Hi all,

Anyone know why it seems to take a few seconds more than usual to load a file...jpg, pdf, etc. from the desktop..it done it before so I used ERUNT to boot a fresh copy of the registry after backing up..this made things better but rather than resort to the same method I'd like to know what is casuing the problem..

I am defragging at the mo hoping that may help. Before that I set the pagefile to no pagefile, rebooted then reinstated it incase it was corrupt but that did not help...any ideas would be great...I have a dell dimension 3000 with 1GB memory...

and XP home..:-)

many thanks indeed,

There could be a number of issues causing this :

1) Video card drivers not upto date
2) Which program do you use to open JPEG?
3) Did you clean out your prefetch folder?
For starters..

As far as pagefile is concerned please read this on
