This is a discussion on ad/spy ware within the A Brief History of Cprogramming.com forums, part of the Community Boards category; start->run->msconfig->startup...
I meant all the visual stuff too, like animated stuff.... XP style and what not, thats what uses so many resources
right click my comp --- advanced ---- performance ---- visual
for the record, i have all that stuff turned on, 7 programs running in the system tray, winamp, teamspeak, and americas army with 4 other players on the same connection: i never miss a beat in XP.
If you configure your computer right, you wont either.
What hapens if I change my page files the description is page files are a place on the hard drive that the computer uses like ram.
For the record I can't open firefox when cuteftpro is dl'ing I have shareaza open and spysweeper sweeping.
