A reinstall of what?
You lost me on everything else. Sounds like things I'll have to pay someone else to do.
So far the extra memory is working good though. I can work with mutliple tabs at one tme and everything is MUCH faster.
I think Maxatoria is referring to Windows itself. Sometimes reinstalling windows helps, but I'd consider that a kind of last resort as it tends to
take awhile and will delete everything not already apart of Windows. Meaning you're downloaded programs and files will go bye bye, leaving only
Windows (unless your files are on a separate partition, but now I'm getting complicated). you can save some of your stuff to CD/DVD(s) or a jump
drive, but it'll have to reinstall any programs. Otherwise you face a whole mess of re-downloading on top of reinstalling anything additional.
Not to take away from Max's suggestion, though, because if your computer can't be speed up otherwise a reinstall of windows usually fixes that up
nicely. That is if the problem isn't a hardware issue (Which it sounds like it's not). It will also fix any problems you have (and may not know
about) that is software based. Like those registry errors I mentioned as well as viruses, spyware, bad drivers.. ext.ext.
In any case I'm rambling, But you get my point!
