MY COMPUTER searching problem
This could be a hardware or software problem, im unsure... im currently having a problem, when i click on "My Computer" the window pops up with nothing inside (normally shows c drive and cd drives, etc) - all i have is the little torch flashing from side to side... after about 2 mins all the drives appear.

while having this problem i opened another window and typed c: in the address bar... the contents of my hdd appeared quick... i tried it with all other drives and they all show up fine... its just when i go through the "My Computer" icon they don't appear straight away.

once they appear once they re-appear every time i try again... until i restart in which the process begins again.

I have no idea how this all started, perhaps a registry problem? I tried using CCleaner and Advanced Windowscare personal, they both do a good job but did not fix the problem. I am using XP Professional sp 2 and have 2 Gig of RAM.

Thanks for any help.
