I have a Dell XPS GEN4 comp, bought it a few years ago. Has Windows XP. Now I love my comp.. ubt there are times when it slows to a halt. It's bad. Especially when I'm playing City Of Heroes, which is very intense on my comp.
I've been doin disc defrags and cleanups on it. I have AVG Virus scanner, which I do on a regular basis. I have Spy Doctor, which I use to scan my comp on a regular basis. I have Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware scanner, which I use on a regular basis. Despite all this, I still seem to have alot of problems! It's to the point where IE will start to load, and then just die. I might go through 2 or 3 pages, and then nothing! If I play City of Heroes for more than 2 hours, it drags down my comp even more!
What kind of suggestions would you offer for me? I plan to buy a new comp in the next couple months.. but I need this one to start runnin like a champ in the meantime. Is there some kind of diagnostic I can run that someone could lok at and tell me if there's a serious problem? Is it just the fact it's a few years old?
I am greatly appreciative of any information you can offer
