Hello all, i have windows XP SP3 and at the moment i seem to be having problems with my programs either not opening or taking along time to open. In programs i mean things like control panel, that does open but if i click on something like initernet options, it just doesnt open up, or if it does after several minutes, then it fails to respond to any commands!
I've done ccleaner and spybot, trying to do a defrag but it wont work either!
Any ideas please?

Get some decent security programs.Spybot will not stop a lot.Maybe right click Local area connection and press repair and see if it comes up with a DNS problem.
