Well firefox doesn't take low memory to run it but it is more secure then IE. Not really any good browsers out there that take low memory.

I would still check the Malware Forum and made sure really are no viruses/malware on your system that could be causing it to be so slow. When you check it out, make sure to read the START HERE first.

What are the specs of your system? CPU Speed, RAM, Hard drive capacity and space available.

Is XP or 98 the one being run on this machine? If it's XP then you need 256MB MINIMUM to run properly. Even 96MB is low for 98, I suggest 128MB.

Hi afg34...

As Fenor suggested in post #7, you need more RAM. Anymore, 96 Megs just isn't enough memory...especially if you are trying to run more than one application at a time. Check your system specs to see how much RAM your motherboard will support and add as much more as you can.
