I have regretted the day I bought a Dell computer from Ubid with Win ME as the op sys. I have so many freeze ups and loss of able to run certain programs and have to reboot that I am almost at the point of trashing ME, formatting the hard drive and reloading Win 98 2nd Ed. Is this common? My Gold Mine program goes goofy for a half hour everytime I have to reboot. GM tech support says that they are aware of the problem with ME and say they think it has something to do with the video driver. Seems earlier versions of Norton are incompatible with ME. What gives??????? Mr Gates ought to be sued for defective op sys. Any help out there?
