I have spent a couple days trying to figure out why it takes FF so long to open. There were also a few error msgs that should not have showed up. I did an elimination test on several processes that were always running. Well, the culprit is SuperAntiSpyware!! When I end it in Task Manager, all is well. I hate to uninstall it but I just can't have this. This is not only on my Toshiba Satellite running XP Home SP3, it is also on my Mac Mini running XP Pro SP3. In fact, it wreaked so much havoc on the Mac Mini, I may have to reinstall the OS. Thank God for the external backup!! I think what I will do is uninstall it on both computers then download the install file and run it just for cleaning up purposes. I use Avira Antivir and MalwareBytes and they are not causing any problems! Ideas on this, please.

Yeah. Don't run SAS resident. Just keep your AV resident and run periodic scans with either SAS or MawareBytes.

I moved this from XP to Am I Infected, in case it is. This is the Free version?

Uninstall it, it may have gottem corrupted mthen reinstall and scan.
