explorer always busy

i am running M.E. and have just loaded mcafee. my computor is really slow loading and at everything lately ( i have upgraded to word 2002 and it hates me and does not respond most of the time, 1 may go back to word 2000). when my computor is on standby it is still working constantly (the noise is driving me crazy) then when i go to use it it takes ages to respond if at all.
sorry this message is so jumbled but i seem to have a mind much like my system.

Go into Word, File/Search, click on Search Options in the right hand pane and tick "No, do not enable indexing service".

This may be only part of your problem, however.

Thanks for that info, which i have done, not sure if it has made too much difference yet, anymore ideas ?
