That may be related to the loading of desktop background. You seem to
use a default Xfce one which would be a bit large for the low memory/cpu
device you have. It might be worth finding a little one.

When using the file launchers (on the desktop), the “start” menu is a
submenu, located under “Applications”.

What is the empty space on your panel? A separator or some
launchers/plugins without icons? Could you try to re-add a start menu in
your panel and see if it works.
