Default My computer sucks...

It pauses all the time and if I don't wait for mycomputer to catch up it slows down my typing. It will freeze and if I keep typingiwillstopputtingspacesan d then suddenly addeverytime i pushed the space bar, it will add all of those spaces at the end of the words once it catches up. It sometimes will skip capital letters too. This paragraph has doneexactlywhatihavebeendescribingandthi s is whatitlooksl ike if I don't wait for the lag to end. F*cking shit.

Edit: I see that ISH automatically gets rid of the ridiculous spaces, so you'll just have to imagine what those long strings of words combined look like with 5+ spaces behind them.

Virus? Are too many programs running on your computer at the same time?

The computer is only a little more than a month old and has up to date virus protection. It is a cheap as shit computer though, because it is all I could afford. It does this whether I have 1 program open or multiple. Right now, I am running just Firefox and I have 2 tabs: ISH NBA Forum and ISH Off Court. Takes too much patience to be typing on this piece of a crap.

Windows sucks. Switch to Linux. Use Puppy or Slax. They run on very little ram. The entire operating system of puppy is only 150-180 mb and it's free:




Slax:




Use Slax if you like the look and feel of windows. If you have a lot of Window's programs you want to keep using, download wine version 1.4 and it'll automatically convert those over to Linux. Works wonders.

Yup. Anything higher than XP needs at least 1 gig of ram just to run the OS.

Also, download CCleaner and use it like once a month or so.
