Having problems uploading images, please help.

When I try to upload images to my MSN community or my Yahoo briefcase my computer will slow down and sometimes temporarily lock up. It is even hard for me to terminate the application. I was not having this problem before I formatted my hard drive the last time and it happens no matter what the photo size. I am running Windows XP Pro on an Athlon 1.3gig with 512 meg of memory. Why would my computer slow down when I am uploading images? Any suggestions?

what type of connection do you have? (dial-up, DSL, cable, etc)

after formatting the hard drive, did you make sure to get all updates available (for both OS and/or web browser?)

what software are you using to upload the images?

I have DSL, don't have all the updates and I'm using my browser to upload the images(right?).

do you have a router? (i used to have trouble uploading ftp through my router... but if it worked fine before your reformat and you had a router then, that isn't the problem).

i don't have any magic answers, i'm just hoping that by asking all these questions one of us will be able to diagnose the problem :>
