Hi Guys,

I am running Windows XP SP2 here on my home unit and the system is very slow 
loading a program;   not just one particular program but all programs.   After 
the program loads, the normal functions of the program are normal.     The type 
of programs vary from word processors to spreadsheets to database to email 
program to web browser.    They all load slow.

History:   Shortly after I installed SP2, I began to get an error message that 
Easy CD Creator 6 
required an updated driver for SP2.   I go to Roxio website and cannot download 
the driver;   I get a message to upgrade to CD Creator 7 for only $69.95, which 
I don't want to do.   I only wanted the driver.   I sent an email to Roxio 
support and they have never answer.  Does anyone know how I can download this 

In the meantime, I uninstalled Easy CD Creator 6 and I no longer get the error 
message;   but they is when my Programs started to load very, very slow.   I'm 
talking 1-2 minutes for Quicken, Mozilla, Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, 
Word, Excel, Explorer, and others;  no exception.

Other actions taken;   daily updates to eTrust Anti-Virus Program, daily 
updates to SpywareBlocker; daily updates to Spybot & scan, daily updates to 
Ad-aware & scan.   System appears to be clear of virus, Trojans & other 
unwanted programs.   

Any suggestions?
