My problem isn't a problem as such, more a frustration!
This week my computer has suddenly slowed down a lot, the difference being most noticable when loading programs, (especially OE) Internet pages, (especially Yahoo Mail) and in Word when I click file/print it takes ages for the print dialogue box to appear.
I haven't installed or removed any hardware or software, and I have only the essentials plus Norton AV running at startup.
I am running win98se, with 192mb RAM, Athlon 600mhz, HD 10gb (which is half-full.)
Can anyone suggest a reason for this sudden slowdown? Thanks, Ellie
Had it a while... Yep, indeed I have, almost exactly 3 years.
Format and clean install isn't a bad idea, but it would be a pain because I have a lot of large documents and freeware which are too big to back up to floppy disk and I have no CD burner. I may give it a go in a few months time, but right now I am in the middle of 2 final year dissertations, so it isn't really an option!
I shall look for a freeware registry cleaner and give that a shot.
