|Bikewizard, a couple of things come to mind, may/may not be your problem...worth trying. As you save a graphic a box appears (mine's upper left, yours?). That box contains another box 'clear list'. Mine got REAL slow until I checked that box. Seems it's a logfile and has to be cleaned periodically (I do mine monthly).|
Another common ailment is a file called 'index.dat'. It gets read every time and can take quite a while if it’s too bloated. It's like a log file and keeps a record of every site you visit on the web. Empty, it's 32K, but it can grow HUGE. It's a protected file and can't be deleted by normal methods. CCleaner (free @: http://www.ccleaner.com/) can get rid of it (not to worry, it gets rebuilt EMPTY on the next boot.). Maybe?
