Worked for me, and yes, it did take hours. Before upgrading, check whether your firm is part of the Select program. Another cause of the problem is incompatible Logical Block Addressing (LBA).

Troubleshooting Video ProblemsIf your screen stays black or is skewed after a restart, either the video device is not resetting correctly during the restart or the video is sharing an IRQ. Then you run sysdiff after you install Esketch. I just installed Antivirus 2009 and it says that Windows Optimizer 2009 is spyware!!! Windows NT traps BIOS INT 13 calls while it is running, but cannot protect itself when the computer is started from an MS-DOS floppy disk or is dual-booted by using MS-DOS.

Enthusiasts preferred Borland's Turbo products while pros who wanted performance opted for Watcom's C compiler, the fastest out there. You will not be able to speed up the software,it could be a network factor as to how many users are accessing the applications at the same time. 0Votes Share Flag Unless it is a virus scanner or your firewall there is no reason for this behavior! https://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windowsnt/4/server/reskit/en-us/resguide/troubles.mspx Flag Permalink This was helpful (0) Collapse - Re:Re:XP running painfully slow by FM-USA / March 28, 2004 10:23 PM PST In reply to: Re:XP running painfully slow I have the
