Re: Can Jaws slow down your computer?

I figured out the the internet is what is slowing down my entire computer. When 
I unplug the modem everything is toatlly faster. I don't know what to say to my 
internet provider? Has anyone had problems with Road Runner?

  Jeanette,
  AFter I responded I noticed that you did have 512 meg RAM.
  Press cntrl+alt+delete.

  This will take you to the task manager. To exit the task manager just use the 
alt+F4.
  You need to go to the "processes" part of the task manager. This will show 
you every little thing which is running and how many CPU cycles it is gobbling 
up.

    Jeanette,
    Man, JAWS in and of itself should have no effect on that sort of processor.
    I did not see how much memory you have if you said. I would presume it is 
at least 512 megs, preferably a gig.
    It is Eloquence which might be a problem on a slower CPPU but anything 
above about 1.8 GHz should be able to handle that load.
    I concur that Norton is, most likely, a major contributor to your woes.
    Go to Microsoft Task Manager, then to the processes page and see who is 
gobbling up the cycles.
    The very last entry is "system Idle" and it should be above 90%.
    If it is not then just read down each entry and I think you will find the 
culprit.
    I would recommend AVG as it seems to work well for me with XP Home, svc pk 
II.

      What else could cause computers to be slow? I have alot of memory and ram 
so 
      It should not be slow but it is.

         Well, it's no secret JFW can at times be resource intensive. But,
         somehow, I doubt the performance hit you take running it will be very
         much different from if you didn't have it running. Particularly on
         today's computers. I've run several processes I know full well are
         more resource intensive than JFW, and this computer's nothing
         special, but it was still fairly fast all things considered.
