What I can do is surf, not very good at anything tech, but can follow simple instructions I think!!
My biggest problem appears to be with virtual memory..My PC has only 128, and at present I am not in a position to increase this. I have been doing searches for any tweaks that may help with the problem, at present I have my VM set to min 192 and max 192 (following advice) I am told that XP uses a lot of memory, even without what I personally use..??
I do not play games , or anything that eats it up like that..I do a lot of surfing TE and use FF with several tabs open..and then it slows right down while VM catches up..I don't think I am using anything to excess to cause this..I have taken advice and run msconfig to see if I can deselect any start-up programs, problem is I don't know what I need and what I don't, so a bit scared of deselecting in case I do more harm than good, if I knew how to show you what I have in there I would..I do my defrag, have spyware/adaware/AVG, all those things regularly
Any and all advice would be gratefully received..
Kind Regards barbuk
