2/16/2013 7:22:41 PM IE quits responding frequently. I must sign off and restart the computer a lot. I'm using a Westell modem provided by Century Link. I don't know if my problems are IE or CenturyLink connections.

8/27/2010 3:09:58 PM This computer takes forever to go from program to program, move from Internet to Email etc. We were prepared to go buy a new computer when a salesman at Comp USA suggested the PC Tune-Up 2.0 as a solution.

  3.00 out of 4
4/16/2010 10:00:00 PM This is an older model with only a 20gb hard drive as you can tell. I had a newer model with a 500 GB hard drive so I am used to speed. However the 500 GB crashed for some reason. This was in storage so I started using it. I can't see very well so using a laptop is out of the question. SO, if this can be configered with the latest "stuff" for this model, I will be satisfied.
