Slow boot. IEXPLORE 99% for 5+ mins.
Posted on 2004-09-05
When I boot into Windows 2000 and get to the desktop while its still loading, the computer slows to a crawl. The task manager reports that IEXPLORE.exe is using 99% of the CPU. It takes the computer literally about 4 minutes to respond to me killing the process in Taskmanager.
This happens on every reboot. If I let the system sit for about 5-6 minutes, the process will kill itself. Afterwards it runs normally.
