my mothers laptop is slow, it takes about 45 minutes to start and 3 minuets to open a standard text document. its only 3 years old with 512mb ram, 12mb video card, fire fox 3, 100gb hd, windows xp home with sp3 and is fully updated, about 466 mb pf being used normally, about 69 processes regularly being used, the grid on the CPU usage averagely is at 10%, 4 users: me, mom, dad, and ted, takes 30 seconds to load a web page, windows live one care suite, malware bytes found only adware.minibug and cureit found warnings of Trojan.backdoor in the AOL folder, about 69 things in start up in msconfig, yahoo messenger, and it had mcafee 2006 and Norton 2005 at different times but there no longer on.
i also fixed it from a constant bsod by running chkdsk in a dos-like prompt in the windows disk, im using hijackthis for a quick way to sow the processes, BUT JUST THE PROCESSES, tell me if you would like to see the rest of the log.
oh yea, one last thing, i used atf_cleaner and it cleaned out about 3.5 gigs oh the hd.
tell me if you need anything else
tyler kicks your face
