Very Slow to respond

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Charlie Evans, Feb 26, 2005.

  1. Have an e-machine running XP Home. Recently had WildTangent and others come
    to visit. Did AdAware, CW Shredder, and others and thing it is now cleaned.
    Ran defrag and clean disk (Old Scandisk) but now whenever I make any
    selection, My Documents, Control Panel, Etc,, takes 30-45 seconds to
    display. Got 256 K memory and before infection it was much faster.
    Have AVG and it is up to date. Any suggestions

    Thanks very much, many have helped me here in the past...

    If you look at running processes (Ctrl + Alt + Del) is there something
    using up the CPUs horsepower? If nothing shows up there you may need to
    look a little closer with something like Taskinfo at
    http://www.iarsn.com/download.html

    HijackThis comes in pretty handy for finding things running hidden in
    the background too. If you don't know what to eliminate with it don't
    wing it, post your HJT log either in this group or one of the support
    forums like

    No wnder it is slow with 256k RAM!!!

    But seriously, have you tried running Mircosofts AntiSpyware program,
    before Microsoft took over this program, I used to use it and it was
    quite successful, it should still be as Microsoft hasn't really changed it.
