Hi again (probably kritius!) After the great work on my laptop, my mum asked me if I (or, rather, TS) could take a look at her desktop PC that I built a couple of years ago for her. It's always really slow to start-up (although wasn't up until about twelve or so months ago) and some programs like Word and IE, and areas like the Control Panel and My Computer, can take longer than normally expected to open. I've run HJT - and attach as a file for you. Thanks for the help!
