You've asked this in the Microsoft ADP and Microsoft Works zones ... you'll certainly get better responses if you ask the mods to review your question and suggest some other zones to move this into. Use the Request Attention link to do this.

How long does it take after you boot for the DriveBusy lite on your computer to become intermittent or go off for a period of time?  Do you attempt to open an application before the above happens.  Press Ctl+Alt+Del to bring up the task manager after your desktop appears and monitor the CPU Usage and number of Processes during the boot phase.  Without any keyboard activity, my CPU usage is often below 5%.
