I'll tell you, I'm not even seeing a proper page right here at "geeks to go!" It's a white background.
Especially slow to open is my email Outlook Express, Firefox and IE.
Once the computer is started there's a wait of 5 minutes+ before anything will open. Everything seems frozen. After the 5 minute wait I can open applications as usual but still OE and the browsers are very slow to open. Half a minute+.
But this doesn't look like a Malware issue so far, does it? I'll take a flying guess that it's the registry: missing entries?
It's a Dell XPS 400, a year old as of June this year. Running Windows XP.
Suggestions desperately welcome.
P.S. I have now run HighjackThis and saved both the logfile and the uninstall list. On further thinking, I'm suspicious that I may have uninstalled something along the way in the past week that's necessary for these apps to open properly. I know this is not supposed to be the place to copy and paste the logfile and uninstall list, but if these are requested here just let me know.
