I just got a used Acer Aspire 3000-3004 I'm not sure. It says 3004 on back but 3000 on everything else. I first started it and opened IE to get Chrome installed, but IE was scrolling on it's own. I thought this might be some kind of infection so I came here first to find out. Has someone taken over this pc? Wanted to get some advice before I even did a scan with free AVG antivirus. I also have Recovery discs if that is the beast way to go, and, considering it is Used - perhaps this is the best thing to do. I have another Laptop running Linux if needed, this new used laptop will be for Windows needs.
In System Properties I removed the Tick in the box for "Allow Remote invitations to be sent from this compter"
It says 2GB of Virtual memory, that means it's got 2 GB of RAM right?
Another question: The C:Drive says that only 10GB is being Used and 69.6 of free space. Is that possible with an XP install, seems very small to me.
XP Home Edition 32bit SP3 Buid 2600
