  Spr 09:47 26 Jan 2005

I am using my old PC running Windows XP, PenIII 1000hz 512mb ram GForce 2MX Graphic Card. Everything is very slow it take two or three times using the mouse to open program. Games run jerkly I have download the lastest drives for the Graphic Card the games would open I have since un-installed them. I am Virus clean so Norton 2005 tells me.

also try a scan disk as well, there may be some bad sectors on your HDD

on XP, the easiest way to do this is to right click on the harddrive under my computer, select properties, go to the tools tab, and select scan disk (or is it check disk? i can't remember). check both the boxes on the pop up that appers. windows will now tell you that it can't do the scan disk, and asks if you want to schedule it for next time windows restars, select yes, and then reboot
