This is the same laptop I had a topic on about two weeks ago. I had help with those (different) issues. The laptop (Dell XP-Pro) has MB Pro. It has begun taking 10 - 15 minutes for all the icons to load on the screen so I can begin work. I did a complete uninstall this afternoon. It then would boot up and be ready to use in about 2 minutes. That is the way it was with MB Pro until a few weeks ago. I then re-installed it and re-booted. It went right back to slow, taking 18 minutes to finish loading everything so I could begin work. MBAM was using 230 MB for about 3 minutes then dropped down to 103MB. That is pretty much where it's staying.

This issue has only been going on about 3 weeks. Any advice will be appreciated.
