Hi all
I have a HP Compaq dc5100 Microtower PC" Cpu 3 / 2mb cash 3 Gb Ram" and Xp sp3 on it
now it takes 30 seconds or more to delete a file , especially when this file in larger than 1 Gigabyte , I did not have this problem before - especially I use " shift-delete "
I had desk defragment and scanned for viruses but for no use

Do you have a restore point that predates this problem?

What is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?

What happens if you delete one of those files in safe mode - is it still slow?

Open msconfig and on the General tab choose "selective startup" (uncheck all three items) and reboot. Does the problem still occur? If not, start adding items back to msconfig one or two at a time, rebooting after each change, until the problem reappears and you'll have identified the offending process. This is clearly a time consuming procedure, but it is the best way to determine if some process loading with the system is the cause of your problem.
After you've isolated the cause, do not use msconfig to permanently disable the process. Instead, if it is a service go to START - RUN and type: services.msc (then press enter) and disable the service OR, if it a program, you can download & run a simple app such as Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml) to enable, disable, or otherwise manage startup programs.
