I've been having problems w/ this WinXP pro pc lately - very slow. I'll click on any app and it will take upwards of a minute to open. If I click on a browser, ditto. When the page does come up, it draws it gradually. This is a work PC and we have a T1 connection. The PC is a Petnium III, w/ 512RAM.
It's NOT slow in safe mode though.
What I've done is formatted it (twice!)
I also check the task manager when I open a window and I don't see anything weird going on when I start any app/browser.
Some way I can narrow down to a driver or a service?
