hi, you know that sound when we start windows xP ?, im having this problem, i logon and maybe just 1 or 2 min after the sound "appears"

i can´t do nothing till the sound cames..
any idea of what may be?

Hi zasdfg,

If you have several things starting when your computer boots the starting sound is probably not first priority which may be causing your delay. If the sound isn't important to you, go to Start, Control panel, Sounds and Audio Devices, click on the Sounds tab, scroll down to where it says start windows and replace the sound with (None). You can also do that with the exit windows sound. This would assist in slighly faster booting and shutdown times.

I hope this helps.

i turn off the logon sound , and its not the sound that its interfering with a normal logon..
i just have a few stuff to start up with windows, anti virus and firewall, disconect them both to see if could resove the problem,, but no..
its seems window is doing something and im just able to do what i want when he finished .. thas about 1 minu or something.. strange..i thought of spyware ..but i its clean..maybe a virus .but can´t fine anything
suspicious on the ctrl+alt+del ..

I used to have that problem on my ancient win 98 pc. the sound probably has the lowest priority and if you dont have any spyware/viruses then you probably have too many programs trying to start at startup.

start->run-> type msconfig in the box, go to the startup tab and see how many things you have in there. if you have a lot, google the names to see what programs are responsible and if you feel that you dont need them right away on startup, disable it by blanking the check box beside it. I know you said you only had firewall and antivirus but its still worthwhile to check what else is going on. the most common cause of this problem is too many things starting with windows.
