its not just load time, but slow when I click on IE or try to load other programs, its lags for a couple seconds like the old computers with not enough RAM used to do. you know click, wait, click wait, etc.

Is it the same version of XP on both PC's? Is the one on your 2.8 pirated? If so there could be something wrong with the install disk.
