  1. I know I sound like an ***** but I am having trouble opening programs off my desktop. Sometimes they open, sometimes it takes a minute to open, and sometimes not at all. I am attaching my hjt log. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your HJT log is clean.

    Have you defragged your system lately?

    When did your problem first appear? Have you installed any new hardware/software recently.

    Take a look at this thread HERE, it`ll show you how you can speed up your pc.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Hello, welcome to TechSpot. :wave:

    Your HJT log is clean. However, you are only running Windows XP SP1. Service Pack 2 has been released, so go to Windows Update to download Service Pack 2 for Windows XP.

    Edit: oops, Howard and I posted at the same time. Go ahead Howard, but nick, you should still download SP2.
    Regards :)
