Yeah it blows pretty bad. I want to do a complete reinstall of the OS and everything to clean off all the extra crap Compaq loaded on from the factory but it is my mom'* computer and she would freak.

Bad enough I have to put up with AOL since she wo'nt use anything else but the computer is so bogged down with useless background programs. The computer idles at about 40% system resources free
