SLOWED TO A CRAWL

I just installed a 18gig drive in a 166 pentium and loaded windows 98 at the same time and loaded aol7.0 and this machine went to a crawl opening up any application. What did I do wrong?? Only have one partition because the tech that helped install over the phone said to do so. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You installed AOL, seriously!!! :smile:

Also, how much RAM do you have? We all know that a 166 is slow compared to current procs, but it shouldn't crawl.

I thought a thought, but the thought I thought wasn't the thought I thought I had thought.

Yeah AOL does suck but she uses the it to. The machine only has 32meg's which is to low I found out for 98. Have solved the problem by purchasing a new unit 2ghz with lots of goodies, it was time after 6 years on the old one.
