Just generally WinMe is not slower - rare, did you temporarily disable your screen saver and anti-virus' real-time scanner (or uninstall your antivirus entirely for the install) before the installation of WinMe? Read the installation instructions in the WinMe manual or on the install CD before installing again. If not, uninstall WinMe in the Add/Remove Programs control panel; Restart twice then redo the installation right this time.

Get free Zone Alarm personal firewall anti-hacker countermeasure from http://www.zonelabs.com. (not the demo) Don't let anything out to the Internet you don't know what it is.

Update your antivirus, temporarily disable your screen saver and scan with your anti-virus set to scan All Files. Update and scan bi-monthly. Create your anti-virus' Rescue disk(s) and update after each Windows anti-virus update.

You can scan on-line to double-check your Windows scanner at http://housecall.antivirus.com
