Slow execution of some programs after a format.
I am having an odd problem at the moment; I did a complete format and reinstall of XP Pro on Sunday morning, and now have trouble with a few items not starting very quickly.
Basically, my shortcut to Dial-up in the quicklaunch bar takes about 30 seconds to open the dial-up box, with no HD activity in the first 30 seconds. Also, Easy Tune 4, the Gigabyte monitoring utility does the same; a shortcut on the desktop takes 30 to 45 seconds to open after activating the shortcut.
Everything else opens very quickly, including Windows itself, and I really dont want to go through the heartache of reformatting, getting Windows to notice sATA hard drives, installation, and then all the hardware drivers/updates etc. again quite so soon.
Any help on this would be appreciated.
