Fresh Install of XP.. Long delays on splash and double clicks?

Hi guys

I formatted my machine using an XP Upgrade CD, followed it through, deleted partitons, created partition, format, inserted Win98 CD and then finished the XP setup with no problems. It came to reboot after installation, and the xp splash screen took 5 or so minutes before loading desktop. I presumed this was just as it was a new install so getting all the drivers etc.

The problem is, this happens on every boot now. It also takes literally 2-3 minutes for the start menu to come up after clicking, or for any program to load after a double click.

Any ideas what can be causing the problem?
