Operating System Version:Windows ME

Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:



My computer was purchased new in 2000.  I am using Windows ME but lately things seem to not work as well.  I plan to take the computer in for a cleaning and checkup.  Someone suggested I have Windows XP installed (at a cost, of course)...someone else said...I should order a new computer cause mine is getting old!

How long should a computer last?  Is Windows XP the way to go?  I am not too smart about such things and would appreciate your comments.

Is Windows XP much better than Windows ME?  I was told that Microsoft doesn't support Windows ME any longer..whatever that means.

Thanks.

Hi,

Windows ME had so many issues that a lot of people went to WinXP. If you're not planning to spend the money on a new system, I would not bother buying WinXP for your old system. When you're ready to buy a new system, it will come with whatever version of Windows is then available.

If you've been running your system with WinME for 3-4 years, then I'm sure a little longer will not kill you, right?

The reason I suggest this is that you're old system may not have the minimum requirements to run WinXP or would be slow running it and you may get a copy of WinXP (or whatever version is out) cheaper with the purchase of a new system.

Your call!
