I am trying to get my system to run faster now that my son has stopped using it.  For some time I have a problem when I open a file or do a file save as (from office products or indeed from other apps).

The first action will take 20-30 seconds and then subsequent actions are fine.  This isn't the Green Bar Of Death as it happens before the dialog window is displayed.

I have uninstalled all my sons junk apps but the only thing I can see that is unusual is on Windows explorer where tunder network it shows my PC and an entry for localhost.  I had turned IIS off/on/off ans it makes no difference.  I can't file any localhost entries in the host file.

Any ideas.  Its driving me nuts!

Now solved.  I had the Nuance Cloud Connector installed.  Uninstalled and the localhost entry disappeared and the file open problem cleared.
