Cool...loophole says you have a clean machine...
Let's see if we can get this machine running a little smoother for you.
For Virtual Memory: Click Start
, then Control Panel
, and double click on the "System
" icon. Under the "Performance" tab, click on the "Change" button for Virtual Memory. Choose the option to "Let windows manage the size" (Or similar...I haven't been on an NT machine for a while). "Apply" the changes and reboot.
Open Internet Explorer. Click on "Tools" on the toolbar and choose "Internet Options...". Under the "General" tab, click the "Delete Cookies..." and the "Delete Files..." buttons. Accept the changes if prompted.
Click Start, point to "Programs", then "Accessories", then "System Tools", and choose to run "Disk Cleanup".
Click Start, point to "Programs", then "Accessories", then "System Tools", and choose to run "Disk Defragmenter". We may have to boot you into Safe Mode to complete this one, but try it in Normal Mode first. If it hangs or starts over quite a few times, let me know.
Reboot the machine. Does it seem to be running a little faster now?
