For no apparent reason, when I boot or reboot, the Welcome screen freezes for 3 minutes - then it copmletes its routine. I looked at the Event Viewer but cannot understand it. Any ideas, please?

Hello maxmeg =)

try going to Start>Run>msconfig>Startup and click on Disable All
then in Services section, tick Hide Microsoft Service, and then untick all third party services
restart and now check if same delay ??
if No then re-enable each application and service at a time to trace out the culprit ones !!
Also run Disk Cleanup, Chkdsk and Defrag on ur hard drive to make sure all is well on it :)
