win xp p4 1.8ghz 256 ram. Computer is too slow on and off line. Yes I've got anti virus and free spybot stuff - prob not the best but I don't feel that's my problem. I'm considering joining the ranks of DSL (intallation is another geek question for another day). I just started searching for stuff like memory I'll even buy on eBay if it's compatible???/best price??? Any direction to help me out (memory/ ram / other)? I'm going to sleep now. I hope I can find my answers when I log back on tomorrow!

What kind of machine? Open your task manager to running processes and check your available memory against your memory commitment under browsing conditions and running some apps. And how many; apps are you running in task manager? Thirty to forty is normal for XP.

Look at these sites and see if they help:

2.http://www.hardavenu...startuplist.php
3.http://www.3davenue.com/startup/y.php

To uninstall you can go to control panel then click on add or remove programs then find the program you wanna delete and click remove.

You realy dont need to upgrade I think. I have a 872 mhz p3 265 ram and its really fast i think. you should be able to close all the programs with your name as the user name.
