Test 2

This is a similar test to my last post only using
IE6 instead of Firefox....

So far this is not as bad as it sometimes can be...however
I have not used as many pages as I normally would or watched
videos or used java....

I can see a slight flickering as I write... but its not as
bad as what it usually is...

I will do another test to compare Firefox against IE6 either later today
or in the next day or two when Ive been online a while and used youtube
and java programs...

Hi Sal,

Just a update..

I have ran the computer a week or so, and as I mentioned before,
it does seem better on firefoxs browser and maybe IE6 is one of my problems.

I have noted though that I have also had problems with closing or freezing up some of my other
software files such as "My Documents" files or "Paint" if I save photos or images.

This again is usuaually if I have several webpages open... The more I have open
the more I have a problem with freezing up or not being able to close files
without getting "end Now" messages..

Other than that IF I am running IE6 with just say 3 to 5 pages open, it seems overall not too bad..

Im away a couple of days...

Cheers

Probably windows taking time allocating resources.
