I have a computer I have been working on. It has a connection to a risk server through a serial connection, a connection to a phone management server and a connection to a dsl network. After the phone nic was added and any software to access the phone management servers website the computer started running slowly. If you are typing on a site or a form it will stop typing and in about 30 seconds you will see the text like it is catching up. The computer is a 800 mhz pentium gateway with winxp pro and 448 mb of ram. The os has just recently been installed and I am pretty sure it is free of spyware and viruses.
any help would be appreciated.

Ust Task Manager - Processes tab to find out which application or program is using the resources. Its a reasonable place to start.

Yes it does see all of the ram.
I am wondering if it is a problem with the Network card or the software to run the phone management system. I am going to look at it tomorrow but was hoping to have some ammunition to take with me.

Will the software for the phone management system run in safe mode with network support? And if so, play nicer?
