My computer is acting up and I don't know if it is a hardware problem or merely an application failure, or possibly some degradation of Windows XP itself. I first noticed it a short time ago after one of the recent Windows XP security updates.
It might even be some sort of virus or somesuch.
Specifically . . .
When I try to save a file (using "Save As") the computer briefly 'freezes' and then I can hear a slow "tick...tik...tick... from the hard drive and then eventually it will 'SAVE' the file.
Always something . . .
Still busily packing stuff for the upcoming move.
Better cut this short and get back to it . . .
