TT4Titans that wasn't very helpful...

You can try using msconfig (Start>Run>msconfig) and remove some stuff from start-up. If you don't know what a process is, go HERE.


But WOW! It's surprising you're even running XP on 98MB! My worst PC was 128MB and it ran XP like a slug with salt on it ( :) ).

Run an AV program, as well as a spyware program (Ad-Aware / Spybot S&D).

Other than that, get more RAM.

You need at least 128MB of RAM for Xp to workproperly and 256MB RAM is recommended

Sorry Linux but that was as about as helpful as that could be.

Actually 128 is the bare minumum and 512 is the recommended to get the performance.256 will do pretty good till you start adding several apps.

I mean a AV is liable to lock it down especially if the screen saver comes on.

Hi,
You have adviced me to run an AV program. Can you tell me what is this AV program stands for?

What he is saying is that your computer might also be slow because you may have a virus infection. But the many reason that you computer is going so slow with XP is the lack of RAM/Memory.

It's probably not a virus. Run a spyware check first! It's faster and will probably help your problem (uhh fix itself).
