hello,

after reading a webpage based on systems performance, i right clicked 'MY computer' went to the performance tab and found that my Systems Resources is at 15% free!

could this be the reason my computer is slow?

it is a dell latitude cpi, 128RAM pentium 2 mmx.

i also ran RegCleaner and found many Reg keys that are 'useless' but iam not sure if i should delete them just incase.

is there a way to increase my systems resources?

Cleaning the registry probably won't free up any resources so I'd leave that alone for the moment.
A couple of questions:

How much hard drive space do you have left?
Have you cleaned the temp,history,cookies and temp internet files recently?
Do you restart your P.C on a regular basis?

Hi Green_punk

You probably have far too many programs running at startup which you do not need

Do this and we'll check it out for you :-

If you post your startup list we may be able to spot something

Please post your startup list by doing the following :-

Please go here and download startuplist 1.51 :-

http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/

Download to any folder or your desktop
Unzip the zipfile
Double click the exe file
go to Edit - select all - copy - and paste the results in a new post here

Well I'm surprised, I thought you would have had a lot more programs starting that were not necessary, instead you have a pretty clean startup

When you looked at your resources did you have more programs running, and did you have a lot of ie windows open, and I mean a lot

Try this :- go to
Start
Programs
Accessories
System tools
Resource meter

Then use Ctrl-Alt-Del to close programs one at a time - checking your resource meter each time - see if you can determine which program is using the bulk of your resources
