Anyway, I have an old Dell Dimension 4500S desktop I bought from Dell when I got married. That was in 2002. The PC hasn't been thru [bleep] and back, but I think it's just old. My main issue is that it takes a long time to do anything on it. Boot, shutdown, run programs, surf the internet, etc.
I'm pretty much a tech guy so I can understand the majority of the lingo and how things work. I've tinkered around in it, running Spybot:Search and Destroy, Norton Antivirus and Eusing's registry cleaner.
I check the Page file usage and it is at a solid 200 MB at rest. Just booted up and has sat there doing nothing for a half hour and it's at 200 MB.
I think it just may need more RAM but it's never been like this. Should I try a reformat? Should I just shoot the thing and be done with it? Any insight is appreciated.
