First I would like to thank 1101doc for the help I have been using from his assistance to another user.

I followed those suggestions because i too have a pretty slow Dell with Windows Home XP2.
Additionally, I was thinking it might speed up the challenges I have been having with being able to click on "delete" and have it work in a reasonable amount of time.

Is this something to do with the mouse or what??? I have tried to do repairs from the add/remove in the control panel and that hasn't improved it either.

I guess it isn't the end of the world or anything but it is certainly annoying.

Thank you for any suggestions. :whistling:

Hi headwayne...

Can you define "pretty slow Dell" for me? Is the machine sluggish in opening applications? Scans take a lot longer than you think they should?

How's the sound when you play a cd? How about when you play a song stored on the HDD? Is it choppy or static sounding?
