I recently had Windows xp reinstalled. It seems to be very slow, especially when more than one browser is open.
Half of the time it was telling me I had connecivity issues and couldn't get onto the web or im, even though the connection
looked fine. Now IE gives an error and closes almost every time I open it. (IE/msn/messenger/whatever has encountered an error and needs to close, do you want to send an error report) It's also been restarting with no warning,
usually when I'm clicking in a browser or something. Messenger told me that it failed to connect, could be due to improper proxy or firewall settings and showed alert signs by IE's offline setting & key ports.
And sometimes everything works. :whistling: If anyone can help, It'd be much appreciated
Thanks :blink:

Oh, and everytime I download something it won't let me fully install it. Something about a win32 error sometimes...

It really sounds like the the OS installation is bad. It happens. Sometimes there is a hiccup during the installation and things go awry.

The fact that you get a win32 error leads me to believe that it is a bad load. I've seen it before.

First step would probably be to try to do a repair install. If that doesn't fix it then wipe it and start fresh.

I would make sure before-hand that you have documented what devices are installed and have the appropriate drivers.
