Anything to do with adobe can slow a pc right down,due to updating and the amount of system resources it hogs. .My pc was crawling untill i uninstalled all things adobe.
Also zone alarm can cause a pc to be slow to load and uses a fair bit of system resources.
Without more info i have nothing else i'm afraid.

Hi, you need to establish if you have just a slow computer, or a slow internet connection or perhaps both.

Assuming you are using XP, then initially, I suggest rebooting the computer, immediately open Task Manager/ Processes tab and note how many processes are running. Then open the Performance tab and make a note of the cpu usage.

How much RAM is installed? XP needs at least 512 MBs or it will be sluggish.

Let us know the results.

Is there any reason why you are going round opening old threads.Last month it was Supertechgeek now you, just wondering if you are one and the same person.Is it an advertising ploy or are you just interested in helping.I have my doubts but maybe the Forum Editor will be monitoring it.
