Thank's for your response
Yes, I did it, several times, but nothing.
Yes, I found some red x's. Related to not responding programs (6 x's this year). Nothing to worry for me. Happens sometimes if I shut down without closing a program at first.
But I got a whole bunch of yellow warnings "Windows saved user registry while an application or service was still using the registry during log off"
The last sentence from my post was "The problem PC is the #1 from my profile"
, you just had to click on my user name.
But, yes I have 1 Gb RAM and there are still 650MB left (FreeRamXP Pro 1.51)
So far, I try to stay up to date with my drivers and windows updates.
My problem started approx. 2 month ago, from one day to another. I think it has something to do with the web access, because last night I changed my firewall from Systemsuite 6
and blocked at first all access. Than I granted some programs access from which I know that I can trust them.
Booting the PC became know way faster, but opening programs is still very slow. It takes up to 20 seconds before I see some activity after double clicking the program.
4 more PC's:
That means, I have 4 more computers. All of them rum with win XP SP2 and have between 1 and 2 GB RAM.
All of them run the same background programs (antivir,spybot,ad-aware and so on). All of them have been stripped down to Windows and up-to-date drivers. That means, I removed all the "try my first"
programs which come pre-installed with every new PC.
You said: You should not have any kind of virus on your computer at all.
SmitRem = to find malware, will be recognized as a virus form Panda online check
Ad-aware = to remove adaware, will be recognized as adware from Spybot
Ghost-surf will be recognized as spyware from Ewido
And so on.
Even my security task manager calls my anti virus program and Adobe Acrobat Pro a high risk threat, because they have one common characteristic, they are hidden programs.
You have to see it like a fire fighter, fire is bad, but some times.......do you have to use fire to fight fire.
Some programs have the signature of a virus or malware, but they are not bad.
I'm still new to this forum, that means a lot stuff to read
, maybe I'll find something which is going to help me.
I'll let you guys know.
