Computer runs too slowly and ''grinds''
\015 My computer is 2-1/2 years old and it runs very slowly. It's very difficult to do any kind of work on the internet, as often the computer ''grinds'' for a long time between web pages. It also becomres slower as any given day wears on. When I restart it, the computer runs a little faster, but then gradually starts running more slowly.\015
Depending on the situation, It could be you need more ram. If your running Windows Vista, 2-3 years old computers are probably coming with about 512mb-2 gb's or ram. In which case grab at least 3 gb's or ram and you'll be ok. If it's an xp system. grab at least 1gb or ram. Internet delay though could possibly be due to your ISP or perhaps a virus/spyware. There are certain viruses and spyware that slow down internet connection while leaving your pc running fast.
