    I finally found the culprit and it was Java Quick Starter, which can easily be disabled via the Java Control Panel, Advanced tab, last option at bottom. I am using Chrome as my browser and for a very long time, maybe as long as a year, that browser has been awfully slow to launch fully, taking for EVER to show the page I've requested (assuming I double-clicked an Internet shortcut to initiate the program). In fact I would almost ALWAYS get the pop-up message from Chrome claiming the page I asked for is "unresponsive" and do I wish to either Kill the page or Wait. After one page is rendered in the browser, additional pagesare rendered fairly promptly.

    I THOUGHT A LOT OF THIS PROBLEM WAS DUE TO THE INNUMERABLE SECURITY PATCHES SUPPLIED BY WINDOWS UPDATE OVER THESE RECENT YEARS. But no, now that I have disabled JQS my browser launchings are smooth and speedy!

    It's a long convoluted story how I eventually identified the true culprit as JQS, so I won't tire you with the details.

    So I am here advising my fellow PC users to get rid of that worthless scumbag process, JQS.EXE.

    Good riddance to bad rubbish!

    Every time I install or update Java Runtime Environment in a Windows XP computer, I uncheck its startup entry and disable its service entry.

    It's something that I've done for years.

    Many people (including me) have removed Java altogether.
    If a site doesn't work without, either find a different site or temporarily run the portable java.
