I'm running Windows XP Professional. Everything worked fine until installed SPYCHECKER. Since then there is a delay of about 3-4 minutes when I attempt to access Freeserve for my E-mails through Mailwasher or Outlook express. Unistalled Spychecker, but still the same delay. ALSO. After the latest virus scare I downloaded and installed an MS patch to help increase security from this latest virus.
This delay also occurs when, after starting up my computer, I attemt to immediately access MY COMPUTER.
You may find that, although you THINK that Windows has fully loaded, this is not the case. Sometimes you will find that the hard drive is still working for some time after the egg-timer vanishes. Bear in mind that, whilst the load-up is still running, you cannot do much if anything. Take a looks at msconfig to see what is loading and see if you can reduce this.
