Desktop reacts slow
Posted on 2006-04-05
5G HDD (Defragged)
System is clean of malware and viruses.
All Temp files cleaned.
Issue: This systems boots to the desktop and then D-i-e-s. It is five minutes before the hard drive
stops activity and I have normal use of the mouse. Attempting to use the mouse after log in results in
jerks and stops. I have edited the msconfig Startup and removed everything except the AOL,
Calendar Reminder and McAfee system tray icons.
The OS was reloaded without effect.
I need a solution that will speed up normal desktop functions after log in.
I'm thinking of using a registry cleaner on the OS. But, I've also read many reviews stating registry cleaners do little if any good. I haven't seen any hard proof of performance increases.
If you have suggestions concerning this I would like
to hear them.
