Specs: Windows XP, 2.4, 1 Gb ram, Radeon x13
When I try running either The Witcher, Oblivion, or Two Worlds. My computer runs them very slowly at first, and then after and hour or more it kicks in, and runs the games fairly fast, some stutters but nothing annyoing. Whats up, and how do I get it to run normal right away?

Thank You.

Hmm, thats strange. My only guess is that its loading the textures and other features at the start?

Check the options and look for something that would load things this during the loading screen and not during the game.

Ok, thank you I will give that a try. It might also be that i have alot of junk on my cpu, and I have the bare minimum specs to run the games.

Oblivion drops upto 5 gig of data on to your hard drive so try a defrag, most recent games need a large area (empty space) on the drive to load the game into during play, like an extra virtual page for the game. Another gig of ram would help, specially for xp +game

base pc spec is never a good idea as you dont see the game as its meant to be played.

try mid spec for the future.

crap cleaner may help aswell.

pc slow for a lot of reasons.:
Spyware,Temp files,Defrag,Disk cleanup,Virus,Bloated Operating system......

Here's some steps that might help:
1. Check for viruses/malware
Download, install, update and Immunize, then click 'Check for problems' then when complete select all and then 'Fix Checked'

2. Check what applications are starting up when you boot your computer (start->run->msconfig then take a look at the "startup" tab). Anything listed here will start up with your computer. Some of these things are necessary, but a lot are related to applications like QuickTime, Java, Nero etc. These things will run in the background and use up memory and CPU time.

3. download Perfect Optimizer and run to remove temp files.

4. Uninstall any applications you don't use/want.

5. Defragment your hard drive. (usually start->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->Disk Defragmenter).
