a few weeks ago I started having slow startups and lots of thrashing. Did the normal things like running antivirus, spyware, defraging - nothing helped . tried deleteding some prgs that I wasn't using - the add/delete progs routine takes over an hour to run and only shows about the first 6 programs. deleted the last one showing (ATI) and tried again - no help.
anything that required a list like the 'all prgs' section of start took forever. Finally I discovered that I'm apparently bringing up more than one copy of windows. (If I do a screen print I get a screen with windows basckground and no icons, then right below it the screen with icons and whatever it was I was trying to print.) I knew how to undo this kind of thing back when we had autoexec.bat and config.sys but I haven't kept up with the new windows stuff. I really could use some help here I just can't backup everything and start over!
