    i see posts in here about slow computers. theres tons of reasons why a
    computer might be slow. could be your virtual memory, your physical RAM, the
    amount of programs in your startup, (dont forget the RUN key in the
    registry. Use the MSCONFIG program to adjust those), fragmented hard
    disk.... Heres a good guide for some things to help fix a slow computer:
    http://www.songwave.com/allguides/speedcomp.aspx. Another place you could
    check if you dont have a couple bucks to spare is
    http://www.eslpc.com/slowcomp.htm

    best thing to do is to check the things I mentioned above- make sure you
    have anti-virus with the latest updates, because many viruses also slow down
    computer systems. Good luck!

    Oh boy, you're right about them virus thingies! I had that Norton virus and
    my computer was noticeably slower, it was awful. I changed to the eTrust
    virus thingie and my computer is a lot faster.
