    Thanks for the input. I followed most of what you explained. Is there a specific guide that you would recommend following for the sluggishness problem?

    The following is the only removal that has worked:
    Start> Control Panel> Display> Desktop> Customize Desktop> Web tab> uncheck and delete everything you find in there (except for "My current home page")> Also remove the check mark from the the Lock Desktop Items box if it is checked> Apply> OK> Close.
