I have just recently upgraded my laptop’s RAM and hard drive. The hard drive was 80gig and ram of 512. Now it is 160 gig and 2 gig of RAM.
I have a lot of dvd’s that i own and would like to burn them to a blank dvd as i just purchased a new lg dvd recorder and you cannot burn the
original copy to the hard drive of the lg. You need to burn them to blank dvd before it can be dubbed. Hope that made sense.
Anyway in my original settings i stated before i was using 100 percent of CPU usage and now since i upgraded my ram i though it would not use
as much and it would be quicker. But it is not. Th specs of my laptop are as follows.
Intel® Pentium®M processor 1.73GHz, 2.00 GB of RAM. I am running Microsoft Windows XP Home edition Version 2002 service pack 2.
Even running a virus scan is using a lot of CPU. Is there anything i can do to increase the speed of the laptop. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Also on a side note. I just got avast for free of their website. As i am not too good with computers and all i need your help with this as well.
I downloaded Avast virus scanner. All is working fine. But i would like to look into getting another one for extra protection. WHat do you guys
use and also is a trojan virus the same as maleware/spyware? If not do i need to get another type of virus scanner?
