It takes me a split second to enter Excel, Access, Word etc, yet it takes me between 3 seconds to exit (if one application open) or 6+ seconds if more than one application is open.
I have a Pentium 2-400 with 128ram and 6gig empty on hard drive. I have cleaned out temp files, recycle bin, defragged, cleared most tasks running in background using msconfig. Any other suggestions? All else is OK.
