Hi, I'm a bit of a computer thicky. My laptop boots astonishingly slowly now............as in about 5 minutes. I have used defrag & regularly use Norton clean sweep, and also use registry mechanic. It has few other programmes on it.
I suspect it is because, it came loaded with Win 98, I put Me on it and then XP...
More than anything else, Windows XP needs a lot of memory. The minimum for reliable operation is 128M, so if this laptop has less than that, it will be slow to do anything, and will also be prone to crashing and stalling.
