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.

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

its only at a 87% load which means it probably wont crash soon

the less space you have on your computer the worse it will run. your operating system needs a certain amount of free space just to run properly, so if you go past that "line" things will start to fuck up a little.

if you've got a 10 gig hard drive and you fill it up to 9.9 gigs, try just surfing around your folders and into your harddrive.. shit'll be fucked. especially with 96megs ram.

 

spend the little money it is and get more ram, clean a good chunk of that harddrive out, and run a disk utility program like nortons or techtools or whatever..
