I was wondering if someone could help me. I have been having some difficulties with my (very old) computer, and I think I have solved some of them on my own.

A couple of weeks ago, my computer was getting really hung up over the simplest operations - like cutting and pasting in microsoft office programs. I discovered that I had less than 10% of disk space left on the c: drive, so I deleted some stuff, moved a bunch of stuff over to an external hard drive and after finding that my daughter had over 20% of the memory in her folder, I was finally able to defragment the hard drive - yay! So, my programs are running terrific at the moment.

However, just recently, I have been having difficulties using the internet. For the last couple of days, anytime I try to visit a website, it takes up to five minutes to load, which makes the use of it extremely difficult. I would rather use my phone, which is saying something :). I have run Anti-Malware Bytes with nothing malicious coming up, and I am currently running SUPER Anti-Spyware, just to see if it comes up with anything that the other didn't.

My computer is pretty old, probably circa 2002 or so, and it is running Windows XP with server pack 3 (I believe...). Not sure what else you need to help me, so let me know and I can hopefully answer it for you.

Any help you could offer would be appreciated.

Click Start, then Run.

Type msinfo32 and hit Enter.

Copy and paste this information in your next post.


Also, how do your webpages load in Safe Mode With Networking?

How to Access Safe Mode With Networking

While the computer is turning on, tap F8 repeatedly until a black screen with white text appears. Using your arrow keys highlight the option Safe Mode With Networking and hit Enter.

Note: If you're using Windows XP, connect to your modem or router with an Ethernet cable, then follow these directions.
