Hello all,

I have:
MSI 648 Max 533 Mhz mobo
P4 2.0Ghz Processor
512 DDR Ram
60GB Western Digital HDD
Cable Modem
Sound Blaster 5.0 Live
Radeon 8500 128Mb Vid Card
Linksys 10/100 Lan Card

Programs running:
Win 98 SE
MSN Msngr
Task Scheduler
Type 32 (MS Keyboard)
EM_Exec (Logitech Mouse)
Norton Personal Firewall
MS Office Shortcut Bar
Norton Anti-Virus

For some reason it seams that my system is running slow
System resources show only 66% free (varies slightly between 65-75%). I run defrag twice a week and scandisk once a month. Any suggestions as to what is the problem, or how I can find out?
Thanks,
PaveFE:confused:

End task MSN Msngr, Task Scheduler, Norton Personal Firewall,
MS Office Shortcut Bar, and Norton Anti-Virus. Then look at how much your resources increase (don't open any programs when doing this). you should have like 90% or higher free. If you do, then those programs are slowing you down.

But I want to keep them on, especially the Firewall. Also, I didn't have this problem a few weeks ago. Norton AV runs everynight too.

Doing this won't disable them permanently. When you restart your computer, those programs will be running again. This is just to see if those programs are using up your resources.

I have twice that running and a 500MHz with 256M RAM and have 80% free. You have something there eating up your system resources. Try ending task on some like nothingface suggested and see what happens.

I have everything turned off except
Explorer
Systray
Em_Exec (Logitech mouse)

and I'm still only getting 84% Free

I would think I should have much better performance with what I have.

:confused:

I just ended task on all but systray, explorer, em(mouse) and IE (a game I am playing) and had 90% free.
Can you post what you have in Startup?
