My laptop is an dell inspirion 1100 and i want to know how i can make it go faster as the laptop takes over 10 minates to load an application. I have installed an anti-virus on it and that did speed it up somwwhat , only becaues it found two virsues. Even with the speed up time, it still takes a long time to load and i checked the hardrive and that is not that full at all, so taking that long really ponders me. It it possible to install larger memory on it to speed it up or will that not make a change? PLEASE HELP, i can't stand the slowness anymore!!!!! and thank you for your assitance.
