Right. The only reason why i said you can't uninstall IE is because i assumed you didn't know a lot about Windows. My mistake.

That sucks! Here's the deal: every student has their own Z: drive because every student is on the same network at school. What you save on your Z: drive stays on yours and no one else but people with administrative properties (teachers, principal/assisants etc) can touch them. I downloaded Firefox onto my Z: drive. Though, i do have to go into Word, type random letters, make it a hyperlink to "C:\" and find Firefox through Windows Explorer, it's better than using IE.

my school is very restrictive on access

in my english class, the celeron's there wont even let you look through any other drives other than your personal network drive

and in my computer class there is F, G, W-Z drives. The Z drive is called "public"

Well, the easiest way to slove this would be to just back up important data, and reformat/reinstall.

But, Other then that I can't think of anything else.

Adding more RAM or a better CPU would speed it up, But I don't think you want to spend money..
