  second best 02:42 31 Mar 2003

i have recently installed 2000pro and although my desktop boots up ok, ususally! it still takes about a minute or more to fully load all the programs. while the icons are all visible, the hdd is still busy with i don't know what, and i can't access any folders til the activity has stopped. this is unusual activity for my system. i had 18gig on my hdd last week befroe a format, and it was quicker that now with only 10 gig installed. any suggestions?
