I'm at a loss. My Toshiba laptop, running XP has progressively been getting slower.
The other day it was taking a good 15-20 to boot. I did defraged, disk cleanup & used the anti-malware/virus tools suggested in case that was the reason.
Boot time has improved from 15-20 mins to 2-4 to boot, but still experiencing skipping/garbled audio, slow overall, still lost Admin priveleges & can't reset those (even in safe mode)?

I'm at a loss at this point...and way over my head. Your tech know how is needed greatly.

Regards, Jessica

Are you suspecting a virus infection?
If so then:

I suggest you go to the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post the reguested logs in THAT forum. If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
