After I startup my PC and to a lesser extent after a restart my PC runs very slowly for the first couple of minutes.
After my pc starts and all the startup programs ect.. have loaded my PC still funs slowly for a while. For example if you open internet explorer you would have to wait about 30 seconds for it to load and a further 30seconds for the connection box to appear.
Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this?
BillEmm. My PC is home built. 2100XP Athlon processor, 512MB RAM, 120GB hard disk, Windows XP (with SP1 installed), IE version 6.0.2. At startup I have Norton firewall and systemworks running. As well as c-media mixer,my modem status icon and the Stasus for my HP printer and the regular junk that windows has in the startup as default.
