Laggy computer when logging in

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 32Bit, 3GB RAM, AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual core processor,

Basically computer will load up fast when booting and even logging in, I have changed settings in msconfig to speed boot, BUT if I lock the computer and log back in it takes around 2-3 minutes for the computer to getting running again just a really big lag especially Google Chrome, when I lock the computer I usually have like 5 programs running WMP, Chrome, Email and maybe steam and xfire running in background.

What is problem? Any tips people..
