I've been using computers and internet for (?) over 10 years, but only learn what I need as I go. Hands on. Handbook dyslexic.
I function pretty well though, and can be walked through most problems. : > )
My computer is just plain running slow. It takes awhile for any short cut to connect, for my isp to connect, my my mailbox to open, or close, and isp is very slow to disconnect. I'm not talking hours, but slow. Slower. Word is particularly slow - perhaps because it is the program I use most?
I have refreshed my desk top
and defragged my computer which still has boo coo space on it.
I remember being told I need to clean my registry. But how do I know which files are safe to delete? The ext. are greek to me.
I just upgraded my Norton's, but not to the latest definitions. I was behind in getting that done.
Something seems to be running constantly. So I turned that off temporarily. It didn't help. I turned off an automatic update for Apple Quick Time or somethin nuther.
