Hi,
My computer is running exteremely slowly and I was wondering if there's a way to make it run faster. I suspect it's a registry key problem since I've tried freeing up disk space, defragmenting, and running MBAM for malware/spyware. I have a Dell Dimensions 8200 desktop with Pentium 4 CPU, 1.69GHz, 256MB RAM. I've attached a hijackthis log. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post an OTListIt log in THAT forum.

after you have been cleared by the malware pros...you only have 256MB RAM...thats part of your problem...512 should be considered the minimum and 1GB the sweet spot...
ram is dirt cheap right now....
