Hey there. Thanks for taking time reading my post. Here's the thing... lately, whenever I try to open My Computer, things start to slow down... and it takes more than 5 minutes to load that simple My Computer screen, with the drives and stuff. This delay is already pretty annoying by itself, but sometimes it causes the PC to crash.. and I don't need to say how much I waste when it happens. May you want to know something more about my machine, here are some stuff in advance: 1st - PC Specification: OS: Windows XP SP2 2 HDs - one with 80GB and other with 40GB RAM: 768 MB Intel Pentium 4 - 1.70GHz 2nd - Activity I hadn't been using much my PC 'til last week, and it was about then I found out this problem... but I can't recall installing anything back then, nor doing anything but using things like Microsoft Word or Photoshop. My AVAST is up to date, and I've recently done some scans trying to find out anything wrong... But really it just seems like the trouble started alone, tho I know it has to have some cause. If anyone could give me a hand here, it would be great. I know I can use alternative ways to access things shown on My Computer, but it's a matter of routine and so on. Thanks in advance!
