Hey all,

I have a 1.1GHz Dell Inspiron 2600. Not really impressive or modern, but it works. Now, when I first installed Windows 2000, it ran great. As I installed stuff, naturally it got slower. I know that to speed it back up, I can play with the services, or the stuff in Startup, but I damaged my wireless drivers and had to reinstall them just because of tinkering with stuff in services and startup. I had a funky case where after I logged in, my desktop wouldn't load until I pressed CTRL-ALT-DEL...obviously I only know enough about this stuff to get myself into trouble. I put what I could remember back in the condition it was in, and I am running stable, but slowly. I would like to know, how do I speed up my system safely?

Oh, BTW I have everything acting normally now, no funky desktop display, etc. so I don't need help fixing it.

Thanks,
JBotAlan

You might have some problems in your registry.

Download Registry Mechanic from www.pctools.com and install/run it. Go to options and make sure all the scanning options are selected. How many things come up?

Maybe I shouldn't ressurect an old post, but I forgot I had a thread open...

I had a crapload of problems in registry, but I could only clean some with Reg Mechanic because its crippled shareware...I used Crap Cleaner to find and fix the issues, and a re-scan of Reg Mechanic shows that I have fixed all the errors. YAY FREEWARE!!! Anyhow, it isn't ANY faster...at all...so...I really don't know what to do next.

Thanks for the help and patience,
JBotAlan
