Ok i have an AMD XP 2200 with loadsa hd space. but 9gb free on boot drive. im running xp with 512mb ddr2700. on an abit kx7 333r.

It is running very slow. when i open an aplication eg OE6 there is a 15sec delay before the little OE box opens up and then the prog starts to load.

It is the same with other appps. I have zone alarm, norton AV, MSN, kazaa running in background but it neva used to be like it on win2k.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Graham

As you are running kazaa the 1st thing to do would be to disable from starting automatically and do a full A/V and trojan check, and also stop messenger loading at start up only use it when you need it, this will free up some resources to help

Also run scandisk and disc dfragmenter.
