When I turn on my windows xp computer, the screen takes forever the load, it's like a curtain coming down from the top of the monitor. This happens to my desktop and webpages I load, such as youtube, google etc. The only webpages that work correctly is facebook and twitter. And when I try to open microsoft security essentials, it wont open. I'm thinking of upgrading to windows 8 but I would like to sort this problem out first. It's a 32-bit OS, I am a PC gamer, so i have a lot of steam games installed that are more than 3,000MB each. I have uninstalled the one's that I don't use.
Amd Phenom II x4 955
4.00GB ram (recognizes 3.00GB because of 32-bit os)
Radeon 6670 2GB
500GB HDD (Western Digital Caviar Blue)
I would suggest definitely upgrading to Windows 7. I would stay away from Windows 8 for now as there are still alot of bugs to fix.
Try 64bit Windows 7 NOT 32bit
Thanks, my dad bought me windows 8 so i upgraded to that, however it did take a while for me to install 64-bit, since i had to boot off of the upgarde disk, i'm currently really liking windows 8 aswell, but thanks for the advice
