Tower problems, at first I thought it was my monitor, but it is not, a friend of mine, let me try his monitor, but that did not help at all. My tower problem is this: It takes forever to get to web pages,...


You did not state the make and model of your computer so I can only recommend generic checks. When was the last time you ran disk defragmentation? A fragmented disk will slow down system operations. What operating system are you using and are you performing regular system updates? How much memory does the computer have? Windows XP SP1 ran well on 512Mb of memory, but after upgrading to SP3, you require at least 1Gb to run with any effeciency. How big is your hard drive and how much data free space is available? If your system is low on memory and your hard drive is almost full, paging (moving data from memory to hard drive and back to memory) is impacted, and will slow down the system. What speed Internet connection do you have? Dial up is much slower than broadband or DSL. Lastly, what browser are you using and do you regularily delete the temp internet files?
All of the above items will have a direct impact on your system operations. Also, make sure you are running a good antivirus program and perform regular scans. It is possible that you have a virus that is using your machine as a "zombie" and eating up your bandwidth sending spam.

I'm having problems with WindowsXP loading at start-up


I don't think you have a virus, Norton 360 is a very good antivirus program and would have caught it. Try disabling all of the Norton 360 features then load the Windows XP disc. Sometimes anti-virus programs interfere with the processs. I am assuming you have the Windows XP original disc. This should work.

Best virus/spyware protection


be careful when using symantec, it is a real resource hog! It does a good job, but is also expensive and costs annually to use. I use all the same items as GregL except i have had a lot of problems with SP3 :/ then again i normally install it on a working machine, and it messes somthing up. On a fresh install of windows XP it should do fine (SP3 that is)
