for quite some time my computer has been having some problems. It lags a bit after being on for long periods of time, and even though i have 2 gigs of memory, it is always giving me memory error messages, especially after gaming. I cant help but think there is a problem somewhere, but i have not been able to pin it down. Any help would be appreciated. I followed the instructions on scanning, but i still have problems.

So, here are all my logs. Thanks!

It was posted May 4th, 2008.

I am having some problems with my computer being slow. It seems to be leaking memory somewhere, but i cannot figure it out. It could have an infection, i followed the steps to remove infections, but i feel like there is still something wrong. Im constantly getting "Out of virtual memory" Notifications when i have 2 gb of DDR2 RAM, which should be more than enough. I posted my Hijack This logs, among other things, and it would be great if someone could go over them, or if anybody has any idea why i keep running low on memory. Also, if you know of any programs i can turn off that are running in the background. If any other information is required i will be more than happy to post anything needed. My system specs can be located on my profile page. Thanks.

Hi, VidenTheColdOne :)

Welcome.

I have merge your topics. Lets take a deeper look:

Posted ImageDownload Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) from here or here to your Desktop. Note: You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges.
  • Close all applications and windows.
  • Double-click on dss.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.
  • When the scan is complete, two text files will open - main.txt <- this one will be maximized and extra.txt <-this one will be minimized
  • Copy (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of both, the main.txt and the extra.txt in your next reply.
If the files are too long, attach them to a reply:
  • Scroll down to [Manage Attachments]
  • Browse to the following folder:
    • C:\Deckard\System Scanner
  • Click Upload to upload these files one by one
  • Submit your reply

I have been having problems prolly since a bit after i built the computer. I had 1 gig, so i thought buying another would fix the problem, but it didn't.

sorry bout the HTML tags, don't know why that happened. If you find it easier to talk on a chat client just let me know. It's difficult to pinpoint my problems, but i know there is something wrong.
