Painfully Slow....

  1. Ever since I used Resource Hacker to edit a copy of explorer.exe, my comp has become excrutiatingly slow. It crashes when I right click even. I killed a whole bunch of processes to get it a bit faster. I got rid of the copy and am now only running winXP normal explorer.exe.

    Why would my computer have gotten somuch slower? I would do a system restore, but I've done a fair deal in the last few days. I also can't get My Computer to work, nor can I run IE. I'm currently using Netscape.

    Resource Hacker couldn't put humpty dumpty together again (at least properly...).

    I kinda guessed that it did something wrong recompiling explorer (which already gobbles resources). It must have been even less efficient than the people at Microsoft who wrote the software originally (if that's possible :D ).
