10/31/2014 1:44:19 PM The computer was my neices'. She gave it to me a couple of years ago. Until I can afford a new PC , this will have to do.Also it is a laptop. Which you probably already know. With regard to the fallowing question; Is this computer running slowly? Sometimes it seems to take forever and other times it is just fine.I don't know if I am correct in saying this---> but it seems like the computer runs slower during peak use. Meaning more people are on the network! I don't know.

7/22/2017 8:10:22 PM This is an older laptop that I use for writing and for surfing the net. It is not very fast, but that is because it is an old one with Vista on it. I am not even sure when I purchased it. I am guessing 2010, but it may not be correct.

11/12/2012 9:32:45 PM Internet home page takes half hour to load! Also, same with Yahoo e-mail. I hope this fixes the problem. Spybot, Superantispyware and AVG antivirus scans found no problems, yet computer is slower than molasses! If this doesn't correct the problem, I will have to take it to Geek Squad.
