I notice there is a slight "lag" of 2-3 seconds after Windows XP SP2 successfully starts up, is that normal?
I've got system restore turn on , could that be the cause?

I'm not sure where you mean you get the lag. Is it just after it gets to the desktop, or all the time?

it freezes upon successful start up of windows, everytime. Say when I doubleclick on My documents icon immediately after windows completely starts itself, it doesn't appear after that 2-4 seconds.

It could be that not all services are fully running when you op My Documents, or possibly that your anti virus software is kicking in to action.

You could try disabling System Restore to see if that makes any difference, it is possible that this is the cause.
