you can find out the speed of your processor by following steps.

click on start button>setting > control panel > click on system icon.
The system icon will popup a screen with cursor highlight on general tab. On this general tab, you will see at the bottom of this screen, window tell you speed of processor and what type of window version user have.

If it hasn't been mentioned already, "Ad-Aware" and "Spybot: Search & Destroy" are both free programs designed to rid your computer of nasty so-called "spyware". Both are widely available on the 'net. I try to scan weekly, along with scanning with an anti virus software.

Another vote here for Mozilla Firefox. What a great and simple program. (Also free.)

Good luck with the computer situation...

That James Kim post has become so large that every time someone adds a new comment and bumps it back to the top fo the list my computer does that 30 second fatal error thing. I have to change my personal settings to allow fewer posts per page to get the thing to load the entire thing. Making me crazy...


Do you have your ETS preferences "default display mode" set to "flat" and "default view" to "collapsed"?

Try something like:

default aged threads: show all threads
default sort order: descending date
default display mode: flat
default view: collapsed
parent posts to show per page: 10
total posts to show on one page: 10

"...default display mode: flat

Now why didn't I think of that? Thanks...
