    I just put a system together
    Xp 1800+
    ecs k7s5a
    pny gf3 ti200
    512 pny ddr
    Phillips acustic edge
    maxtor 80gig ATA133
    antec 400 watt PS
    Xp Pro

    when I boot and launch IE for instance it come up fine, but if want another IE window it will hang and take from like 1 minute to anywhere around 10 minutes.
    If I just try to open "My Computer" I get the time thing and completely locks and I most of the time have to reboot from Task Manager.
    I reinstalled a few times and downloaded all critical updates a few times as well.
    I am going to try different detonators but I really don't think that's the problem.
    Any ideas?

    Lonman Bleh!

    Are you networked or on DSL? There's a feature that looks for scheduled tasks over the network that's caused system delays like you describe for some folks. If yes to the question, do a search in the networking forum on how to turn it off.
