Slight 'pause' starting program getting longer

  duplo 19:20 26 Apr 2003

My spec is:

Atlon 2200 on and Nforce 1 MOBO. 512RAM, 120GB (20-50-50 partition) and a 40GB HD.
XP installed on 20GB partition on 120Drive, 2K on 40GB drive.

In XP For some reason over the past few days my system seems to hang for a few moments when I start programs. This never happened befor, the install is fairly clean. It happens with almost all prgrmas, from IE to Games.

My drive is regularly defragged?.And I have just run a Virus Scan which showed nothing (I have the lates downloads).

I installed some updates a few days ago (automatic updates) and I thought I may be those, although I am unsure.

Today I was using 2000 briefly and when I went to shut down it froze, when I re-set, I got a Bios check sum error, I re-set again and it started OK. I recieved a check sum error once befor on this system a few months back, when I was installing W2K.

Any ideas, I'm in the midst of UNI work and would like to know what it could be...
