What program do i find these instructions in?

Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, which will take a few minutes and need a reboot. You should disable the antivirus programme to run this and check it is running after the reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor

Nope didnt work. I aldo tried age of empires 3 and the graphics look good except for when im looking over water i see lines in the water. Is my card just bad should i send it back, i mean i would think if the card isnt working, then nothing should look good or everything should look perfect......And also, i think after doing the utilities for my internet, well i think it made my downloads slower that it used to be.

Thank You for letting me know

Are you swapping it for these

Radeon X1900 series allows you to get incredible gaming performance by adding a Radeon X1900 Crossfire Edition graphics card for ultra fast performance that works with all games, all the time.
