Internet Security Suite

Can someone give advice:

I have installed "Internet Security Suite 3-users" op my Windows XP SP3 pc, but now XP is very slow with:
- showing "start" - "all programs"
- opening Excel takes more than 3 minutes.
- opening an url from Outlook takes more than 3 minutes. :mad:

If I dissable all McAfee services, everthing above opens right away. 😉

Thanks in advance.

System Requirements:

Windows XP (32-bit) with Service Pack 1 (SP1) or higher,

800 X 600 or higher resolution

256 MB RAM

200 MB of available free drive space

Supported Email Programs

Outlook Express 6.0 or later Outlook 2000 or later Eudora 6.0 or later Thunderbird 1.0 or later

if you are below the minimum requirements, the system usually runs slow..😉

also, try to check for conflicting programs with mcafee (i.e., other security programs)

XP slow

My location is "The Netherlands".
My machine is 6 months old, it's a selfmade PC.
I'm using Internet Explorer 7.
I started to notice that XP was slow right after installing Internet Security Suite.
If I dissable all McAfee services, XP is very fast again.
