PC very slow on boot up

  Rebanut 09:04 29 Aug 03

I have an Athlon 2600 Evesham machine and when I boot up in the morning it is very slow, when opening say Outlook Express it sometimes a minute or more before the page comes up, any easy answers for a novice please, oh the machine has XP.

My Machine is only a couple of weeks old so I dont know if I should ring the Evesham helpline,
Yes I do have Kazaa on PC.

Go to Start/Run type MSCONFIG and press enter, click startup tab and remove all the tick's except for Anti-Virus and Firewall and then try a restart

Uninstall Kazaa, download Ad-Aware from click here and Spybot from click here, these programs should clear up all the spyware and other nasties left behind by Kazaa

Many thanks for the help, are there any
other sites for downloading music which
dont cause as many problems.

I feel partially responsible as it was me that downloaded Kazaalite onto Rebanuts PC!
I will try one of the other ones recommended in the article that JoeC posted and will report back.
