Hi De,

It's no secret but I've been using Windows XP since it 1st became available a 
couple of years ago and now I would not dare go back to another os.   I love 
it.   Bob, the River Man, will tell you to keep up with  the Administrative 
Logs off of the Start - Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Ad logs and 
review it each time you have an error.;  Or use "Help" to find out more.  Even 
now, with a slow start, you can review the logs to see what's loading and if 
there are any conflicts.   Btw, Windows xp is not as fast of the older os's.   
Also, in all fairness, shut down the excessive programs that are loading on 
reboot.   Use Start - Run - Msconfig to get to your Startup folder and just 
uncheck all.      Then start rebooting and add programs one and a time until 
you have what your want.

  Hey group 
    I do not run XP, however I have a chance to learn it now. 
    I am tweaking a new computer with a clean install of XP home and was 
looking for any tweaking suggestions. Upon the first boot up I was very 
disappointed, it took forever to boot and then it asked a ton of questions, 
didn't mind the questions tho. The next time I booted it, it was much faster, 
however, I put the new machine up against an old machine with win98 in it and 
the new machine still should be faster. (Both machines arrived at the log on 
screen at just about the same time) 
    Ok here are the stats of the new machine 
        1.2 AMD processor with 128mg ram, 40gig HD,  generic CD player and 
        on board, video, sound and network 
  Did a google search and came up with alot of pages for XP, I have learned 
alot from those pages. What are some of the tips, tricks, and tweaks, that you 
folks have used to make your machine scream right along? 
  Appreciate the input
