slow performance is usually the result of accumulated software crud over the months/years and the increasing demands of software. suggest you google "optimize xp" or consider doing a fresh reinstall of xp with sp3. optimizing can help a lot, but a fresh reinstall should help the most.
Hi everybody, I have been having troube lately with slow response time and sometimes freezes. I have 1gig ram on a Dell 4550. I have tried killing processes running via the task manager to free memory. I'm just getting slow response. Does memory ever get old and wear out, if so I will get 2 new 512K memory sticks from Tiger direct.
Thanks Jay R.
