I am using a Dell Dimension 2400 and the thing is slower than mallases. I have defraged the Hard disk and that didn't help I have ran chkdsk /r and that didnt help. It only has 124 MG of RAM I'm not sure if that might be the reason it is so slow. I would greatly appreicate any advice someone could give me thanks again.

If it is Windows XP, then 124 MB of RAM is definately not enough. Tune-Up recommends at least 512 MB, but personally I use 384 MB.

It is possible that an infection is making it slower too. If you want to make sure you're not infected you could follow all the directions found here.

Computerwiz12890,

Thanks for the quick response. I actually already ordered 512 MB of RAM so I'm just waiting for it to arrive. I will however do the steps you told me to. Once I do the hijack log do you want me to add the attachment to this thread so you can take a look at it for me and maybe tell me what doesn't need to be? Thanks again.

Since I am only in training, I am not allowed to assist with malware problems. So you would have to start a topic in the Malware forum.
