I assume, it's 512MB?
Another 512MB would help.

Download Autoruns for Windows: http://technet.micro...s/bb963902.aspx
No installation required.
Simply unzip Autoruns.zip file, and double click on autoruns.exe file to run the program.
Go File>Save, and save AutoRuns.txt file to know location.
Attach the file to your next reply.

I have a slow computer too, and hope I can take advantage of the advice set out here also. I did the autorun and will attach it if I can. I have an additional problem as well that may or may not be related: repeated, unending hanging applications, time outs, etc.--trying to click on and open my email has become a nightmare. Sometimes refreshing a few times works, sometimes not so much. Any thoughts on my attachment (if I can attach....) or any other thoughts are welcome. Thanks.

Are you sure, the file you try upload is called AutoRuns.txt?

I know exactly what happened.
Originally, when you saved the file, you saved it as AutoRuns.arn
Re-run Autoruns again. When you go File>Save and "Save" dialog box opens, make sure to rename AutoRuns.arn, which appears by deafult, to AutoRuns.txt
