I have been having some problems with the speed of my computer lately. The computer slows dramatically on Internet Explorer when either typing sentences quickly (when I stop typing, the words appear after a few seconds) or scrolling up and down big pages that have a lot of text (such as Word Association in this forum). The scrolling is "delayed" a few seconds after I move the scroll wheel on the mouse. PC Details:
Pentium II (I'm not sure, but I'll guess 500MHz, I know it sucks)
19 gig HD (12.5GB used)
I've never experienced this problem before a few weeks ago and I haven't made any drastic changes to the system. Any ideas? Has this happened to anyone? Is it a memory problem? Thanks in advance!
