Re: "Computer is Slow" Problem Need options [winxp home]
well number 1 if you have more than 4 processes running in the background other than antivirus,firewall sound and other normal windows processes running you have a problem...... try to disable anysoftware that would start up with windows xp. example ? nero, roxio, AIM and MSN or trillian scanner and printer software junk, bittorent clients or p2p software and etc.... all that can REALLY slow down xp alot which would cause your computer to lag and after all the services have loaded up and running after about 15 minutes its gonna be real hard for xp home or pro to keep up, which can lead errors and software conflicts and the occasional crash and reboot if things get real ugly...
Hope that helps.
