bump

I've seen the word 'bump' in several threads of late. Am I missing something or is this a secret code between all you experts??

Was thinking exactly the same myself but didn't like to ask. Prefer Laymans language myself.

bump/refresh. it just gets your question back up to the top of page 1.

tulix,is the problem with your PC slowing down or your internet connection slowing?

Is just a way of pushing a thread to the top of the board to try to get peoples attenhtion.

tulix - have you defragged recently?

maybe have the dodgy windows update installed click here which can cause XP systems to slow.

ok checked my updates its non of those.i have very little hard drive space used.it just cant handle doing like 2 things at the same time.without it slowing down.i have done a format recently is there something in the bios that i havent checked.like size of memory or something like that.i am not exactly up to date on those issues
