    when you re-installed XP did you do a clean install? as in completely reformatting everything then installing again? Cause with problems like that occuring right after install I can't imagine what might be causing it.

    Well the problem was there before I reinstalled - thought a re-install would correct it - But obviously not !Trying to prevent a Format - buttt - maybe not - really though I think I hid - something and can't find out what - -
    But closer to a re-format than I want to be :)

    Do you have any network drives mapped? Or maybe it's also trying to search on the internet too? Don't know if it would try searching for those, but it's a place to look :)
