EDITOR'S NOTE: Whoever installed XP should have the disk, and the product key, if it's a legally purchased copy...

Hey, you know another thing that may help is getting rid of tracking cookies some websites give your computer. You can do that by using your yahoo toolbar and using anti-spy. Very quick to do. And your information was great too!

EDITOR'S NOTE: I don't think dumping cookies will speed up your system. Ultimately, it will probably slow you down, because you'll have to re-enter data in the web forms that were saved.

My cpu is opperating at 1.86 mhz. How can I get the speed up to at least 2.0 mhz or better?

EDITOR'S NOTE: Buy a 2 MHz processor? Overclocking is sometimes possible but can result in overheating. I don't recommend it.

I had that warming on my computer that my virtual memory was low and I don't even know what it is. I went to your site and followed your instructions and it has improved immensely. It was slower than a stage coach so to speak. this computer is 4 years old with 40 gig hard drive and 512 of ram, not much by today's computers. I am going to have a look at the XP Speed up. Thanks a lot, I will be visiting your site in the future.

I've found a great program that can clean your registry your browser history and all sort s of other things that really speeds up your computer. The program is called CCleaner and is a very dependable program. This site trusted and is guaranteed to be spyware free. Try it and you will most likely notice a difference in speed.

EDITOR'S NOTE: I'm guessing you are concerned about the warranty. If so, I don't think any vendor is concerned about software changes.

I am using Windows XP OS. I found that some of my files in Windows and system32 folder were in blue colour . Is this is a virus? I scanned my PC usinf Free AVG software.

EDITOR'S NOTE: No, the blue files are just compressed. You may see green files as well, they are encrypted.

The simplest and best way to speed up your computer is to format it and install Ubuntu 8.04 linux and have no need for all the antivirus spyware garbage and no registery. It runs circles around Vista.. Ed

I am using a new PC with Core 2 duo and 2 GB RAM but still I an get error low on virtual memeory I followed the steps U told about virtual memory but still the error persist. what should I do?

EDITOR'S NOTE: Something is chewing up your system memory. I suggest you start the Task Manager (press Ctrl+Alt+Delete once) and then click on the Processes tab. Now click on the Mem Usage column header and it will sort the processes by the amount of memory used. Let me know what you see as the top memory gobblers.

My older computer (Windows XP) no longer allows me to get into the "internet options" under "tools" on Internet Explorer. It gives me a message indicating I have to check with the Systems Administrator". I used to be able to make changes there, but something happened to prohibit me from getting in. Can you provide any assistance? Thanks, Denise
