I'm running Win98 on a Compaq Armada PII 128ram laptop. I recently had some headaches with a PXE-E05 error, but I got that all fixed up. Now, however, I have a new problem: When I try to open "My Computer" (or any folder), I must wait 3-4 minutes. I can open programs lickety-split, but "MC" takes forever. I've run 2 kinds of antivirals. I've pared down the startup items. (In fact, as you'll see in the first link there, I've had the same problem when starting up with ALL items unchecked -- and yet when in Safe Mode, the window opens right away.) I generally hate when people post Windoze problems here, since there are other more appropriate forums. But I've tried them, and I can't seem to get any help. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.
