    possibly you need more RAM ? my computer has been slow the last few months, and i remember it said something about ram. also something about virtual memory.

    do you visit many porn sites? i ask this because porn sites put all sorts of monitoring programs on your computer without you even realising, these and various other programs load in the background, which may be one of several factors causing your computer to go slow.


    what i recommend is that you put all your data on to a CD and then re-install windoes, if your laptop is an older version dont install XP, but rather 98.

    do you have that much stuff on your hardrive? if its all basically pictures and text documents (you said you dont run many programs) you could put them in a folder, open up a web based email account and send everything to that address fill it right up then wait till you go to someones house who does have a burner and do it there.

    think about it, do you reeeeeally need all that stuff? how long has it been since you lookes at half the stuff?

    start--->run--->msconfig ---> startup... make sure you dont have a shit load of stuff running automatically when you start your computer... I.E kazza if you have it.

    and virtual memory is ram.. am i correct? cause im palying this game sometimes and it stops.. like not enough virtual memory. im just gonna go pick up a stick of ram for 40 bucks.. make my shit run smoooooooother.

    i dunno. its a dell latitude cp laptop from about 2 years ago or so

    seems to be running okay now
    its only at a 87% load which means it probably wont crash soon
