I need to get my parents computer running better. It just runs too slow and it wasn't always like this.
Pentium 4 1.6ghz ??? processor, 256mb ram, everything is standard pretty much.
It is scanned for viruses with avg, spybotsd, and ad-aware on a regular basis.
I have check off the majority of boxes in the start-up tab in msconfig
I have deleted the temp files, browser history, unwanted personal/business files.
I have recently done most of this and it has helped, but it just seams it could do better.
Plenty of room left on the hard drive I believe.
Is there something else I can do besides up the ram to the max 1gb? They don't have much money, but the computer just is always slow and goes on a few second delays or not responding and stuff like that.
Could it be viruses my scans aren't getting?
Is there free programs that do automatic tune ups?
