boots up very slowly,(5-6 minutes) on a Dell Optiplex,  uses "Virtual Memory" (Hard-Drive) almost immediately.  reboot doesn't help, Pentium-64, 32megs memory.  I think it is running some things in the background but dont know how to find out what it may be.  I've tried "Ctrl-Alt-Delete" to see the task manager there are about 10-12 entries.  I'm not sure what needs to be running and what doesn't
