Create a new restore point first.

Go to Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System

Select Turn off automatic updating; I want to update my computer manually.

okay so i decided to defrag the disk this morning just to see if it would help its been a little while since i have done it. i analyzed the disk with auslogics disk defrag and it says that there are 300+ regisytry errors and 900+ junk files. i downloaded their auslogics boost speed but i would have to purchase the full program to fix everything. is their a free verson of a program that will do the same thing or should i bite the bullet and purchase theirs. ive attached screen shots of both programs scan results. also IE8 seems to be running smoother with the last update you provided which makes work much easier thank you

The Auslogic defrag program is very good and I for one recommend it`s use but steer clear of the so called system performance boosting software, read the blog of respected author miekiemoe here and you will see why not only me but no one else at GTG will suggest the use of such software.

 

Next suggestion is to tidy up the data on your HDD, please follow the directions provided below starting with Autoruns http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902

 

1: Extract the Autoruns Zip file contents to a folder.

2: Double-click the "Autoruns.exe".

3: Click on the Hide Microsoft and Windows Entries tab

4: Go to File then to Export As or Save in some versions.

5: Save AutoRuns.txt file to known location like your Desktop.

6: Attach to your next reply.

Autoruns Tutorial

 

2nd: Download and run TFC from http://www.geekstogo...er-by-oldtimer/ the computer should automatically re-boot on completion but if not do it manually.

 

3rd: Would have been to defrag the HDD but it has already been done  :thumbsup:

 

To speed up your boot times find any unnecessary programs linked to start up "how to" below;

 

START -> RUN

type MSCONFIG in the RUN box

then click OK

 

Click on the start-up TAB

 

Look at each line that has a check in the box, these are start-up items, with the exception of Windows programs and your AV software uncheck the ones you do not want to run at start-up.

 

You are welcome btw  :)

Yes provide an expanded screenshot of MSCONFIG please.

 

Create a new restore point.

 

Autoruns is not too bad but there are a few things that should be disabled/

X "AVG_UI" "" "" "File not found: C:\Program Files\AVG\AVG2013\avgui.exe" Delete this.

 

Disable the following

All Adobe entries

All Apple/bonjour/ipod/Itunes entries

All Sun/Java entries

All Mozilla entries

 

There are entries that I am not familiar with, do you know what they are.

+ "ISUSPM" "FLEXnet Connect Software Manager" "Flexera Software, Inc." "c:\documents and settings\all users\application data\flexnet\connect\11\isuspm.exe" "5/21/2010 2:39 PM"

+ "TM_BHO Class" "TabMan Control Browser Helper Object" "Bosch Automotive Service Solutions" "c:\program files\ford motor company\ids\runtime\tmc

+ "REY PSCVersionService" "REY PSCVersion Service" "The Reynolds and Reynolds Company" "c:\rey\bin\pscversionservice.exe" "3/5/2014

Update acknowledged and nothing untowards on the list  :thumbsup:

 

Please feel free to uninstall any testing software that we have used.

 

I note the uTorrent icon on your desktop, are you aware of the risk of malware infection when downloading torrents, this has always been a problem but with support for XP now ended computers running XP are more likely to become infected as they will be targeted by the bad guys, this is such a concern that it is suggested that computers that are running XP should not be connected to the internet.
