Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad R50e Notebook ?

Slow performance I have tried all I know to speed up this r50 thinkpad to little effect. The usual system tools and decluttering are current but windows open slowly, if at all. Frequent stalls, and lock ups. I am running Norton 360 and all my updates to XP are installed. I am trying to minimize things running in the background but am unsure how to do this and proceeding with caution. I only want to run Internet Explorer and the MS Office pak at this station so am willing to reformat and start ov
