Hello everyone, :whistling: I have been search all over the internet for answers on what i can do to get my computer moving much quicker then it is i have tried many things but it still seems to run slow, i went from dial up to dsl I put in 256 mb or ram to bring my computer the the max it can hold with is 368 and i put in a new hhd bringing my computer from 17gb to 80 gbs because it kept filling up, what can i put in my computer to be able to install more ram since i think that may be the problem or is there something else i can try to get it moving i would appreciate any comment anybody may have other then get a new computer i cant afford one :blink:

Most likely your system is clogged with s**t. I always recommend a good reformat AT MOST every year. I do it every 3-6 months (have file server for back up though).

Members should refrain from offering any advice on malware other than directions to the malware forum.

Visit the malware forum first its in my sig if you cant find it, if you get a clean bill of health come back.
