Hi folks, I'm new here and would like to present a problem. I have a home built computer 1.2 gig AMD with 512 m mem. I have run win 98se for a long time and just upgraded to XP Prof. It tales forever (about 3-4 minutes) for my computer to boot to the welcome screen and another 4-5 minutes to boot all the way to the desktop complete with all the icons and ready to use. Also when going to the internet, it brings up the ie frame but takes several minutes to load the home page. (hgtv.com) I am about ready to uninstall and return to win 98 which was much faster. I have an 810 lmr motherboard with all in one components. The only items I had a problem with initial setup was 1. labtec video cam (fixed) and soundblaster PCI 128 (still not working) Sorry for comming right in with a problem, but this thing is driving me nuts. Also a look at running processes during hang time shows a file named sprite6.exe eating up 98-99% of my processor time. Any Ideas????
