    I have a Gateway with a 1300MHz P4. I'm running XP Pro v2002 SP1.
    Launching Internet Explorer takes almost a minute before a site is seen, but the System Idle Process never dips below 70 and typically is around 90.
    Virtual memory is 192 to 384MB.
    I've run Adaware SE 1.06r1 set to be thorough, scan with Norton AntiVirus Pro v10.0.1.13, and have run online spyware as well.
    This is SO much slower than my 750 MHz running Win98. Any suggestions?

    Download, install and run HijackThis

    Copy/paste the log that it creates, back here for review.
