Hi everyone,
I have visited here before and found lots of helpful posts. I am trying to develop an intuitive understanding of computers and the web. I basically just surf forums and comparison shop places like amazon, CC, etc. Love to read reviews before buying or downloading.
Like to install and run free maintenance programs like AVG, Adaware, C cleaner, Spybot trying to run safe things only.
This bottom end Pentium 4 slows down after 1/2 hour of above surfing but will post this on another forum.

Dell Dimension 2400 (2003)
added RAM to total 768 MB probably need more (can go to 2GB)
Windows XP Home with auto updates
Use I. E. 7.0

Thanks in advance for help and correction of my misperceptions!
