Just upgraded to athlon xp1800, (reinstalled 2000) but I get an extremely long wait of looking at a blank light blue screen before I am able to acually login (approx 2mins).

Cheers

Correcting System Hang at Startup

If your system hangs about 2 or 3 minutes at startup, where you can't access the Start button or the Taskbar, it may be due to one specific service (Background Intelligent Transfer) running in the background. Microsoft put out a patch for this but it didn't work for me. Here's what you do:

1. Click on Start/Run, type 'msconfig', then click 'OK'.
