xp runs slow
just got myself a brand new computer and i have a dual boot of windows Xp
and windows 98.
the processor is a athlon semprom 3000+
using win 98 the computer runs like lighting very very fast, loading pages
and i cant ask for anything better.
On the other hand using windows xp take san eternity to load pages programs
etc. Even connecting to microsft updates take forever on xp.
although using windows update on 98 takes less than a few minutes
The reason im asking is there anything wrong with XP is that, i used it on
my old computer which only had a processor of 550mhz, and i was used to the
system, and i did think the new processor would make a hell of a difference
but is has not.
Just to add, sometimes when xp loads its fast for a couple of minutes then
its back to very slow
