Hello john!

There are many things that slow your computer down.

No Advanced SystemCare7 isn't any good and may even cause you problems.

Here's a quick fix. See how many green checks you get!

Usually, when XP starts to gradually run slower there are lots of BHOs and loaders that are loading on boot, most of which you are not aware of. In addition, when you start having problems with your network connections/internet stability there may be viruses involved running in the background.

 

So please start a here.  And follow the directions to prepare an OTL log and post it in that forum.  Someone will be by to help you with your malware issue.

Hello!

I would love to recommend all those tools to GTG members, but I was told it was against the forum rules.

I would add CCleaner to the list.

There are also some great online scanners you can use to scan for malware,if you think you may be infected!

Here are some great reasons your computer has slowed down!

I just ran this on my W7. The problem may be that XP is not being supported any longer.

You really need to start thinking seriously about up grading your computer.

PS I don't see any thing wrong with the programs you have listed. I have used most of them.

Really!  That surprises me. Well, I guess different forums have different rules, but I haven't read anything about not using those tools. Oh, well.

First time I saw that message was today.

 

Can't afford to upgrade to a new computer right now.

Ok, no problem. The programs I listed are universally used by every forum I belong to with no problems. But I am happy to comply. However, if I am prevented from using Hijack This, then I will bow out of this thread since I cannot help the OP without that tool.

Wish you the best! :)
