Try these aswell

a) Once your system is up and running ,go to Start --> run --> msconfig dictate the startup programs


b) Download the latest patches and security updates for your OS and other applications

c) Check for unwanted starting services and disable them
http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm

d) Try doing system file checking ( start ---> run --> sfc /scannow)

e) Disable System restore

f)MS blaster worm

g) Computer slows down as Norton AntiVirus Auto-Protect CPU utilization reaches 95% or higher

h) Try using this to check which one is consuming more usage
http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/procexp.shtml

i) Run system defragmentation , Disk cleanup

j) If nothing works try restoring your machine to an earlier state

KarachiKing555,

I am not sure where you have seen about windows 2003 server drivers.. Generally doing a google search , I can find drivers for 2003 for different products.. The websites where you might have seen for 2003 drivers, may not have listed or updated their website.. windows 2003 is relatively new compared to windows 2000 and also Microsoft should have done 2003 is such a way a win2k driver be used for it. You neednot worry about that .

Thanks,
Sunray

windows 2003 is a server.. If you are not doing server -client application and only gaming and heavy desktop go for windows xp .. I would recommend windows xp pro than home ... If you cannot afford pro , just go for home..

Check to see you have more RAM ( gaming) , a good video card with high memory on it ..

When it comes to drivers on 2003 server i can't get the ethernet driver to configure right on the server... 2003 server just says it's not installed even if i have selected the right driver...

The notwork card i have is: Kingston KNE120XT

even tried to get the latest driver from kingston.com but that didn't work either...

What do i do?

regards
