    Hi,
    I have a new PC Pentium IV 2800 MHz and 1024 RAM.
    When my PC works for something, for example for Antivirus scan, pastes
    an file or goes in Internet or any other work, it is very very slow.
    It seems doesn't succeed in doing any other simple operation.
    My old Pentim III was a little bit faster.
    Is it normal?
    Thanks

    bye Adriano

    What's the OS? I ask because with Windows 98 that much RAM can be a problem
    although there's a workaround for it mentioned in the Microsoft Knowledge
    base.

    Of course there are other possibilities as well(IRQ conflicts, spyware
    infestation, need to scandisk and defrag the hard drive, etc.).
