All my applications IE, Word etc take forever to start up, minutes sometimes. Once up and running they are fine. I have run adaware, Spybot and Stinger, which clered up a few nasties but still have the problem. I have Panda anti virus and firewall running and I'm running Tiscali broadband. I've got 2.4 Gig CPU with 254M RAM, used to run really rapid, but not now.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks and regards
