this is a fast computer; opening things on my hard drive is instantaneous and when i check verizon's online speed test it says i have 4-6 mb, yet it takes a while to open the simplest webpage. thanks, boyd.

of course. i went into "add and remove programs" and found some stuff i didn't think i needed. i checked it out and found it to be malware. i removed it there and then went to "c drive" program files and removed it there, too. seems to have made it much faster. thanks, boyd.
