I have an E machine,800mhz Celeron,64mb RAM, 20GB HD. I did have Win ME and upgraded to XP.
Now it is very slow. It boots up slow, opens programs slow, and shuts down slow.Anybody have any idea why? I love the XP buthate having to wait for everything. Thanks in advance.

You need an absolute minimum of 128mb of RAM, and you really need at least 256mb for good performance with XP. I'm somewhat surprised it even runs with 64mb!

Did you do a clean install of XP, or load it on top of Me? XP runs much better if you do a clean install. I'd consider doing that if you didn't already. Definitely upgrade your memory as suggested. 128 is minimum, but I'd suggest 512.

I agree.....problem is you dont have enough memory. 256 is the minimum I would run xp on, 512 makes it much happier.
