Am I the only one experiencing system slowdown in a brand-new XP Pro install? I did a clean install two week ago and pretty much right off the bat my system began to slowdown! I mean the initial install was fine with no updates. it ran good. I installed all critical updates and my desired applications and the system begins to slowdown. Now two weeks latter the Internet take 15 to 20 sec to open. “IE 6”. Things are locking like my e-mail and other random applications. Is my system just getting old? Or is it something ells? This is my system.

And this is what hijackthis tells me is on startup.

C:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\WINWORD.EXE
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\Stuff\hijackthis\HijackThis.exe


I don’t see anything unusual in startup myself. Am I missing something?
