the computer opens (files, internet or e mail) ok, but scrolling or paging is extremely slow.
using mouse thumb wheel is slower than scrollbar, but both are slow.
all AV and spyware is up-to-date and show no problems:
(AV and spy-ware include: McAfee VS 7.0, McAfee Stinger, Spy-Bot, Ad-Aware, TuneUp 2004)
when booting system I get an error message that relates to my autoexec file:
message is: $ Bad Command
if I open autoexec.bat, the onlything in the file is one character: " $ ", hence the error message.
