ok i have a computer thats over 6 years old. its a compaq windows XP home edition.
i am REALLY not a computer expert at ALL.
so nowadays and months b4 too, our computer has been realllyyyy slow with loading up, startups, and just everything!! so i decided to remove programs that i dont use anymore. but i had no idea wut intel graphic thing was so i deleted that since it took only 4 MB. but after i rebooted, everything was bigger! i mean the icons were bigger, the screen was bigger. i changed the resolution and it went bak to its orginal size. but then this thing keeps poppin up sayin a file is needed which is file : wADV08NT.sys.
i found the file but it wasnt the full file. it was the icon that loooks imcomplete. but it still started installing a new program for intel. but when i did, it stopped sayin tha tmy computer doesnt have the minimum requirements. so i go to intel and see wut the requirements are, and there are A BUNCH of diifferent requirements for different intel programs. i have no idea wut kind of program wADV08NT.sys goes with so i tried ignoreing the pop up but it keeps poppin up.

i typed t he file in google and a website showed up that u can download it but u have to pay for it. should i pay for it? and why is my computer sooo slow??

everytime i used firefox and AIM triton, my computer slows down EVERYTIME its soo annnoying. like i said, my computer slows down everytime i try to open up anything.

PLEASEESSSSS HELP ME~!! ive been stressing out and breakin down from my dad consistently askin wuts wrong with the computer? it drives me insane. esp when i try to find the solution for like 4 hours!!:sad:
