Slow old machine

March 16, 2011

After cleaning up the operating system on this poor old machine I fired up Firefox as usual, and, as you recently saw, everything slowed to a crawl. I tried using Internet Explorer but it wasn’t any faster. I feel as if I have been mired in molasses for weeks.

So I installed Google Chrome. So far so good—no crashing or gnashing of teeth or pounding the desk—and I have about a b’zillion tabs running. Hehe. It feels like home.

It’s a temporary fix that won’t solve the problem of the hard drive that is still grinding away, but good for the moment.
