    Hello, hope you can help. Been trying to figure it out for months.

    Some process starts to run approx every 2 hrs., and it really slows my machine down. It starts out where I can just here the hard drive working, and it's not so bad, but then it starts trying to read my A: drive, and the lag is terrible. It hits A: about 4-6 times, then subsides, and everythings back to normal. The whole thing lasts about ten min. This all started when I reformatted my hard drives (2) FAT32, and took the partitions off. A tech student I met, said it was probably my anti-virus program, but I checked all the settings, and can't find anything there, unless I'm missing something. Anyway, heres my startuplist, hope you can figure it out.

    Thank you

    I'll try disabling it, but won't know till later if it worked. Just had it do that thing again, about 20 min ago, and now I gotta go to work.
    I'm glad someone replied, was beginning to wonder if I was going to get anything to at least try. I appreciate the input, and will update later. Thank you very much.

    With all that Norton stuff that's running, it won't surprise me at all if that's the culprit(along with Office FindFast).

    What speed is the processor and how much RAM is installed?

    Well WhitPhil, it seems you were on the money. I haven't heard it try to read the a: drive all night. Sure am glad I happened on this forum, I was about at my wits end. Short and sweet. Thanks for your help.

    A 400 MHz processor and 384 MB of RAM will handle Windows 98 just fine. (y)

    I'm glad to hear that you got the problem fixed. I've never used Microsoft Office, but I've heard that FindFast is very hoggish. :)
