I am still trying to get this computer my mother gave me up and running. Slower than molasses in January. Took 4 min to load geeks. I have already done the cleaning and malware removal route and that hasn't worked to speed this up. I talked to my ISP provider who sent me to a speed test site to find out if there were problems. It came up with 19 OSP severe issues, 19 browser severe issues and 511 pc performance critical issues. I have tried saving the information that it states is an issue, but unless I pay for the whole program then al they can do is tell me the issues. I would love to update this computer to use Windows 7, and have all the necessary requirements EXCEPT the video card and when I emailed Acer about it they informed me that they do not carry updated drivers for OSP that were not insalled at time of purchase.
Right now it's taking so long to load even just Mozzilla or Chrome there's no point in me trying to do anything on the web.
Right now here are my specs maybe someone out there can help, I did notice that most of the issues were registry issues but I'm not that great when it comes to poking around the registry.
2 gig ram
windows xp sp 3
Please let me know what other information you required .
I am wondering if it would be easier to find the factory reset and start from scratch, since most of the errors are programs my mother loaded and she had no idea on what she was doing.
