Question about Dell Computers & Internet
Try freeing as much memory as possible to correct the problem.
turn off any programs running in the background by checking the ICONS in the lower right side of the screen near the clock area. use your mouse and right click on any pictures shown there and choose "exit" or "close".
then run disk clean. If you are using win xp, go to start, programs, accessories and then system tools. Slide over to clean desk and click on it.
It will ask you if you want to clean "C" drive - this is fine!
Check all the boxes when the window asks which files to handle. Use the arrow key and make sure you get them all. Then click ok.
When its finished running then run disk defrag.
go to start, programs, accessories system tools and then disk defrag. you want to defrag "c" drive and click the degrag button at the bottom to start it.
this may take a while to complete. when finished, reboot the pc. Then go to windows update and run a scan to update files. Install the updates, restart one more time and this should correct the problem.
