I have an HP desktop that runs Windows XP. I have just done a complete system recovery and all unnecessary files and programs have been removed. I also have high speed internet from Cox. Cox said everything looked fine on their end. I have to wait half an hour before trying to bring up interet explorer otherwise it won't come correctly. It gives a complete blank page, does not continue loading. It does not say about blank, and just sits their. This only happens if I don't wait half an hour before trying to open up internet explorer. When the internet does load correctly and I am on the internet, it is very slow and sluggish. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Also I had Norton 2004 installed and it ran fine. Once I installed Nortion 360, it started to run slow. 360 would take a long time to load and so would the IE. I had used Uniblue registry to try to remove some registry files and once I did that my task bar was missing. This is when I did the full system recovery. So I still have Norton on the computer and the internet is still slow.
