My comp is running XP, 2.9 gig processor. I just upgraded to IE7. My comp really runs slow now, especially when first opening IE, or after it is rebooted. I only have 256 megs of RAM. I was wondering, should I add RAM or what should I do to speed this thing up?? It has always run great, but since I put in IE7, it seems to have slowed greatly.
