I can't use IE at all it shuts my computer down so I have been using Opera for a while and it keep getting slower and slower.....I have tweaked XP and Opera as much as possible and the same goes for Opera...I clean the history and restart Opera and it is fast for like 10 minutes and i know on the opera forum almost everyone said they had the same problems....

I can not afford to buy more RAM at this moment.....I have taken all the preloaded programs of my computer and only have the basic programs but I dont know what other browser I should use....I tried firefox but it acted like IE....I have 34.5 GB of free space on my hard drive....

No matter, what you do, XP with 128MB of RAM will be slow like molasses.

A 256 meg stick of ram for your computer might be as little as 14$ shipped here in the USA, it's your only solution.


No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Give K-Meleon a try. This is the fastest and and at the same time updated browser known to work on Windows.

I wouldn't change anything until you stick at least 1 gig of ram in your computer. You will think you bought a new computer. Check your motherboard manufacture site for the proper ram.
