Hi there Xp users!
I've had W95, 98se, Me, 2k - and since two years, XP, just because one necessary piece of hardware demands it.
I didn't understand before why people complained that "Windows" gets slower over time, because I had not seen that with W95, W2k, not even 98se and Me. Always thought it resulted from bloating applications not kept under control.
Though, my own Xp gets slow. No hardware excuse: Core 2 duo E8600 "Wolfdale" @4GHz, 4GB, P45 ich10r, X25-E - more than enough. I also have 2k on this machine and it's as snappy as on its first day, impressive; only Xp, which was quick when fresh, gets slooooow.
Is that a known behaviour by Xp? Or do I need to look for other explanations?
