XP Pro Very Slow - New Install
Posted on 2009-07-14
last week I replaced my hard rive with a 500 Gb WD drive and did a clean instal of XP.
I'm hooked up to a 6 meg DSL line and have good access.
Windows SP3 and Office 2007 is installed.
Running Symantec Corp AV 10.1.8.0.
When I open Outlook 2007, it takes about a minute to check email for two pop3 accounts on my web server. With the previous install, it took about 10 seconds to check these accounts.
I have 2 Gig Ram, 2- 250 gig partitions on my hd with 80% free space on both. I have scanned for spyware. Virtual memory is managed by Windows. Any ideas on why outlook and Windows in general is so slow?
Thanks for your suggestions.
