My computer has started going crazy this last week. I'm on XP Pro. First issue is with startup. It was going really fast, but now it hangs on a blank screen for a solid 15 seconds before going to the login screen. I've gotten my startup down to bare essentials and it still goes really slowly. Second issue is a weird networking situation. I'm on a university network and I had everything set up so that my machine was hidden and I had no shares. Now when I open My Network Places I see all of the shared folders for 3 other random people's computers. I don't see their computers(like you do when you normally browse the network) just the folders that are shared. Even when I turn off "Client for Microsoft Networks" I still see them. When I originally set up the machine, turning that option off would completely kill my ability to browse the network. Is this normal? No viruses either according to Norton. Thanks y'all!
