I haven't noticed any topics on this issue but have been having this problem for a couple weeks now. Nothing really major but it's still annoying, when I click on the Desktop Icon 'My Computer' it takes close to a minute for it to pop up. I've defraged a couple times since then and ran the latest update of Trend Micro PC-Cillin to check for viruses. I tried updating to Service Pack 2 and had to run system restore to go back to before the service pack upgrade because of some more critical issues i was running into. I'm still running into the same problem so if anyone has any ideas or has heard of this your comments will be appreciated.
