Coil all the cables up as short as possible and secure them. that will reduce 
the interference as well.

Was the interference "awful" at your old place with this same computer?

The problem with PC-as-noise-generator is usually a cheap switching power 
supply, or one that's so old its filter capacitors have dried up and are no 
longer filtering.  Replacing it may cure your problem.

I just set up my old computer in the house where I'm newly residing, and the 
noise interference on AM is awful. FM is fine. 

I didn't have this problem at all with the computer I had borrowed for the past 
several months. II gather what I need is some kind of suppressor, but I have no 
idea what. When it comes to computers, I can write, send, save, upload, 
download, maneuver around the Internet, and create a website (kinda-sorta), but 
when it comes to the tech ends of things I'm pretty ignorant.
