Wierd IE 6 and Win explorer Probs...
I'm having some issues with IE6 and Windows explorer on my win2k (SP2) server box.
For some reason, in IE6 when I type an address into the url box IE pauses for about 2 minutes before even trying to locate the site.
Windows Explorer has a similar problem. It takes a good 2 minutes to scan My Computer. For Example, I'll create a document in word, Press Save, Hit the arrow in the "Save In" box to select a destination and word/eplorer will pause for about 1-minutes before it displays the list.
This has been happening on my home puter for about 2 months, and now it just started today on my work computer (Win2k Pro SP3).

Do you have antivirus software? Is it updated? How full are your hard drives? Did you ever defrag them? How much memory do you have in these systems?

Yup... I have Mcafee on both machines (always updated), Last Defrag was about 4 weeks ago, Temps and histories are cleaned out weekly, OS HDD is about 30% full, Data HDDs about 60% full. Work machine has 512mb (PIII866) home machine has 386mb (PIII 600)... I'll try another defrag tonight...
One thing I forgot to mention is... On home computer this problem only occurs when I'm logged in. When my wife is logged in she doesn't have this problem...Eat, drink and be merry...

thought I would bump this up cause I'm starting to have these same problems with my new box.
I have just set-up a new 2k pro box. I have updated all the latest patches and sp's. It's a brand new box but I ran defrag anyway and there is nothing in event viewer.
30 gig (win98)
40 gig (w2k)
80 gig (tray - data).
the puter is virus free,
Any other ideas?Eat, drink and be merry...

run task manager. a default install of xp or 2k will have
about 15 processes running. after using for a while
25-30 processes running. over 30 processes = slooooooow
machine. make sure your virual memory is high enuf. mak
sure u dont have alot of stuff automatically opening up
u dont want. for ex. office doesnt need to open automatically at startup, open it when u need it.my signature was so lame i deleted it.

I'd suggest cleaning out your temporary internet files. You can get to them but substituting my user name with yours:
C:\Documents and Settings\Scott\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5
I'd also recommend cleaning out all your cookies and such as well within IE settings.
If that doesn't work try logging in as another user on the same computer and see if that fixes it. It could be something's up with your profile.Where's Lunch?

Temp files are clean... remember, this has happened on a fresh install... no clutter.
I have tried loggin in as another user and they don't seem to have the same issue. odd... Cause like I said before this is a fresh install, I had yet to make any changes to my own user settings...
I thought it might have something to do with mapped drives but I'm having this issue on my home puter also and I have no permanent mapped drives there...
My startup is pretty clean... Virtually memory is set to 1 1/2 times ramEat, drink and be merry...

You install any updates from Microsauce?
They had that one that would slow your PC down real good like. I don't recall which one it was, but they have it and then a fix for it. Don't even ask if that's supposed to make sense.This signature intentionally left blank.

Yup, I have all critical updates.. But I will double check.Eat, drink and be merry...

tools - internet options - connections tab - lan settings - uncheck the automatically detect settings. prob not it prob your router / or some hardware settings, check your nic card settings.

Boy do I feel silly...
When I was setting up this new box, I mapped a drive to my old box, did all my transfers, set-up the new machine, took the old box of the network but forgot to disconnect the network drive...
That seems to be the culprit. Ugh....Eat, drink and be merry...
