It could something as simple as a BIOS setting (not optimized) in your PC that's making it appear to run slower than the 'other' PC.
Let us know what they advise.
I tried to help my parents by getting them a new desktop for X-Mas. I went and got the one CompUSA had on sale for $199. Two days later my hard drive crashes - what a good excuse to get a new system also! But by then all the $199 systems were gone - so I got the system that met our needs. But I'm confused....it seems like my parents have the better processor but it is running like molasses right out the box-except for the internet. Also, when I try to set screen resolution under "mom's" user name it also applies it to "dad's" user name even though they both have administrative privileges.

Ok....I think I may have answered my question. I never noticed the Bus Speed differences but I remember reading somewhere thaty has an impact on the computers speed. Am I on the right track? Is there any thing I can do to speed it up? Thanks!
