My System

desktop icons are slow loading


My friends desktop icons are slow loading, like 5 mins load. Yet his wife's on the same machine, different account, work just fine. He said his network icon is gone. but, his AOL works fast. Where can I steer him to fix this?

Thanks, I'll have Chuck try that! He's a new computer user, and not sure about all of this. I see he did post a thread.
