Default What?

Hey guys. Few months ago, about late August, I decided to download the FireFox browser. I heard a lot of praise coming from the people who have FF and I decided to give it a try. Everything went perfect. That is until my friend gave me a Windows XP OEM CD (I wanted to wipe my HDD for reasons that I can't explain). So I popped in the CD and it went well. Than my PC froze. So I pushed the power button and reset the machine. I took out the CD and stored it somewhere. When I went online and opened up my FF browser it noticably LAGGED in performance. Before I put the CD in, it was (in my opinion) pretty fast! After it slowed to nothing but a crawl! It says that the operation TIMED OUT (weird). So what happend?

I may be a bit vague so please SPEAK UP. I have ( dialUp ) and run for my orignal browser AOL 9.0. I run FireFox Beta 2.

PS: Dont say "Forget AOL, it sucks." That seems to be out of the question for now. Same goes to "Why Dialup? Get broadband" It's a BIT farfecthed right now.

And Thanks. I appreciate ALL the help.

why can't you explain why you want to wipe out your hard drive? we're all friends here.....
Also, if your friend gave you a windows xp oem cd which was installed on another computer,,,it's illegal to use it on another one.
