Default WInXP super slow opening "My Computer" HELP

Hi all. This started a few days ago. Everytime I start Windows and everything loads up, when I click My Computer or My Documents, it takes like 60 or 90 seconds for it to open up. Tried restore from before it started and nothing. Checked for spyware, background apps, and nothing. In Win Task Mngr, System Idle Process CPU is 99% Is this it? . Please help. Thanks.

Type msconfig in your run command and see if any unnecessary programs are loading up at windows start. 99% cpu usage is way to high idle if you have no programs running.

thanks for all replies. I just downloaded Microsoft's new Spyware Utility (Beta), and ran it. Presto, I had crazy spyware and that was the cause of the slowdown. After it scanned and I deleted all entries, Windows is back to normal. Give it a shot at http://www.microsoft.com/athome/secu...e/default.mspx

That prog is handy. I hope it's still available for free even after beta stage.

Once beta stage is finished you'll have to pay an annual subscription fee.
