Fresh copy of XP Pro SP3 all updates
I've been working on this PC. Programs take a long time to start but when they do they are as fast as they are supposed to be. Even basic programs are affected. I've tried different hard drives, mice, keyboards, and even other versions of XP, all do exactly the same thing. XP always starts fast with this system but I've seen this happen on other PC's I've worked on. I've fixed the problem on some a long time ago but I can't remember at all what I did, it might even be just some setting.
