Dear friends, I am using windows 98 with 1.7GHZ Pentium IV processor and 256MB SDRAM. I usually save HTML pages which are of interest for web design for viewing them offline. I have accumulated some 150 pages by now. The files were stored in Drive- E. not in OS Drive C . But my computer is now slowing down and my dial up speed too has dropped to half of original( From 45kb/s to 21KB/s ) . As the files are important I thought of keeping them. I zipped them and the problem temporarily solved. But again it has resurfaced. I reinstalled the Drive C through the backup ghost but still the problem persisted. I tried "CACHEMAN" with no improvement. Now I have burned the files to CD and deleted the HTML files from Hard Drive, but still the sluggish nature of my computer continues.I once again reinstalled the Drive C through the backup ghost but still the problem persists. I did disc defragment with Disc Keeper", ran scanreg/fix but all in vain. I had done AD-AWARE and SPY BOT runs on my computer. Still no result. I also have problem with multi tasking too. The computer freezes out. I had not added any new program . i.e. I still only have all the same program I had been using when the system was problem free and swift. I also have no problem with my phone line. I checked it. Will it be an icon catch problem? Can you guide me to come up with a solution to speed up my computer and netspeed.
