Is it Vista, or is it not enough memory?
My Vista computer from 2008 was a real dog...browsers crashed alot, pages often took alot of time to load, and towards the end, I'd get that hated white screen with the spinning icon alot...and this was while just surfing the net, not running anything memory intensive. It's a 32 bit machine running 2 G's of RAM. It didn't have that many problems when it was new, so I'm wondering; is Vista that bad, or was there something wrong with the computer itself?
I've got a Windows 7 machine now. Granted, it's a 64 bit machine with 4 G's of RAM and higher bus speeds, but it's faster than that Vista machine was when it was new.
