    Dear Friends, hope this finds you well.

    I have an older but pretty reliable HP nc6400 laptop.

    I'm not sure of reasons behind all this? The best it has ever operated was after a fresh install of Vista..which took a considerable amount of time.

    More recently over time it seems to "hang" more and is slower at just about everything. At Startup from Msconfig I only have the AV running. I do regular maintenance along with MWBytes, Defrag's, etc...

    I know AOL webmail and AOL software is quite bloated, but i do use it and like it overall.

    After booting the computer and logon to AOL webmail it hangs there for about a minute as one example. I do use AdBlock, but even if I disable that it still hangs.

    My question(s) would be along the lines of how can I speed things up a bit? maybe tweak things a bit. Or am I just asking too much of this laptop?

    I'd really appreciate any help or suggestions you fine folks may have in this regard short of another installation of Vista?

    Thank You!
    Sincerely, Raffaele
