Help!
If I post my "Processes" from Windows Task Managers, might someone be able to help me figure out why my PC is running so slow?
Thanks, lawyerdude

It doesn't tell me much :tazz: , but maybe the following will:

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log as a new topic in the Hijack This forum. It will get a better response there from the people most qualified to analyze logs.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide. Also see this post.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

Run A Full System Scan For Spyware Using Lavasoft Ad-Aware.
Other Than That, It Looks Like You Have A Lot Of Applications Running.
You Could Use MS Config To Disable Most Of Them.

Did The Performance Decrease Just Occur Since You Install SP2?
If It Did, Try This:

1. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to start Task Manager.
2. Click File, and then click New Task (Run...).
3. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
4. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\RpcSs

5. On the right side of the viewing pane, right-click ObjectName, click Modify, type LocalSystem in the Value data box, and then click OK.

6. Restart your computer.

Hope This Information Helps You.
