I've just installed new memory to my laptop - can any one remind me where I can find the systems specs so that I can confirm I've installed it correctly.

I run MS Vista.

Right Click - My Computer – Properties will show you the speed of the CPU and the amount of

memory installed at bottom of the display

Or in XP it is all programs.Accessories .System tools. System information.
But probably better using SIW a handy tool to have arround.

It would also be helpful to know the Vista equivalent of My Computer so that I can apply this advice from the forum:

Anyone with tips on optimising my system which runs Vista would be helpful. I've run CCleaner; WinASO registry optimiser, Advanced Systems Care.

Is there anything else that would be worth the space [ my hard drive is 80GB partitioned]

SIW only seems to work with XP - my system puts up error message stating that it is not a valid Win32 application - denying it access.

2) My Computer is also UI assume an XP designation - where can i find it / its equivalent in Vista?

Have you looked at my Click-here??

Yes - I did check out the info re putting 'Computer' [as I discover it's called in Vista] onto the taskbar - however i8t didnt bring up my syspem's specs.

However, right clicking on 'Computer' in the START menu brought up the info I wanted.

Because I was loking for an ikon in the taskbar I overlooked that it came up as Computer - and now I have a copy I'd like to delete - help please.

Do you mean, an icon on the desktop? If so, just right-click on the icon and choose Delete.
