Hi,

Please try installing more memory!!!Windows 2000 server alone uses a good 2MB of ram for the operating system I would also suggest getting a bigger hard drive too You also might try moving some unnecessary files onto diskettes Also try running disk defrager.Please try clearing out the Temp Directory too I can almost promise you if you add more memory and a bigger hard drive your computer will run a lot faster!!!
