I have this system. winnt4 IE 5.5 (installed over IE 4). Problem is some of programs lag when they start. Like when i click IE icon. It starts after 30 seconds. Rest of windows program run fine in the mena while. When IE is opened I can create its threads without lag. but every time i click on IE icn to create a new process same lag comes. Similarly when i open My Computer sam eproblem occurs. Same problem comes in the case of control panel starting window.
I have two partitions. C is FAR and D is NTFS. The system was running fine for last 4 months. I shut it down in proper way yesterday but when i opened it in the morning problem occured.
I have attempted ot solve it:

1) i repaired IE 5.5 no use
2) removed IE 5.5 and then reinstalled no use
3) i cleaned reg with one of reg cleaner. no use.
4) i used NT disk error check No use.

So if one can help me solve th eproblem without reinstalling windows NT. that will be of great help

Wht are your system specs and how many other applications are running when you encounter the slowdown? I would change all of IE's settings to minimal....change the history to zero and clear history, delete all temporary internet files and check how much disk space you have available for programs. I wouldn't run an NT box on less than 64 MB...more is better. Also, change the Application performance setting in the system properties to maximum for forground applications and set the pagefile size larger for virtual memory.
