I upgraded to SP3 and IE 8 and now my system is crawling. I'm talking Minutes to do a "task" on the internet. It is so slow I just want to throw it out!
I have a AlienWare, bought new in 2004. It's a 3.6 ghz with Total Physical Memory 4,096.00 MB, Available Physical Memory 1.95 GB, Total Virtual Memory 2.00 GB,
Available Virtual Memory 1.96 GB, Page File Space 6.96 GB
But, before I upgraded I did a couple of very weird problems - my Disk Management Application in Control Panel disappeared which in turn will not allow me to boot up my system
with a SATA external drive and it used to.
Not sure where I go from here.... I'll leave it in your competent hands.
