My cleaning didn't seem to make things faster, but might as well get the hardware cleaned while the software is getting a scrubbing!

Attempting Repair without the CD
Before we make any changes, please create a restore point and call it Dial-a-fix. To create a system restore point, go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore
Now download Dial-a-fix from http://fileforum.bet...ll/1131569373/2
When you download it, double-click on it to extract all of its files. Then open the folder it creates. Double-click on the file called Dial-a-fix.
In the bottom-right hand corner, where it says Registration Center, check ALL of the boxes. Now to the left of that, where it says Unregister objects first, check that. Now click on GO. It will run the fixes.
Reboot your computer when it is done and see if your problem still exists. If so, move on to the next section:
Something else to try
I noticed Google Desktop referenced in the Filemon log. Now that may be absolutely nothing, but it can't hurt to remove it and see what happens.
Use Add/Remove Programs to accomplish this. Reboot and see if your problem is still there.
Doing a Windows XP Repair
You will need an XP CD in order to do this. If you're not sure how to do a repair, check out the following link: http://www.geekstogo...ws-XP-t138.html
If you have problems, here is an alternate way to repair XP:
Alternate XP Repair Method
Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system. After running XP Repair you will need to install all Windows Updates and possibly your video card driver.

Hopefully one of my first two suggestions will work. If not, there is one other thing we could do besides a repair, which may work with your wife's CD. Let's see what happens with the first 2 suggestions before we go any further.

I did a search on his tips page and there was nothing about "unregister."

I ran the older version, too. It stopped near the beginning of its process and gave me this message:
"There was an error while registering the object C:\WINDOWS\system32\appwiz.cpl (with flag(s): "/s /i"). This is most likely caused by a corrupt object or missing/corrupt dependency. if you received an error about a missing file/module, it means that the file cannot be registered (missing dependency, or should not be registered).
"The generic Win32 error returned (which is not the same as the RegSvr32 error code) is: Access is denied. Win32 error code: 5
"Visit the dial-a-fix tips page for additional information."
