Regarding Otto, it is generally found to be a games related application connected to Wild Tnagent and is often found on Dell computers (don't know about how common it is with Toshiba but if you or someone else has ever installed anything connected with Wild Tangent that would explain its presence).

Information concerning Otto and Wild Tangent including removal
I'm trying to speed up my Toshiba laptop running XP. When i boot it up, it's impossibly slow once I get to the desktop (takes forever to open a program & firefox).
Looking for tips on how to remedy this.
Also, in looking for programs to delete, hoping to speed up things, I found "Otto" in my programs list. What is it?
thanks very much! _Cara
