I'm hoping someone can give me some advice on this little problem i have. When I first start up windows it takes several minutes once it's actually booted for internet explorer or outlook express to work. If I click on them during that period they lock up and don't do anything. I don't know if I should do a clean install of the OS or what since I've only had this on the machine for about 6 months. I've heard of having to reinstall win95-98 every 6 months or so but never win2000. Any help someone could give me would be greatly appreciated.
