I'm having problems after coming back to my computer after the screensaver has been on. This doesn't happen everytime, but it has occured a good number of times. Basically, the computer is really slow coming back, all the icons appear slow, the items in the taskbar appear really slowly, if at all, and when I click a program I wait a long time and the mouse goes to the hourglass. I ctrl+alt+del to restart the computer, because I can't open the Start menu. So, the computer just appears REALLY slow. I'm on a Win 98 system. I only have 54% of resources, so I think that may be a problem. Also, I didn't defrag in a long time so when I tried it took 2 hours and still didn't have 1%. Any ideas on what I can do? How do I free up resources if that is the problem. Thanks!
