1: Click Start > run. Type msconfig. Choose selective startup. Go to the "startup"
tab and uncheck everything which is not essential to run in the background. Leave only antimalware programs running. (if you change your mind latter you can reactivate those programs). Confirm and reboot. Upon ebooting you will see a message that should be checked.
2: Download and run ccleaner. Run the "cleaner" and "issues" options a number of times until
nothing is left to be cleaned. Use the backup option (in "issues") when prompted to do so.
3: Run a thorough scan with updated antimalware programs. Use Spybot Search and Destroy, AVG Anti-Spyware and Adaware SE. Run your Antivirus. Run full system scans (all files), preferably in safe mode. Run them one at a time,
4: Run disk defragmantation. Click start > all programs > accessories > system tools > disk
5: Download and run PageDefrag. This program defrags syatem and page files which are not
defragged by other defraggers. Set it to work upon next boot and reboot.
6: Press ctr+alt+del to enter task manager. Under Performance tab look for "physical mwmory". Olease report Total and Available.
7: Enter My Computer, right-click drive C: > properties. Please report Capacity and Free Space of your hard disk.
