i went out of there and checked how  much space was left on my c drive and it was at 285MB it's a 3.GB drive ...
You're gonna have problems until you upgrade to a larger hard drive.  Knowing that you only have 285MB of free space, I'd say you will not be able to install the Service Packs for Windows XP.  I don't know how your computer is even functioning with only a 3GB HD.  In fact, I have to suspect you may be incorrect in the overall size of the hard drive.   If you open My Computer, what drives do you see listed there, and what does it show for total size?

        This indicates the computer is 10 years old.  Even adding RAM & a larger hard drive, expect it to run slowly.  The WinXP service packs & latest antivirus's & anti-spywares need more power than your computer provides.  I've retired my Pentium III's & II's to non-internet use.

          By the questions soybean and myself have asked previously and now with Computer Commando's pronouncement your issue takes on a whole new light. What is being said is you are using a very old computer. The consequences of that are that it is not practical to upgrade the hardware that were it Not so old would allow you to upgrade your XP operating system hardware (service packs 1-3 etc) and get your computer performing better. Your basic problem at the moment is that your harddrive capacity as reflected in your 2 drives is NOT really adequate to run your operating system and have enough remaining to allow you to do very much. I would still be interested in your reply to my question (which was going to allow me to do some research on what you have on your computer and what upgrades may be possible)--so once again what is the make and model of your computer? If your circumstances permit this may be an appropriate time for you to consider a computer replacement.truenorth

          If a computer replacement is feasible at this time, I suggest this: Compaq - Presario Desktop / AMD Athlon™ II Processor / 2GB Memory / 500GB Hard Drive.  $320 retail price.  This is the computer only.  You'd need to use your current mouse, keyboard, and monitor, or replace them too.  I believe this computer has no PS/2 connetors, which I'd guess is what your current mouse and keyboard use.  If true, then you would need to get a USB mouse and keyboard.

          That's a good suggestion.  BTW, it has PS2 connectors for keyboard & mouse.  Pic shows a 56k modem, specs don't mention it.


          Here's one for $280

          256Mg of RAM may be factoring into this...as well as limited HDD space.
          Your asking a machine to do what it wasn't built for...

            Since Netscape is now a subsidiary of AOL, their browser is the only one that will function with AOL.

            Nothing here about having to use Netscape: What are the minimum system requirements for Classic AOL Mail?  And besides, I can't imagine Netscape browser being required to use AOL mail.  AOL stopped supporting the Netscape browser years ago.

              Did you read reply #21 and 22?  We gave you two good suggestions and posted links to them on Best Buy's website. If I were buying one of them, I'd probably pick the one I posted because I believe it has a little better processor.  But, I think either of them will work fine for you.
