New Install of XP loads a startup or service very slow...

I did a fresh install of XP pro. After login the desktop shows ok, but when I try to open any programs, nothing happens for about a minute until some service or startup finishes. Is there a simple way to tell which on it is?

I am not sure you computer configuration is, If the pc configuration is low, generally it will take time for the pc to boot up fully, suppose you try to open applications before it gets booted up fully it may not respond until boot up process in completed.

It normal for low configuration PC to behave this way.

No AV,

never heard of a low configuration,

All drivers are installed,

One service/startup is hanging... I did MSCONFIG and disabled all of them and everything loaded quickly and ran programs

Increase your page file system, run "msconfig" and remove unnecessary start up scripts or programs and see if there are changes?

Check the Computer Browser service and dependent service like server and workstation service is started.

You can use tools like process explorer to monitor memory usage then decide which is offending service or process.
