    AVG should handle that

    But you really should make Xp 256 or better yet 512

    Xp shouldn't even run with less than 256mb RAM! Get some more, its cheap.

    Yes it can (without Antivirus !!)

    Actually I have ran Xp with AVG on 128Meg it does work.

    I don't think it's a gaming machine though :haha:

    V Surprised, I figured the minimum spec meant anything less wouldn't work! asunnyday really should upgrade his RAM though, especially if he's adding more software into the mix.

    Oh, my bad. I thought the minimum was 256mb.

    I may have 4gig RAM but unfortunately my mobo is crap, I still have AGP graphics and I'm running Vista which makes it even worse!
