I have an issue on my WinXP box- the hardware is well specified and I am as certain that the system is free of viruses, trojans, nasties etc. Drives are defragged and general housekeeping (registry, caches, cookies etc) is good.

My issue is that applications take forever to load - for example, loading notepad by double clicking a text file can take MINUTES before the notepad is displayed. :blink:

However, if I disable the network on the PC applications load quickly, as expected for a modern Athlon XP based machine.

So, I am thinking that my network settings are at fault. Any :whistling:, anyone?
