There's the clue. "140 GB hardrive (with only 13gb free)"
Vista has this feature where it's going to index all 127GB so SEARCH (might) works. What I found is that Vista likes to be left on for a day after we install everything so it's indexer gets done.
I have yet to find the kill switch for this.
OK .... lets get it out I just got a new Dell....yeah yeah I know! But for the price you cant beat it, or so I thought! But it is running so so so slow. I need help!
Internet Explorer really seems to be running the slowest and having the biggest issues, but to be honest all programs seem to have difficult or they get stuck.
Explorer will take forever to get started or to open a new site. Some time the screen goes completely black and the address box at the top becomes abnormally large as if it was in safe mode. It will eventually go back to normal and open the web site.
I am looking for any suggestions. I am not running any other programs when this happens, other than programs that run auto.
I have a dell inspiron 1520
I run my Internet on a wireless system.
I have a 140 GB hardrive (with only 13gb free)
2.0 GhZ dual core processor
2046 MB of RAM.
I ran a speed test to test my internet connection here are the results:http://www.speedtest.net/result/216036948.png
Any suggestions please ... this is driving me nuts!
Also ... I feel like I should have way more free space on my hard drive. Any suggestions about that would be appreciated too!
