My brothers PC has started running really slow. He has cleared out rubbish, temp files, unwanted programmes and run Norton, Adaware etc to no avail. Rang Tech Support who couldn't pinpoint the problem.The technician said that there is a site where you can test memory usage. does anyone have any ideas please. The Pc is Celeron about 400 I think running Windows 98 with 256 ram. It has been ok until a few days ago. He has 2/3Gb space left.

You say he has 2-3Gb of space left, what size is the HDD ?

It could be that there is not enough space on it to run freely, I would recommend a good old clean up of any unwanted stuff, then scandisk, defrag and try again.

too right. if he has a writer drive easy thing is to back up files that dont need to stay on hard disk (mp3, jpeg etc..) uninstall games not in use, ultimately invest in more RAM or bigger hard drive!
