I just installed a new version of Window XP Sp3 and installed all updates from Microsoft and HP. When I go to restart the computer it takes up to 10 minites to complete. This also happens when I shutdown the laptop.
When I first click on restart all the icons go away and the items in the system tray follow. The computer then just sits at the screen with just the background showing and nothing else for about 7-10 mins. I am unsure why this is happening because everything else on this computer is running good. Please help. I am using a HP 530 laptop.
