    From viewing previous posts I understand that it is advantageous to disable the titled function. Please tell me how that it done. Thanks.

    P.S. What is a poll?

    MumboDog,
    I have three items applicable to the File System in the Registry and none of the have this Value Name NTFSDisableLastAccessUpdate. Where else should I look to disable it?

    Download the attached file, unzip it and then right click on the .reg file and select "merge"

    Restart the PC.

    If you merged the reg file, it is already done.

    If you created the dword yourself, double click on "NtfsDisableLastAccessUpdate" and set the hexadecimal "value data" to 1, hit ok

    You will have to reboot the PC for changes to take effect.

    It didn't do what I was hoping it would. I have four items checked in msconfig Startup and that's not the problem. I proved it to myself and removed them from startup.
    My problem starts when I attempt to open the first website. It takes forever and a day. And when I try to open something on that website it's not too swift. Eventually, after a few minutes, things perk up and I'm satisfied.
    I've thought about paring down the list of Services but I don't know where to start and I'm afraid I'll really mess things up.
    Any thoughts?
