    Windows close slowly

    All performance is very sluggish - takes minutes to start a program. When I click on the "x" to close a window, most of the time it "paints" down the screen a scan line at a time, often taking 2-3 minutes to close the window. When I start up in Safe Mode with Networking, it works like a new machine - very fast. What app is slowing this down. I am running XP/SP3.

    Run msconfig, click on the stratup tab and disable every thing. Reboot and see if your problem goes away. If it does, enable things in groups until you determine the culprit. I would leave as many things disabled as possible. See this list for recomendations for the start up list:
