Alrighty then, before I listing probs here is some stats:
OS: Windows 98 SE
Main Hardrive: 4.05/7.85G used
Pentium(r) II processor
128.0 MG of RAM
yes, I know those are crappy low numbers -_-
Anyways, the PC has a big problem with becoming low on virtual memory. The multitasking is crap, and atempting it only piles uses of the virtual memory even quicker. Eventually I have to close all windows and restart the program, regardless of what I was working on. Even if it's only one program. For example, I have to open and close my internet browser (mozilla firefox) every 20-50 pages for it to run. When I've typed for a good deal of time on microsoft word it will start to lag, horribly.
Does anyone know any way to streamline this PC other than:
Scan Disk and Defrag
Deleting Unused and Uneeded Programs
Buying more memory
If you know any free programs that could help feel free to suggest those as well. I know my way around BIOS and CMOS as well, so don't hesitate to mention if you think you know something I can change in there that will help.
