Hey ho everyone....

I have recently upgraded to XP..... To start off with everything was running really sweetly..... but now when i load up the desktop appears and the start menu works but my desktop icons take ages to load up.

Has anyone else got this?

Is there anyway i can change the setup so the icons appear at the same time as everything else.

Thanks peeps 4 your time :)

hmmm that sounds like low ram, or slow vid board, there is no real startup delay for icons they display as fast as they can

ya might want to see what you have loading at startup and get rid of whatever ya don't need, also make sure to disable any services ya don't need

a good way to see whats loading at startup is to goto run then type in msconfig

My comp is a P4 1.7, ATI Radeon 8500, 768mb ram......

This is Y its confusing me.... I instaled a copy of XP plus..... thats about the time that it all went wrong :(, but probably like most others, my machine only gets turned off on special occasions so i am not quite sure what else could of affected it.

In my startup all i have running is aol, ir control for tv card and office....

any other suggestions?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
