Are you kidding me?  I want to destroy the person at Microsoft that created the “Windows Image Acquisition (WIA)” service.

MS Help and SupportOpening “My Computer” in XP has been taking between 2 and 5 minutes.  this has been happening for several months and I’ve been too busy to do anything but put up with it.  I finally decided to put a little time into it and found this article.  After I disabled the service, I found no difference in my machine other then it WORKING!  What the hell is the WIA, and WHY would it have a conflict when opening My Computer.

Thank God I have a blog to vent toward.
