I am trying to help my girlfriend with her computer
Dell 2.8ghz
windows xp
512mp ram

Her computer has been very slow.

WHen it boots, I get an error message.

SQL Server installation is either corrupt or has been tampered with. (could not oen SQLEVN70.RLL) Please uninstall then re-run to correct this problem.

From what I can tell, I don't need this program, but I can't find where to get rid of it.?? Can any one help with that.

So here is the problem and what I have tried.

Boot up takes approx. 4-6 min. before i can do anything. Also, once booted, the programs load slow. Internet explorer takes almost a min or more to open, once it is open things seem to be reasonably quick.

Here is a list of what I have done.

1. First thing I did was clean out her computer inside. It was a mess!!

2. Then I installed new virus protection (ca security suite 2009)
138 items found, 29 of which were trojans. I set to quarantine.

3. Did a defrag

4. Ran disk error check

5. unchecked some of the programs in the startup menu.

Computer is still slow, My only thought now is the memory, it is only 512mb, do you think it needs more??

Any suggestions , any help appreciated. THanks
