My computer seems bogged down lately. Even with my good computer specifications (see profile), things are running slow.
Even with 2GB memory, 99% is being used up most of the time, and I am only using two or three programs that should not be sucking up all that memory. What should I do?
Secondly, file retrieval has been needlessly slow. Should I defrag my harddrive using fsck? If so, how do I do it? Should I back up all my files first? If I need to use a different drive in order to fsck my harddrive, how do I do that?
