Applications take about 3 minutes to start up in XP


L

luso

Hi,

(cont. from previous thread)

As I said, my system came pre-installed with XP Media Center Edition. All
updates installed, most 3rd parrty programs removed (have AVG Anti-Virus free
edition), Service Pack 3, 1GB memory, on a Dell laptop.

When I boot up or restart from standby, applications take about 3 minutes to
actually open. After a while, they open a bit faster (only 1 minute waiting),
but every command that opens a window seems to take forever. This has always
been like this as far as I remember, and I did try Dell support but they were
not very good. Will follow Gerry's suggestion to report on the system:

do every so often.

Thanks,

Then *add it* to your previous thread.
No need to 'break up the band'...

The other thread he was in he had piggybacked on (hijacked), and Kayman
told him correctly to start a new one. The poor newbie OP must be
confused by now!

To OP, Kayman was right. You should never hijack an existing thread.
Always start a new one. That being said, don't begin a new thread with
something like "(cont. from previous thread)"! That's confusing and it
will prompt some people to tell you to go back to your original thread
(because they are assuming you initiated the original thread, rather
than hijacked it).

You need to concentrate on recent Event Viewer error reports. I am going
to snip older ones and place the remainder in order so that we can see
the sequence of events.

You seem to have a malware problem. What are your anti-spyware
arrangements?

I would try Spybot S & D -there is a freeware version buried in this

Hi,

(cont. from previous thread)

As I said, my system came pre-installed with XP Media Center Edition.
All updates installed, most 3rd parrty programs removed (have AVG
Anti-Virus free edition), Service Pack 3, 1GB memory, on a Dell
laptop.

When I boot up or restart from standby, applications take about 3
minutes to actually open. After a while, they open a bit faster (only
1 minute waiting), but every command that opens a window seems to
take forever. This has always been like this as far as I remember,
and I did try Dell support but they were not very good. Will follow
Gerry's suggestion to report on the system:

Will also do the remaining disk cleanup and system restore cleanup,
which I do every so often.

Thanks,

Dear Gerry,

Thank you for your help. It looks like it was a combination of old software
(AOL, Corel, DellSupport, McAfee) and Google Toolbar that was slowing things
down. Got the beast at the end by removing them all in Safe Mode and running
several cleanup and spyware software (as you recommended).

Job done. Many thanks.

Luis
