Ever since I upgraded to SP2, my dialog boxes like the "print" screen come up
extremely slow?? Also my computer is starting up extremely slow.

Any ideas?

Well, I still suggest you should read the rest of the post.. Unless you
scanned with multiple AntiSpyware applications, you may have missed
something.

The Dell Drivers are not always the best for Video - I still suggest going
to the TRUE manufacturer there.. Usually ATI or Nvidia - sometimes you
might have gotten stuck with an Intel.

You didn't mention a chkdsk or defragment in there..

Shenan,

I have checked my system numerous times now with three different antispy
programs (Spybot, Ad-Aware and Microsoft) and have cleaned everything up
there. I have run chkdsk and defrag. Nothing is helping. My print dialog,
save dialog and just general dialog boxes take FOREVER to bring up. Any
other suggestions!!!

Thanks!

Shenan's advice was right on the money. IMHO, your problem lies here:

"I have checked my system numerous times now with three different antispy
programs...and have cleaned everything up there.

The creatures who write spyware (I don't consider them human) don't care if
their software creates problems for you. You may be able to remove the
spyware, but sometimes doing so will damage your system. Looks like that's
what may have happened to you.

Have you got a recent restore point made before you installed the spyware?

I do not have a restore point back that far. Dell has suggested that I
uninstall XP2. I don't know what to do, it is just running terribly.

Yes. You've tried every suggestion that's been made to you and everything
you can think of on your own, all to no avail. There's no magic bullet to
cure a computer from the damage caused by spyware.

Thanks. I will have to find all my software before I even go there as I have
little things here and there installed that I have to have.

Thanks again!

Take it slowly, and make sure you backup everything that even might be
important to you.

Now's the time to learn about disk imaging software, which will make an
exact copy of your hard disk or any partition in minutes. The backups can
happen 'in the background' while you are working, and you can schedule them
to happen automatically. Should you ever find yourself in a pickle, you can
restore a known good image in minutes and be back on your way.

Nobody is noticing that Renee said the problem started "since SP2".

I, like her, have been experiencing horrible delays in the dialog boxes...
SINCE SP2. It was sudden and definite. There is no spyware and no
unavailable network drives. It's SP2. Perhaps the interaction between SP2
and something else, but I *totally reinstalled everything* and the problem
remains. Obviously SP2 is at fault.
