Windows XP hanging after login #

Upon logging in to Windows XP, the Volume icon would appear in the system tray (yes, I like calling it "the system tray" - so does Microsoft - OK, well, not always) and then nothing else would happen for about two or three minutes. During this time, the System Properties and Network Connections windows would not open. Finally, the wireless and wired network icons would appear with a flurry of disk activity. This unhappy state of affairs was solved (after several frustrating hours) by simply disabling the Workstation service.
