    When I try to open "My Computer" it searches for about 30-40 seconds before it finds all my drives and so on...

    If I open directly to another folder or anywhere else it opens right away...?

    Anyone know what could be causing this?

    not alot I think...? not really sure. But I do believe there is alot of HP software running in the background.

    i think this problem started when I installed some printers? or tried to enable a shared external drive for backups...

    Yea, I've checked and there is alot of stuff there. I don't know what is and isn't essential.

    I have a wireless (HP) printer at home that's installed and a network printer (also HP) installed for at work.

    How can I take a screen shot? maybe I can show someone...

    Hello Tech

    Your best to do a "hijack this " and attach findings here, a professional will look at results. The start up programs should not be touched if your not sure whats is what, i dont have the link to hijack this maybe someone can send to you
