Press CTRL + ALT + DEL, and click the performance tab. How much CPU is being used? Make sure there isn't something running in the backround using 100% CPU, slowing you down.
System Idle Process is just a named representation of what's not being used by other resources. If it's not at 99% when you're doing nothing, the find out what's using the rest of it.Originally Posted by mofos
Get HijackThis and scan your system, then go to the HJT homepage forums for help.
2 things will definitly help you here:
1) use normal sized letters when you post, this is just to damn annoying
2) windows need a complete reinstall every now and then......... that is, unless you feel like cleaning up everything (like the registry) yourself........ if you do feel like it, chances are you'll fuck something up and have to reinstall anyway (unless you really know your way around the registry)
Yes, Windows needs a complete re-install every couple of years or so. Anyone that tells you it needs it sooner either installs too much crap or doesn't know what they're doing.Originally Posted by Storm
well it al depends on how much you install of course, thats why i hate installing anything....... but if you play alot of games, you can drastically see the lifetime shorten......
XP is a big improvement over say 98 btw........
