hi keith,
just posting a follow up since my last visit. on the day it started working properly--and if you forgot, it was running at 100% on teh task manager and the temps were high. like i said, it started to run normally and the task manaager was at idle.

i did realize that day mcafee sent out an email about a critical patch that needed to be installed, because something was compromised--and mcafee said that would take care of persons who were having pc issues. so i think that patch helped, because its been running great since that day of the patch. go figure...

HOWEVER, i still notice my emails open slowly. it receives the emails and downloads it okay into the inbox, but when i try to open it, if it has only text, it is normal. once it has pictures, like for an airlines email or one from a rental car agency, it will take at least 30 seconds to a minute to open and load properly to view. i use microsoft office outlook 2003.

aloha!

Have you run Office or Microsoft Update recently?

Did it slow down around then?

i cannot say if it was around an update. the updates are set to download automatically, like the big one MS had today. but i do know emails with pictures have slowed down substancially when it is tried to be opened.

This mentions some of it

This issue may occur if the following conditions are true:

• The e-mail message is in HTML format.

• You have lots of entries in the Restricted Sites list in Internet Explorer.

Note This condition can occur if you install some third-party tools such as Spybot, IE-Spyad, or SpywareBlaster
