When clearing the "My Recent Documents" list (Start properties/Customize/Advanced/Clear list) it takes 10-15 seconds to clear, regardless of how few items are on the list. Clearing Internet history takes a little longer. It used to be almost instantaneous. I think the problem started back when I installed the Service Packs. Any ideas?

Any idea when the last time you defragmented was? As far as clearing internet history, it could again be a fragmented drive, but it could also just be more temp. files being deleted.

It is slow doing anything else? opening programs, games, music, etc..?

Defragged regularly, last time this past weekend. The problem with the history files occurs even if all temp files are cleared first. Haven't noticed it anywhere else. As I wrote, it's minor but I know it can do better.
