Also disable Windows Defender if it's running.

To me the issue is not Avast but something else causing the slowdown even though disabling part of Avast helps.
How much memory is installed on the system?
Go to Start then to Run
Type in compmgmt.msc and click Enter
On left side click on Disk Management
On right side you will see you hard drive.
Male sure the window is open all the way on the top right so I can see all the info it has.
Now I need you to take a screenshot and attach it to your next reply. Do the following to take a screenshot while the above is open and showing on your desktop.
To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop
Make sure the window is open all the way so I can see everything on the top right window.
Attach it to your next reply

Now can you do the following for me please.
Push and hold the Windows key on keyboard. This is the one with the Microsft windows logo on it.
While holding Win key down click on the Pause\Break key
This should open the System properties window
On this window it will show
Microsoft Windows: type and version
Service Pack number
I need all the above info in your next reply Except for Register name and number.
This is private and we don't need to know this information

Version 2002 Service Pack 2
Intel® Pentium®D CPU 2.80GHZ
2.80 GHz 0.99 GB of RAM
I know I should have Service Pack 3 but have never been able to install even with help from here. It always would keep me from getting on Internet. I don't think that could be it as the computer was fine until about one week ago.

Download Autoruns from the link in my signature below:
1: Extract the Autoruns Zip file contents to a folder.
2: Double-click the "Autoruns.exe".
3: Click on the "Everything" tab
4: Click the Options at the top of the Window. In the new little window click the box that states Hide Microsoft Services
5: Go to File then to Export As or Save in some versions.
6: Save the file as AutoRuns.txt file instead of the default .arn to a known location like your Desktop.
7: Attach to your next reply.
8: DO NOT do anything till we have had a chance to study the log and reply with suggestions as to what to remove.
