I have an old Gateway Conmputer (5 years). It is running well except it has really become slow. I have cleared all the temporary files, scanned disk & defragmented, closed all programs at startup. When I turn on the computer everything starts up normally. When I double click a folder, such as "My Computer", it takes almost 30 seconds to show the icons. The same goes for "Network Neighborhood."
Any good reason for this to be so slow coming to the screen.
It is not a major problem but wastes much time. Also noticed when I go to copy something on my scanner, it takes forever to find the scanner and then make the copy.
Any help will be appreciated.
