Thanks Tommie,

Having the computer off today has made a difference, but will only last for a short time, then back to slow speed. The things from the achieves link you sent me, I do quite often, I use webroot spy sweeper, webroot windows washer, registry fix, mcafee virus scan, defrag and scan disc. Then I dont want to use the pc anymore :mad2: Plus i installed another 512 ram thing, kicked the tower and yelled at it, didnt help much  :lol: I'm gonna run some maintanence and try another test. Thanx tommie
