do you have MSN messenger running as well on startup?
I dled all the latest MSN stuff and what happened is it started using up my resources..
easiest way for you to solve this problem is if you did NOT have trouble before... just do a quick restore back to a time when the trouble was not there.. if you have trouble with the new IE 6 bundled with XP... just dl and use the older IE and dl all the patches for it..
if all else fails... dl net... net... net.... I can't bring myself to say it... that other browser from AOL...
