Several days ago I suddenly had a big jump in start-up time. From less than a minute up to a couple minutes. I update Norton daily and Spybot weekly+ Full scans found nothing with Norton, but a few new problems with Spybot which I cleaned up. This did not improve the situation.

This morning I went to send an email, and when I clicked 'send' (from Outlook Express) Microsoft Picture It! Photo 2002 alert boxes start coming up. It will open up nearly dozen of them before allowing me to send an email. The spell check is completely bypassed. There is no reason whatever for Picture It! to be involved??? There weren't even any attachments, not that it should matter.

This is just the second time I've had to use HJT. I hope that it is as helpful as the first. The start-up problem was really irritating but this email thing is already killing me.

Please save me.

What has happened is that you use M$ works suite and spybot or something has removed the update detection & start up entries, this has the effect of the symptoms you complain about with spell check, picture it etc,

The spell check bits are included on the picture it disc so follow their prompts and put in the disc when asked for, that cures the proble. then in spybot tick all the works entries and tick exclude from further detection
