My laptop recently has been running very slow. It takes minutes to load up internet pages and often a long time to open Microsoft Word and Excel and other programs as well. It may just be that the laptop is old and is running out of juice, I got the computer roughly 4 years ago. But I would like to see if the problem could be fixed and add some life to it. Please let me know what I need to do. Thanks.

I'd recommend taking a stroll over to the Malware forum and reading the stickied notes. If you still have problems, Go ahead and post a hijack this log for a malware expert to look over.

So I did the things on that list and it still is running as slow as before. Are there any other tips you have that could help?
