    XP home sp2
    P3 cpu 2.93 ghz
    504 mb ram
    160 mb Maxtor hdd
    I can't download anything as the downloader drops to .1 a few seconds after
    starting.The web pages get about 2/3rds done and stops.I have run
    Spydoc,Stinger,Xoftspy & Trend all in safe mode then a second time & they
    showed no bad stuff the second time.I have a backup hdd so I hooked it up &
    it ran O.K I donot have the two hdd's connected at the same time so I guess
    my question is what could make the main hdd do this ?
    All help is much appreciated

    Guessing that you are using some version of Internet Explorer, then perhaps
    you should check the disc space, the size of the swap file, and whether IE
    has enough room for its 'cache'. Even a 'defrag' can make a big difference
    if your HD is formatted to FAT 32 and getting more than half full.

    I'm afraid my guessing machine is on the fritz tonight so I can't seem to
    scry what web site(s) you may be having difficulty with.
