    Have you checked if there's enough space on your harddisk? Is your anti-virus updated?

Hello, I was looking at your problem and I have to say, there are alot of situtations that you can run into that will slow up and hang up a computer. Lets start with the age of the computer, have you taken to a computer shop? If not then lets proceed, when was the last time you took your computer apart and cleaned the dust out of it? The most important component in a computer is located on the mother board it is the processor, if dust is in the fan and heat sink this will cause the processor heat up and slow things down. Dust is the worst thing for a computer, dust is magnetic and when it lands on your equipment it will do all sorts of things. If your not sure what to do, then take it to a computer shop. Before you take to a shop, back up your information, even if you don't take to a shop. Next is if you do a lot of surfing on the net, clean out your internet files, this can be done by going to the control panel, then click on internet options,and delete browsing history. The next is do you have pop ups and different adds poping up? This is from certain sites you visit the server is leased to ad agences that will send things to your computer, the next tip is at the bottom right corner of your computer screen is the task manger, it shows application running in the back ground of windows, if you have alot of icons there this will slow it down. I hope your able to take all this in, and I hope this resolves some of your problems, The only thing left is to go to MY COMPUTER then mouse over your hard drive and right click it, go down to properties, when properties pop up it should show you a round circle like a graph, if there is more than 3/4 full than you are running out of disk space, this will slow it down as well. I Hope all this will help you out, and if there is any other problems please come back and let us know. Thanks

If you have already installed service pack two I would upgrade to SP3 to fix this problem. If you are trying to install SP2 try downloading the "genuine advantage update" (or what ever its called) and then the sp2 update, close all open programs before installing this update to help prevent hangs and crashes. also visit your manufacture website and download the SP2 patch if offered the patch will ensure a smooth install to sp2. good luck

I have a 54g MaxPerformance 802.11g adapter which came with my compaq presario. My wireless network worked with WEP but won't with this computer using WPA2. I think I need to update the driver. Which one...

I do not believe that updating the driver for your network card will solve the problem, although you should always install the newest one for best operation. You can go to Compaq's support page here and see if there is an update available for your model.

If WEP worked for you and WPA doesn't, then it is an encryption problem. Encryption happens on a different layer than the driver, which simply makes your Operating System work with your hardware.

If you are running Windows XP SP1 or SP2, update the operating system to XP Service Pack 3 for best WPA/WPA2 support.

XP Service Pack 1 computers do not support WPA by default and cannot support WPA2. To upgrade an XP SP1 computer to support WPA (but not WPA2), either
  • install the "Windows XP Support Patch for Wi-Fi Protected Access" (link) from Microsoft, or
  • upgrade the computer to XP SP2
XP Service Pack 2 computers by default support WPA but not WPA2. To upgrade an XP SP2 computer to also support WPA2, install the "Wireless Client Update for Windows XP SP2" (link) from Microsoft.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
