One by one they load individually from a white file to the normal icon. They all flicker once.

It's just Microsoft bloatware in action.

That's normally attributed to graphics driver. Try different versions or use WHQL Forceware.

microsoft lards up their OS's with so many useless 'features' like Aero window pane mode that it takes so long for everything to load because the code is so large and bloated, even if the user has not enabled most of it. microsoft misses obvious optimizations that they could program into the OS and enforce from vendors. An obvious one would to gather the icons of all the task bar and desktop icons into one folder or file with pointers to the programs and to blast them onto the desktop and task bar in a split second, instead of waiting for each program to load itself and offer its icon to the operating system. The registry has gotten so huge and so over-used far beyond its original purpose because (contrary to people's view of Bill Gates) microsoft has always had a narrow parochial vision of personal computing and is forever fighting with backward compatibility to point by point drag itself into the 21st century.
