Possible installation of onspeed accelerator

Impossible to tell if installation of onspeed accelerator is installed?

In reply to: Re:Re:Windows98 Explorer error message.

Just playing with the words.

You've found your issue. Almost ALL such accelerators are buggy.

Eject it with the baggage it came with. What baggage? Spyware, Adware, Pest, Parasites and more. I find machine perform better without.

Re:Impossible to tell if installation of onspeed accelerator is installed?

I occationally have a similar problem. It is most likely the fault of my ISP's (earthlink) Accelerator (basically it's Propel) which can be turned off. I leave it on though because most of the time it does help speed up my dial-up connection and the occurance of this problem is not often. If this accelerator caused this "page fault" often, I would surely disable it because restarts take up time also. If I were on a high speed connection of some type, I would surely not use this type of program. Maybe these items are something Chiefyuk should consider.
