I downloaded Tune Up 2006 Trial and did about every procedure on the menu. In the process I found that I had a Canon Multipass moniter that was running in the background an using a consistant 23-35 % of the CPU!!
( I think that is the way to say it, anyhow a bunch of resources)
I have the Canon software to configure my antique MP500 that I use for a FAX/Single sheet copier. That piece of software just kind of snuck in there and never said a word. IT IS GONE NOW
Windows Media Player and SSaver work great. And as a result of running all of the clean up and maint. I have a smokin' system again.
Thank you Kieth for your help, and the mental stimulation that I needed. I think Tune Up 2006 is on the wish list.
