    Im running windows professional 2000 and it creeps! It was over 15 minutes from turning the computer on to sign on to AOL. I tried to give a list of my start up list but the oleaut32.dll is too old also down loaded startman10 with the same result.....so downloaded oleaut32.dll from a .dll site. I cant replace the old dll file with the new!
    Can anyone help? If you have any answers please talk to me like a 5 year old :) I know just enough to be dangerous.

    First off, don't just start randomly replacing DLL's on the system, that could put in worse shape than before! You need to explain how the problem materialized, was it sudden or gradual? Have you done a complete virus scan and downloaded SpyBot and checked for spyware/malware? That would be my first steps.

    Hi Dean5,
    Do exactly as johnwill suggested. Then go here Download the Startup List and install it. Run it and post the results. Also go to start, control panel, administrative tools, services and post the services that are running there. In the status box it should say started. You need admin privleges to do this though.

    Downloaded Spybot as suggested. How long does it run? I started the program around 7 am and I had to stop it this evening around 9pm. Still haveing a problem with the Startup List and the old oleaut32.dll. The whole problem is very gradual. I'm ssure there is alot of useless software on this laptop. If I had my way I'd just have explorer AOL and Word LOL

    I tried this a runnig tasks list
