Re: Make my computer run faster
make sure you dont have too much crap at startup, like quicktime, wtf is that for. it sucks lol.
anyway also defragment, run a disk cleaner (like ccleaner), uninstall programs you dont want, delete any files you dont want to so have a good amount of free space left.
512mb is ok for xp, but if you are running quite a few programs and stuff at once then id consider upgrading, or atleast not putting so much pressure on your computer, as the cpu and ram is ok, but could be better.
