I ran Cleanup and will do a defrag after I am done here. Out of 32GB of available space, I am showing roughly 7GB Free Space, or about 20%. I have sent a Hijack log over to malware to have that checked out. (but since that might take a day or two, I thought I would get started here.
THE PROBLEM: From my desktop to here took over 4 minutes. It is the same no matter which site page I try to enter.
After I am at a site, the navigation is immediate. When I move on to another it is 4 to 5 min. The top of the page shows "Windows Internet Explorer", the turnung blue donut in the URL box and my Google toolbar, and the bottom status bar shows "website found, waiting for a reply" but the field stays blank. If I try to close that page it is almost like a freeze, and takes a few minutes till it closes and I have my Desk Top back to try another. I called Comcast and they ran a connection test and gave me a clean connection sheet.
This might be another subject, but when I got Comcast (which has bee running great for 2 weeks now) Along with it came the complete McAfee Security Pkg. In an attemp to clean up some of the garbage in my hard drive, do I still need to keep things such as Avast....AdAware SE,,,,Spybot....Antivirus....etc? Also, when I went from Win 98 to XP Home I was told to keep the 98 files.....Do I really need to keep them in my hard drive? I do have my Win 98 & XP cd's if needed. Also, are there Items that are sitting idle from the SP2 pkg that are obsolete die to the new McAfee completee security pkg?
Yeah..I know...a lot of questions but I would appreciate your point of view on these issues.
Somewhere (maybe over that rainbow) I know there is instant acess to sites on the web.
Thank you so much for your time on this......HIPSTER
I will check back after I let the defrag run while I sleep tonight, (usually takes a few hours) and hopefully after someone has a chance to go over my log.
