I dont think it's a "problem". I dont know if this would make any difference, but do the drives have the same kinnda "arrangement"? Is the master on PC#1 the same as on PC#2... If you understand what I mean (I dont, somtimes).

They may be setup the same, but if one of them isn't at 100% performance for one reason or another, that could account for the differences.

defrag possible

but startup items and computer running stuff is not possible.

i done exactle the same thing on both,

install XP
install drivers from c.d
install anti virus
install windows updates
install second life
and problem begins here.

in all honesty guys i dont think i will know anything until monday when i have the time to do the things mentioned so i will probably post back then
