sloooooowwwwww computer

I am using my parents computer and this thing (dell) with windows xp is super slow. Any suggestions on speeding it up? Using AT&T DSL . Some site load quick others make the computer freeze up.

Been trying for over an hour to run the test. It keeps telling it could not load? I set up an account, tried the "help" section and it still continues to say it could not load. I am giving up for the night......try again tomorrow.

Is the computer slow or is the connection slow? Go to control panel, click on system properties and see how much memory its running, the processor speed and type, and what version and service pack of XP it has. XP should run decent on 1gb of ram, but anything less and I could see it getting pretty slow.

Your thread title is somewhat vague and unclear. Are you saying that you are having problems with a slow computer?

All that does is give me/us a comprehensive picture of what's on and going on w/ your PC. It doesn't change anything, it just lets me know what I need to do.

If you'd like, I can help you get your machine starting quicker and generally running better.
