First let me describe the symtoms that I am seeing.
Laptop seems to boot slower and slower from one day to the next.
When closing applications to shut the machine down at the end of the work day, I'll close IE7 or Outlook and it will take nearly 4-5 minutes for the machine to become responsive enough to be able to click "Start-->Shut Down". Also the desktop icons will be blank during this time span..
In the last 3-4 days, IE7 will close on its own when I am trying to use it.
Operation system is Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 3
Would appreciate any help you could provide.
