Simpler Navigation for Servers and Operating Systems
Completed: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We combined many of the older boards, so you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. Check the consolidated boards here as many sub-forums are now single boards.

Re: system resources

You don't say what OS you are running, so it's difficult to know where to
start. The most obvious place is in your startup folder. Anything that's
running on startup is eating up resources. Make sure you get rid of anything
you don't really need running everytime you boo tup (like ICQ, AIM, etc.)

If you are running Windows 98, go to your START menu and select "run", then
type "msconfig" and press OK. This will run the hidden Windows configuration
editor, which will tell you about other things running at startup that may not
be in your startup directory. As always though, be careful. If you don't know
what something is, you may not want to change it.

If you have less than 64 Megs of RAM, you may want to consider getting up to at
least that much.
