I generally help various family and friends with their PC issues . Virus's , adware, internet , installations, etc. My sister though has me stumped . Got a brand new HP Pavillion 1000 ay and I was bringing over Norton Antivirus to load onto her machine. Noticed immediately that there was a delay just displaying Start-Control Panel-Add Remove programs. Installed Norton, ran a full virus scan, did a defrag as well but still very sluggish. No adware that I can tell is running by eyeballing Task Manager.
Computer has 256mb mem , 2.8 Celeron, no video card ( I believe its what's on the intel board) , 40 gig drive. Nothing special . Ran a windows benchmark utility Petst.exe , and all looked above par .
Thoughts how to attack this ? Appreciate your help !
