I have an ancient eMachines T-5026. (Intel P-4 519 3.06Ghz single core Prescott) I'm running XP-SP2, fully updated with the exception of SP-3. (If I install SP=3, I lose the ability to do a repair install. My AV product is AVG Free. This thing's my go to erotica finder. (Trust me, I don't log in to my bank with it). Anyway, it seems terribly slow at loading pages, with the CPU at, or pushing, 100% usage. I can't load more than one page at a time, or I get a "problem server reset before page loaded", type error. Once the other page(s) have loaded, a simple reload page command, establishes the connection. Firkefox, (@ ver. 29.01), is the browser of choice, with "NoScript" installed. I just did a repair install of the OS, which is the only way I could get it to reload the internet driver, (Intel 100/ Pro). That doesn't seem to have helped. My question is, I want anybody's best opinion as to whether this level of performance is what I should expect as typical with this rig, or is it just plain worn out, and I should retire it with full military honors.
