I have XP professional on an xp 2000 cpu based system.
Recently I downloaded service pack 1, several games and a virus that I believe my anti-v has disposed of.
My question involves the new behavior of my system when I shut-down. I have always shut my system down at the end of the night, and it usually took about 1 minute. Now it is taking 6 to 8 minutes until it finally goes down. I have defragged & scandisked and have about 80% of the drive still free and open.?? Some of my multitasking activities also seemed to have been slowed greatly. Any advice appriciated.
