    YES. I run it off a 1.66 GHz - 2GB ram netbook with winxp and it's working without a hitch. For best results you might want to add a little RAM, the CPU is definitely fine.

    sure. i find that some of my programs slow down but I run about 20 apps at once and 50 browser windows open.

    you can always just have it running less threads at one time.

    Ram could be the problem... Try to upgrade it.. And take care about your bandwidth .. Scrapebox eats bandwidth for brakfast ... :)

    It can run but cant really do huge threading. 256MB ram is little too low since 100 or so would be used by windows xp and some other by your antivirus etc.

    Sbox is really resource-friendly, it will eat as much or as little of the bandwidth as you want to feed it. But for local resources its really light-weight.

    That said, dude, 256MB RAM with up to 64 of that being shared video? Upgrading your RAM even just to 512MB (preferrably more) will make your life better on a number of levels (above and beyond just sbox - kick it up to 512 or better 1GB and you've got a pretty nice little machine).
