HP xw6400 workstation 2x Xeon 5150 processors 4mb Ram ATI Radeon HD 4350 graphics. Running XP Pro. Getting a problem with startup on sign in after entering password & hit go it sits for ages on that screen eventually it will start to load personal stuff & reach main screen again very slowly. Safe Mode is quick I found a error in the logs 'The HPCUE DeviceDeliveryService hung on starting' I restarted in normal mode still slow & checked the Admin logs the HPCUE.... had started OK. This is a new problem & I'm not aware I have downloaded anything or had any updates Health advisor had no issues, Super anti spyware nothing, BT NetProtect Plus no issues???. I think it has realised I'm looking to update to replacement workstation with Win 7 Pro & is sulking. :)

Use Ccleaner to prevent progs starting automatically - I have stopped everything except the Antivirus with no ill effects.

Try going into Start/Run and type in the box MSCONFIG press enter, o to startup tab remove the tick for the above item that is slowing it down then Apply after rebooting you will get a box pop up put a tick in the left bottom corner box then close it. You can restart anything you stop in MSCONFIG by reversing the above

I can try that with my Pareto Logic Health advisor it has a startup manager. But it is odd that all these programs have been working OK why now does it slow?

In the end I used a mixture of the suggestions & finally went through every startup item & with my laptop checked what each did whether it was necessary to run the system etc. & removed any that were not. This finally did the trick & is 'permanent' rather than the temporary result from msconfig.
