Download, install, and run Tune Up 2006 Trial
Run "Tune Up Disk Clean-up"
Run "Tune Up Registry Clean-up"
Click "Optimize and Improve" to run Reg Defrag, the screen will lose colour during the process which can take a few minutes and then reboot.
Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors.
The following are suggestions for making the most of the free trial.
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" and select the speed just above your actual connection speed...this also requires a reboot.
After the reboot, click Optimize", then "System Optimizer" to run "System Advisor".
Any improvement in performance?

System advisor came up with these suggestions:
lower color depth of computer (monitor I take it?)
do not use auto startup (when that screen come up I always check take no action) enough correction here?
IE has too much memory
Admins. shares are enabled (security risk)
Tm Proxy.exe using high amt. of memory
background image uses resouces (have corrected this)
not real sure how to address the others. Maybe can figure out the color depth of monitor by fiddling around with the buttons on it.

Let me ask you this, before you change anything. How is the machine running? Is it getting closer to what you are looking for?

And re the rest of PC performance - hey I am satisfied; not broken so why fiddle around and "break it"!
That Tune Up program so impressed me, just might buy it when the trial period is up. Would like to get away from having to rely on PC techs were I am at. I think every and anyone who can operate a PC hangs out his shingle as a PC technician. Ego be d---- half the time I know more than they do.

If you're happy with the way the machine is running, leave things as they are. None of the things the Advisor listed was critical. Trust me, you would not be too impressed with 16 bit color...
After you've used it a while, if you want to do a little more tweaking...we can do a few things, but use it for a while and see how it does.

Starting back to work (teacher at a college) and so will be using the PC for school business and lesson plans. The new speed will be very helpful.
If I want further help here can I contact you or must I just post and work with whomever?
THANKS THANKS THANKS
