i have an ongoing problem whereby i select a program ie firefox and it loads then hangs for about two minutes or so, this applies to any and all selections, xp pro sp3 all usual updates

any ideas please?

Probably still loading.

Your PC is not a "cutting edge" number, a bit antediluvian, like mine?

the cause is not "still loading" as it happens each time i change programs it just hangs for a minute or so and if i call up task manager it shows programs not running and sometimes when cold i have to delete and reload. any useful ideas please?
