Thanks David and Troy.  I've already located a couple of spyware pirates.

And there's a passle full of things I don't recognize running.  I'm off to
check this stuff out.

  I would definitely look at the MSCONFIG.  You can compare what ever is
checked/listed against these sites.  They will tell you what each of those
items do.





  Hope these sites help...

    I think msconfig works on me, I would take all from startup from
running, restart and see where you are at and then isolate the culprit. :>)

      Hey All,
      I'm looking at a machine running ME, that when freshly booted, claims
to have only 8% resources free and warns that some programs won't run.

      His original complaint is that he can no longer cut or copy, and
paste.  He's running AOL 8.0 and he's right, you can't, but when I opened MS
Works, I could highlight but copy or cut was not in the right click options.
I tried CTRL C and it copied just fine, and then tried right click again and
Paste was available.  Ok, so it looks like that complaint depends on which
program you are in.

      I am currently attempting to run an online virus scan on the machine
to eliminate any question there.  He's running something called System Suite
4, but I don't find a way to update it.... yet.  Anyone know if it auto

      He's got LOTS of stuff on his machine that he's downloaded but the hdd
shows only about 10% full.  I haven't even begun to explore that yet because
the system resources caught my attention.

      I'm going to clean up the temp files and such too.

      Need LOTS of suggestions on what to look at and look for.  I know
nothing about the ME operating system.
