You may have a virus or trojan. Run a virus scanner (AVG is a free download) and then run SuperAntiSpyware (also free), or similar spyware and virus removal programs.

Run disk cleanup: start>programs>accessories>system tools>disk clanup.

Run defrag: start>programs>accessories>system tools>disk defragmenter.

Also, you may have too many programs trying to start at the same time or one particular program that is jamming things up. You can use Sysinternals "Autoruns," to select which programs will run at start. Here's the link: http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail/Autoruns/1092024321/1?all_reviews

Recreate the Show Desktop icon on the Quick Launch toolbar


To re-create the Show Desktop icon on the Quick Launch
toolbar, follow these steps....

1. Use any text editor (such as Notepad) to create a
file with the following lines:
[Shell]
Command=2
IconFile=explorer.exe,3
[Taskbar]
Command=ToggleDesktop
2. Save the new file as a file named Show Desktop.scf
in the WindowsSystem or WinntSystem32 folder. Note
that Notepad may automatically append a .txt extension
to the file name. Remove this extension if Notepad
adds it. These steps do not work if the file is named
Show Desktop.scf.txt.
3. Quit Notepad.
4. Using Windows Explorer or My Computer, right-click
the Show Desktop .scf file, and then click Create
Shortcut.
5. Copy the new shortcut to the appropriate folder. In
Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows 98, copy the shortcut
to this folder: WindowsApplication DataMicrosoftInternet
ExplorerQuick Launch

In Microsoft Windows NT or Microsoft Windows 2000,
copy the shortcut to this folder: WinNTSystem32
In Microsoft Windows XP, copy the shortcut to the
following folder: WINDOWSSystem32ConfigSystemprofileApplication
DataMicrosoftInternet ExplorerQuick Launch

6. Rename the shortcut to Desktop.
The Show Desktop icon automatically appears on the
Quick Launch toolbar.

Get back the Quick Launch bar Windows 7's new taskbar functions as a program...


Get back the Quick Launch bar Windows 7's new taskbar functions as a program launcher as well as task switcher. As a result, the old Quick Launch bar, the area on the left side of the taskbar that contained shortcuts for frequently used programs, has been banished. However, if you really miss the little applet, you can add it back. Here's how to do it:

1. Right-click the taskbar and choose Toolbars --> New Toolbar.

2 . You'll be asked to select a folder for where the new toolbar should live. In the Folder text box at the bottom of the dialog box, enter this text:
%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch
After you do that, click Select Folder. A link for the Quick Launch bar will be added to the taskbar. It will be on the right of the taskbar, just to the left of the Notification area.

It's not particularly useful docked all the way to the right with no application icons showing, so we're going to have to do a bit of work on it to make it useful. Right-click the taskbar and, in the pop-up menu, remove the check next to "Lock the taskbar." Now right-click Quick Launch and remove the checks next to Show Text and Show Title.

Once you've done that, drag the vertical triple dotted line next to the Quick Launch bar to the left until you expose its icons. To prevent further changes, right-click the taskbar and check Lock the taskbar.

You can now use the Quick Launch bar as you could in Windows XP and Vista, including adding icons to it and deleting them.
