I need help really bad, the computer I have right now is not my own, which has Windows XP on it(thank god)
the one I am using is running Windows ME. I have all of two programs that start up with windows, and no matter what I do my system resources end up falling below 10%.
Here are the specs of this computer
319 MB RAM
Intel Celeron Processor
27.9 GB hard drive 24.2 GB free
I have two programs that start up with windows, and no matter what I do my system resources end up falling below 40% as soon as I connect to the internet.
I use Netzero HiSpeed Internet(because it is THE only thing I can get, at least for now. I am stuck with dial up. By the way I only connect at 28800 kbps. I know "lucky me"
When I am on the internet I can have one window open and everything is fine, but if I go to open a new IE window my system resources fall dangerously low (<5%).
On start up I usually have between 60 and 65% free resources, which to me is not ideal at all.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to free up the resources? I have to use this computer for my college courses since I have to submit papers , assignments, etc online.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Please XXXXXXXXXXXXX me because that will be easier for me.
