I just visited my son who has a Pentium 4, 1.7 mhz. processor, and 256 MB of SDRAM PC133 memory, and is running Windows 98
2nd ed. It seems very slow to me so I checked every thing that starts up when the computer starts. No problem there, only about 5 required items. Then I did the scan disc, it found errors and fixed them all. Then I tried the defrag. no luck. It would get to 2 or 3 percent and then start over. I set the screen saver to one hour, so that would not be a problem. Then I did the Control-Alt-Delete, and closed everything except Explorer. I even turned off the anti-virus. No luck. It would still only get to about 2 or 3 percent and then start over. Then I did a scan for viruses, none found. Two questions :
1) Any suggestions why I could not complete the defrag. ??
2) Would changing the SDRAM memory to DDR 2100 make any
difference ? Many thanks.
