Go to c:\windows\prefetch\ Delete that folder, dont worry, it's ok Delete all cookies and Temporary Internet Files Run SpyBot Search and Destroy 1.4 RC-1 & Ad Aware Se Personal or Pro 1.5 Make sure all are updated and run them Delete anything it finds Go to your add/remove Remove anything you know is not supposed to be in there Next go to c:\program files\ Delete any folders you know that are not supposed to be in there Did this help? __________________  05-07-2005, 01:55 PM #7 (permalink) True Techie Join Date: Feb 2005 Posts: 195 I noticed that youy are running imesh. That could be the problem. You should remove it and see if it helps. Another thing it could be is the norton speed disk that you have. That can be a major cpu hog. Disable it and see if that helps as well. __________________ At$0.02, your analysis is overpriced for its worth.
