Here is Rojo's latest reply via PM:
If only I could install IE9 it may be better but without Vista SE2 you cant install it.
I have formatted and reinstalled Vista at least 3 times now and I still have my old HD attached but not connected. I changed it because it got painfully slow and because I bought a new Digital camera, needed more space.
I have done memory tests, HD surface tests, registry error finding and disc cleaning too. The only problem is getting the SP's to install.
I could clone the old drive as that is fully up to date with SP2 but I fear I would just be copying whatever it was that was slowing that down to an intollerable level despite checking for TSR's, Startups etc. I even tried Hijack This but it didn't find much.
The new HD is working fine apart from not being able to get it up dAo date with updates etc.
To any other helpers viewing this thread. Rojo can read posts so please add your bit (right now I can see no answer to these issues). I have suggested the poster tries replying on another computer.
