I tried installing XP SP2 and start up took about half an hour, and to open anything eles up took about 10min to open, I have uninstalled XP SP2 and running back on XP and it works fine, can any one help??
Not too hot on partitioning etc, and choosing which OS to run on, but I'm pretty sure you would have had it configured for two operating systems to be running at once. This drained all the available memory and caused a massive slowdown. Basically, you want to upgrade XP to XP SP2 (a good idea for improved function and, particularly, security). How to do that I shall leave to the xperts. I think it's not difficult, could do it myself, but not familiar enough with the options to talk someone through it.
