My computer is running slower then it should given the specs I have. It's been lagging to certain things and when I try to access certain files in My Computer it will lag when I try to highlight things. I've done a complete malware scan with several programs recently to get rid of a virus and I know I've gotten rid of it but it's still somewhat slow. I know I did have something that got picked up as a trojan recently but I deleted the source of it and haven't had anything recently, I'm pretty sure it was just a program that came from a warcraft 3 map to enable you to do things in it. (Not a cheating bot, it was something through a D&Dish game for enabling soundfx or something.) I was told my PCI card is sapping my RAM by 10 or so mb so I'm not sure if that's making a difference.
My specs are:
2.4ghz intel pentium 4
512mb PC2700 DDR SDRAM memory
120gb 5400RPM Ultra DMA hard drive (65.3% unused)
I don't really have many programs running at a time when it lags. Usually I'll have Norton, Microsoft anti-virus, AOL, and 1-10 pages of Firefox running at most. I also clean out my temp files every week or two.
Thanks for any help. =D
