i have an Acer Aspire netbook, purchased only a few monthe ago. 250 GB hard drive 1 GB RAM The OS is Windows 7 starter. I don't use it a lot mainly for emails and accessing the internet when I am not at home.It has very few programmes and very little stored on it. Unfortunately it has become painfully slow. I often cannot connect to the internet even tho' the thingy on the bottom right hand corner tells me I am connected, when it is connected it still takes an age to get anywhere. Even opening one of the few files on it takes forever. I tried going throuhj the troubleshooting thing but it hasn't helped. Please can someone help me..I'm not sure I'm in the right forum here.
