hi, for the past few days my xp sp3 notebook has been slow on the "loading personal settings" page - taking say about 20 seconds to load instead of going straight through to the desktop. This happens on the account I use on a daily basis. I have another account that I use for downloading programs or updates, and there is no such lag with that. I have run a malwarebytes scan and nothing was found. Event viewer did show that yesterday my AV program did not start properly first time but that was only yesterday, nothing showed up for the previous days or today. I tried creating a new account thinking that maybe my normal account is becoming corrupted, and then logged in to it - that also was slow as above, but maybe that is because it was a brand new account? Would you have any idea what if anything could be going wrong with the original account? Any ideas much appreciated.
