    Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version
    OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 32 bit
    Processor: Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5400 @ 2.70GHz, x64 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 10
    Processor Count: 2
    RAM: 2815 Mb
    Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 7050 / NVIDIA nForce 620i, 256 Mb
    Hard Drives: C: Total - 476837 MB, Free - 417647 MB;
    Motherboard: eMachines, EMCP73VT-PM
    Antivirus: McAfee Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware, Updated and Enabled

    My desktop is running extremely slow when loading sites.

    Here are the things that I have tried:

    1. Updated all the drivers
    2. Updated Java and Flash.
    3. Checked my internet speed (3 times) and it is running at the speed I have contracted with the provider.
    4. Ran Advanced System Care 8 & CCleaner.
    5. Ran the windows troubleshooter.
    In my Control Panel- Action Center I get a message that says;
    Microsoft JVM is not working properly because it isn't compatible with this version of Windows.

    Anyone's help will be greatly appreciated

    3GB of RAM would be 3072MB, video is using 256MB (1MB unaccounted for)
    You need to increase the RAM to 4GB. Even though a 32 bit version of Windows can only use about 3.5MB, you will notice the increse.
    I've made sure all our Windows 7 computers are running 4GB. I've talked a friend into buying more RAM so two of his slow computers would be peppier. He has noticed the difference.

    As far as Java, MS discontinued java with Windows 2000. You should not have MS JVM on a windows 7 computer.
