Did it start immediately after SP2 installation or even before that ?

Once the my computer gets displayed , what happens if you close it and open it immediately . Does it display fast the second time. If it does  then I donot see any issue as your process might get settled in cache for windows to display faster..

Adding or removing a program may generate Event ID 7023
