i'm new here and would like some info. i see others posting Hijack results. my computer, over the last week, has really slowed down and i'd like the opportunity to do this also. is Hijack a freeware i can download and submit here? can anyone walk me through it?

ALSO.....going out this weekend to Best Buy (shudder)! to buy more RAM. i have one slot free. currently only have a 64MB and a 16 MB (total of 80 MB) and AOL won't run properly on that.

can anyone tell me how much RAM i can put in this machine? does it make sense to pay the bucks to load it up with hundreds of MB of ram? will it run that much? or am i better off just buying another 64MB?

also.....you can tell i'm a novice at this......my husband pulled out the 64mb one last night and i digital-photo'd it. i'd LIKE to buy on ebay but can't figure out if i'm getting the "right one". i can't even figure out how many PINS it is.

any and all info on upgrading the RAM on this unit will be appreciated. i've attached the pix of the current RAM in the machine.

thanks!

Hello llmoyer,

HijackThis:

Yes, its free, download here http://radiosplace.com/ latest version 1.98

Download it to it's own folder - unzip (dowble click on zipped folder) - click on the execute - click scan button - click save log and save to the folder you just created *DO NOT FIX ANYTHING* - copy resultant .txt file and paste into your next post.

* There are designated people here that will analyze and advise on any fixes


Memory:

Go here http://www.crucial.c...2655&PID=316093

Crucial sells memory - enter your system specifications. Armed with memory spec and price, you can then shop around.

Regards - Charles

ok, i've figured out the hijacker and have posted to the malware section, but i'm still wondering about ADDING RAM.

am i in the wrong place to ask that question? can anyone suggest other message boards?

thanks.

Why isn't this helping? The website's RAM lookup will tell you what you need based on your system. The info you're asking for will be provided by that lookup. What else are you looking for? You certainly need RAM - but you knew that already.

Been known to do that myself :D

For future multiple subject replies, I'll make the distinction more apparent.
