Hello everyone!! Here's a question for you. I currently have about 28 tasks running continuously. I understand this slows the computer and browser down considerably. How do I shut down these tasks? How do I know which tasks should be running all the time and which to shut down that are not necessary (ie: virus programs, firewalls, spyware programs, etc.)? Can someone give me specific details? My op. system is Win 98 II. God bless!!:rolleyes:

Clicky on "start"
Clicky on "run"
type in "msconfig" (without the quote marks)

go to the "startup" tab

uncheck what you don't want to run

Leave your anti-virus checked

clicky "apply"
clicky"ok"

when your system restarts, be sure what you want to run is running. If it's not, go thru the steps above and re-enable them.
