If you have a working profile and can login with a different user....You could delete the prefetch information from all profiles.  Here is a link to the "how to" on that subject ... http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/Gaining-Speed-Empty-Prefetch-XP.html

If that does not help, then try deleting and re-creating your profile (assuming you have a working profile to login with).

If you are connected to a Windows server network, not having DNS pointing to the proper DNS server will cause it. If using Active directory, ALWAYS point to the internal DNS server of the domain.
Also, download and install User Profile Hive Cleanup Utility. It helps alot.
