windows key + pause break key should pull up the system properties and tell you your cpu make/model

to determine actual speed
go to START, RUN
type in DXDIAG
press OK or ENTER
on main screen it should tell you the cpu and the speed its running at ~791 etc....

good luck

hi Swiper thanks for the input, but it dont say what speed it is. but i found out what ram it is. is there another way to find out the MHZ?


and i just want to fix a couple other things, when i startup i get the message, it says type in your user name and password, is there a way to just save that so i dont have to type it in every time i start it up? thanks.

To find out the processor speed with Win9x
Start / Run / WINREP.EXE

Then click on Change System File Selections
Shortly it will show the COMPSPEED

As far as the trial software you can always just uninstall it if you don't need it. If that has been done and the shortcuts are still showing up in the Start Menu, you can right click and delete whatever you don't want.

..."my Start menu is on the left side"... Do you mean that the grey Task Bar with the quick launch icons has moved to the left?

If so left click an hold down on a clear grey area and drag it back to the bottom.
