Extremely slow response time in My Computer and look-in and save-in dialog boxes
Posted on 2004-11-22
Problem: When I click on the My Computer Icon the paint brush appears and takes several minutes to display my resources/drives and file folders. Additionally, when I am working in any application and click on the save-in or look-in windows dialog box it takes several minutes to open the folder. Sometimes the system will time out and I get a "Not Responding" error message. This is killing my productivity.
Self diagnosis: Ran both Ad-aware and Spybot to remove any spyware. I ran my Norton anti-virus with current update as of today. My system seems to be spyware free and virus free.
This problem seemed to appear after installing an hp psc 2510 photosmart all-in-one printer/scanner/copier.
I installed the printer as a network resource via my linksys router.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. This is my first post so hopefully I have provided the necessary info.
Thank you in advance!!!
