Slow response after reload of Windows98SE

I had to reload my total system, a  IBM Aptiva (2138-E76). The only change I made, was to add a second disk drive. This is being used for backup and to store pictures. This drive is a secondary drive off the motherboard controller.
     When I right click on an Icon, say to check out "properties", it takes four to five seconds to come up. I realize that it's not a big deal, but it is taking a LOT longer that it did before. I may have changed something in the operating system before, but I can't remember. Also, when I am on the internet, using IE 6, it takes a lot longer to load a web page that it did before. I realize this can change from day to day, but I have been using the web for five years, and since the reload I have noticed the difference. If anyone has some suggestions, I'll be glad to try them. I should state that I haven't anned any new programs except I did install Norton System Works 2003, and I had 2002 on before. Also, I have only loaded about 25% of the programs on my system that I had on before. Once I am into a program, it seems to run as fast as it did before, it is just getting the program started.

Greetings, jtalbot_2000!

Look at your anti-virus program. See if it is checking for virus everytime you open a file. Temporarily disable it and see if you got your speed back.

Look at other background programs. Disable one at a time and check for speed.

Best wishes, war1

I did what you suggested. The anti-virus program was OK, so I first disabled all programs, and I got the speed back. After a little trial and error, I determined it was csinjext.exe. This is Norton's Clean Sweep. With this off, I have no problems. Thanks .
