  1. Hi ? Everyone.
    I have many problems in my computer.

    But first I have to description of my computer:

    Win XP Home Service Pack 2
    2 GB Memory -->ASUS P4P800 SE
    74.5 GB Hard Drive --->Use: 25 GB, Free: 49.5 GB
    CPU: Pentium 4, 2.53 GHz

    Question 1)

    I have WinDVD 7.0.
    When I watched DVD by WinDVD 7.0, Video and Audio are getting slower.
    I can't watch propery.
    How can I solve this problem ?

    Question 2)

    2 days ago, I was access Netzero's web mail.
    I can not access it. Therefore, I can't see my mail.
    Somehow I can see my e-mail from web, so I contact Netzero assistant help.
    I asked them to fix my problem but they said I have to delete Cookies and Caches. But It does not help.
    Moreover, After I delete Cookies and Cache, I can't access my e-mail.
    So, I post here to solve this problem.
    Also, I am using Modem for connect internet

    I am using "FireFox 1.0.6"

    Question 3)
    Recently, I want to download 20 MB to 40 MB of Program from web by using my modem connection. Every time, I waited 3 hr or 6 hr for complete to download. My problem is, when it almost completed download (90% Finish). My connection is lost. It does not support "Download Manager" like "FlashGet"

    Also, I was trying to download images that less than 1 MB.
    it stop long time and start download slow but it did not complete view( I mean it is half view of image).
    So, I used "FlashGetr" to complete view of image but it also slow.

    Help me to solve problem of connection and software.

    Question 4)

    I have a software called "Alias Maya Unlimited 6.5"
    I know that software require lots of Memory.
    I also have Adobe Photoshop CS2 with ImageReady CS 2.
    They also require lots of Memory.

    I want to run my computer smooth.

    Should I buy another Hard Drive ?
    I have lots of image and software.

    As I said earlier, my hard drive 74.5 GB and use 25 GB.
    If I have 2 Hard Drive, I can divide 74.5 GB as Software Drive (include Windows XP Home), and other is images and some important files.

    If I do that, I can see computer run smooth ?

    Also, there are many different Intel Pentium 4 processor.
    Which one I have to buy.
    Extrme ? or D ? or Hyperthrading ?

    I want my PC to be Extreme Internet, and Workstation type.

    Please Help me to solve every problems.

    It looks like you have a lot of Ram. That's good. I would get a high speed online connection(using cable modem). If you want to download things efficiently and fast, 56k is no way to go. I always had problems downloading when I had 56k. Same thing, it would cancel around like 90 percent after downloading for a coulple of hours.

    I don't think you have to get a new hard drive. You still have like 50 gigs left.

    I'm sure getting high speed online will solve your email problems. It couldn't hurt right. As far as your pc, it looks like you have a good processor, lots of ram, and room on your hd so that's probably not the problem.

    Also try to do a disk defrag, disk cleanup, clear history, clear cookies and run your virus protection if you have one. Also run an adware detector/remover program. You can get free versions of these if you don't have them.

    As far as your windvd7, what videos are you having troubles with exactly. I use that program too to watch dvd's and mine works fine.

    Well good luck!

    By the way:

    "Extreme internet Workstation" and "56k modem connection" don't match

    Your main problem is a slow internet connection.
    Get a faster one, like cable, ADSL, satellite, etc.

    Replace Flashget with Stardownloader V1.44 from www.stardownloader.com
    A second harddisk WOULD speed up some programs, but not all.
