hey guys i have a new problem on my comp. Recently (like for the last 3-4 days) i have had to wait a while (10-15 secs) to open up internet explorer, My computer, files on desktop, control panel, search.......etc other things like win media player and games run as normal without any problems. Here is the sequence of events that happens. I click IE to open it, i get the hourglass near the pointer, then it goes away, for like 10-15 secs nothing happens, then all of a sudden the window opens!!! anyone know what this could be??? BTW-runnin XP on a P4 2.0 with 512 megs ram and 80Gb hard drive........I appreciate any help you guys can give, cus this is killing me!!!!
