Slow Computer

I have just finished (yet another) a rebuild of my software and found it was running OK until the latest batch of Microsoft updates (XP Pro).

With a little bit of Digging, I found the problem to be in the Add ons.

Internet Explorer- Tools- Add Ons, and in particular the Microsoft Research option and the multiple search and email options running by default.

I disabled all the ones that I have no use for and the system is now a lot faster.

Hope this helps someone

Terry
