did not happen before with the original 256Mb of memory, what could be causing this annoying hesitation?
Thanks,
Spacey.

RAM inconsistencies can cause alsorts of strange behaviour.If the pc runs fine,other than this slight hesitation during boot,offer a thank you prayer to the pc god. :-)
