Hi Val,

I mentioned defrag as a last resort but feel you should clear out your browser 
history and cookies as a priority.  It's also a lot quicker.

To do this, assuming you are using XP, go into the browser and press Alt T for 
tools.  You should find in there a function to clear out your history and many 
other things too.  I believe it is quite safe to clear it all out.

As you have not done a defrag before you may find that it could take two or 
three hours so don't sit there waiting thinking it only takes a minute or two.  
Reading the StatusBar should tell you how much time has elapsed.

  Hi Robin, David and Kevin, thanks for your suggestions, Robin and David.  
Tried unchecking as Robin suggested and also David's suggestion of the clean 
manager.  No joy with Robin's suggestion but I cleared out an awful lot of 
temporary files, etc. etc. but, like the genie in the bottle, the "invisible" 
list(s) popped up again so I reckon its going to have to be the defrag but I 
don't know how to do it - any step by step instructions please.

  I always log out and switch off rather than leaving the computer in either 
stand by or hibernation modes.  I even did a re-boot following the unchecking 
of the tabs and the cleaning but to no avail.  

  I suppose the defrag is the last resort before I throw this machine in the 

  With best wishes
