Depending on what is running.
1) win2k uses page files for all sorts of stuff.
Indexing may be turned on.
Are any MS Office products installed.
They also have indexing and other stuff.
Check for viruses also :
Here is my suggestion :
Cleanup the startup stuff. In win98 - Do a Start - Run - msconfig, startup Tab , or for win95 , NT or win2k,
Download the Startup COP a free pcmag utility from
Run it and it will show you everything that is listed in all the possible startup
places, and allow you to disable things one at a time until the problem is eliminated.
A lot of probelms are caused by excess old baggage - programs that have not been properly un-installed. Startup Cop will help eliminate leftovers and un-wanted programs that you no longer want.
Older Antivirus programs and Norton Utilities have been known to cause problems
try disabling them also !
