    I see NO anti-virus or firewall program on your computer do you want me to give you links to free ones that you can install as you should really have them on your computer these days .......

    Trev12:

    Click Start - Run, type in MSCONFIG, then click OK - Starytup(tab).

    Make sure there is a checkmark in the following:

    ScanRegistry (This one and SystemTray should always remained checked)

    You can uncheck the following because they don't need to be running in the background:

    bwtray.exe Read here.

    MotiveSB.exe Read here.

    WildTangent Read here.
    (Unless you're into on-line gaming)

    ypager.exe Read here.

    msnmsgr.exe Read here.
    (The above two can be manually activated when you're ready to chat. There's no need to have them load during startup)

    Once you're done, click Apply - OK, then reboot.

    The smaller you keep the startup load, the better your computer will run. (y)

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Click Start - Find - Files And Folders, select the hard drive to look in, then delete everything that appears under:

    *.TMP

    C:\TEMP\*.*

    C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\*.*


    regardless of what the filename is or if you receive any warning not to delete something. Get rid of it all.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    How much RAM is installed in that computer and what speed is the processor?

    The processor is slow and there's probably 192 MB of RAM installed(with an "on-board" display adapter using the other 5 MB), but Windows 98 will run okay on it - as long as you keep the startup load trimmed down, stay away from fancy wallpaper and screensavers, keep the junk cleaned out, and keep the hard drive defragged.
