Vista machine acting slow
This newly installed Vista machine is acting slow. Sometimes there is
hesitaion when typing. When opening a program it takes a while.The internet
connection gets lost and comes back( I am looking into the wireless
settings).
What I want to learn is what tasks are running and what services are
running? Are any of these tasks and services not needed to be on when
computer boots.
I just bought the MS Vista Admin Pocket Consultant by Stanek. I am
experienced with XP

And yes, XP SP2 currently is faster than Vista.
