I have a failry powerful computer and used to be able to do work in Windows Explorer whilst downloading files from say Ares or Limewire.
But lalety I find that Explorer goes so slow that it takes about 30 seconds to rename a file ! And it often comes up with the torch trying to find the files in a folder !
It seems to be random as sometimes my Explorer goes at normal speeds whilst downloading.
Any ideas ?
I use virus checkers and anti-spywares etc. In ME I used to be able to check my system resources but can't find out how to do this in XP.
Also I often read in forums from users who say they do not like such and such program because it hogs their resources. How do they know how much resources a program takes up ?
