I'm not exactly sure where this should go ont he forums, so I'm goign to post it here.

My computer runs Windows XP on a Dell. I bought this computer sometime in 2001, and over the years I have re-installed Windows XP multiple times in order to whipe out everything and start over. The computer simple runs too slow, however, I don't think it's because I have used too much space. I only have used 6.5 GB out of the 37.2 GB available. I know it's not much, but I only need a computer to browse the web, check email, and use Microsoft Word and print documents.

I don't know if you'll need any more information to solve my problem, but please let me know if there is. I really need help with this, thanks.

I actually have another problem too. When I close out of IE 7, I get a message, and when I close out that, another message pops up.

1st Pop-up:
The exception unknown software exception (0X0eedfade) occured in the application at location 0x7c812a5b.

2nd Pop-Up:
Runtime Eror 217 at 032DFB4A.

I've followed those instructions, but the add-on it says to disable is not listed in any of the ad-on list.

EDIT: I found a place that said that Norton Browser Helper could also cause this problem. So I disabled it, and now it works perfectly.
