I am running with two separate systems, XP (Compaq 2 gb) and Vista (HP 3 gb).  Both systems have extremely long boot up times 5 - 10+ minutes. When running within an application response times are good, not super fast but acceptable. When I say running an application I mean like  WORD, Excel. Phone Book, etc.  Working outside an application it appears to be searching the complete C: drive.in order to locate a PGM I'm trying to launch.  Any help is appreciated.  Regards, RM 




Mod Edit:

Moved to WinXP for starters,~~ boopme
