Are you saying you removed programs you need?
How is the system running now?
I'm going to give you a few steps to take to clean up alittle and see if that will help with what you have done so far.


Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.
Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
If you use Firefox browserClick Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
If you use Opera browserClick Opera at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.


If this does not work then:

Go to:
Start and then My Computer
Right Click On "C" drive and then click on Properties
Click on Tools tab at the top
In the Error Checking field click Check Now



Download Auslogics Defrag from the link in my signature below. Auslogics Defrag in my opinion is better because:

It does a more comprehensive job at Defragging
It will actually show you what it is doing
At the end of working it will show you how much speed you picked up
You can view a online log of the files that Auslogics defragged


After running all this please elt me know how your system is running.

I ran the links provided....
and the machine seems to working better then it was for what limited browsing I have done.
I have some errands I have to run and then will jump back on and check it out some more.
the Auslogics Defrag said the machine isn't fully optimized and a link for the boost features.
Thank you so much for your time and patience you have been such a help

I hope you have a great weekend
