First, sorry for posting this as this is a Dell PC. But, I though there are many tech savvy people on this forum and I could get helpful tips on this matter. Here is the question. My work PC (Dell X200) slows down "significantly" during the normal business hours (such as cursor/keyboard/track pad frozen up after less than one hour of use). It has Real VNC, Spring Wireless Card and Cisco VPN installed, among others. I am really puzzled with this. I am a hard worker (no lunch break nor any type of breaks for me) and I want get things done quickly, efficiently, and professionally. I receive and send countless e-mails all day long. This pesky problem with my work PC is getting to my nerves now as it is slowing me down because this Dell X200 cannot keep up with me. I suspect the company's IT dept. has some type of software on this work PC which is slowing me down during the normal business hours. Whenever I am in the office (i.e.. connected to office internal network) or outside (connected to the network via Spring and Cisco VPN combo), this Dell X200 slows down significantly. The track pad and keyboard does not respond to my input (if they do, there are significant delay between my input and actual action). Funny things are when I am at home at night with this POS Dell connected to my home network (also connected to VPN), it works smoothly. How can I prove there is something is trying to slow me down (even though I want to generate quality works 5 a.m. to 9 p.m.). This Dell is running XP Pro.
