Windows lag time, once inside Windows, has increased and slower.
Something stange is happening. My lag time after entering Windows was no more than 8-12 seconds. XP Professional would load Microsoft office programs imediately and internet explorere would launch rapidly and immediately. Now the lag time after entering windows is 30 seconds. IE8 and other programs take much longer. This is baffling. I am asking for your professional assistance in determining what could be causing this.
I have not made any changes in MSCONFIG.
The only programs that startup with Windows are tp4.exe and ctfmon.exe
I have run scans by Malwarebytes, comboix and GMER. Each program found nothing. The issue is elsewhere.
What do you suggest?
Thank you for your upcoming help
