My wife's Acer netbook is really slow... any suggestions?


Sometimes, it takes literally ages for an IE window to open or to switch between windows. It's running Windows 7 Starter and I've checked it for viruses....

    I'll check how much RAM I have when I get home. I may not upgrade though - I'd probably pick her up an iPad for what she uses it for instead.

    Eeek! Hope that is not the case. This weekend I will try all the suggestions and we shall see. Thanks for the answer though.

    Doubt it is a hard ware issue. I wrote a hub on the difference between mac and pc. Most mac users don't like it though. How's that for a hub plug! Have a good day

    I'm not willing to give up on it yet - it's well under 2 years old! I will persevere... Doing great thanks - just been really busy so Hubpages has taken a back seat... trust you are well.

    I have used Chrome myself for years and have found it good. (prior to getting a Mac) but I am expecting a learning curve with any changes for my wife, so I'll see what she wants to do. Thanks.
