Logging into Windows XP taking an age

Specs: Windows Vista
Hi, Logging into Windows XP takes about 20 minutes. The back drop comes up as does the icons. But you can not click on anything to bring it up for about 20 minutes.

But, this only happens once a day. If you was to reboot the PC during that day and log in, it would be instant. So it's just the first time you log in!

any ideas?
I've cleaned up the PC registery, startup, virus checker etc...

You posted an OS question in the Hardware Forum. Are you running XP or Vista? Your post lists both.

Is this a Work computer connected to a network/domain? Or is it a home computer?

Does this happen for all users?
