I know all PC's get slower with age, buy why does this happen? Any way around this? Also, I checked my System Info and it has 256mb of Ram, but the 'Avaliable Physical Memory is only 17mb! I'm not sure if this is normal but it doesn't sound good!! Si

You could do a system clean by deleting your cookies/Temp files/Temp Internet files. Remeber to empty your recycle bin.

What are the specs of your computer? You can find this by typing in dxdiag in Start/Run box.
