    Hi everyone:

    When I start/restart my PC and run any program, my destop is very slow, I have a pentium IV "ThinkCentre".

    Anyone that solves this for me would be greatly.

    Thanks.

    Download Spybot Search & Destroy.

    Also hit window key + R and type msconfig

    Check your startup tab and disable anything you dont need to startup.

    Also you might want to ctrl-alt-del and check your "processes" and see if there is anything hogging up your CPU usage.
