Inconsistent and Extreme Slowdowns in Vista

I've recently been experiencing severe problems with Vista on my Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop.

Whenever I attempt to open a folder or system page it never loads. I can leave it loading for hours but it never happens. Annoyingly this also means that I cannot open the 'connect to a network' page and thus cannot connect to the internet.

This problem does not occur when I try and open a program. They open normally and with reasonable speed. Also, I can access files through programs that are in folders I cannot otherwise open, but this is the only workaround I have.

I suspected that it may be memory related and have cleared several gb's from my hard drive but with no success. I also ran a windows diagnostics memory tool to check for memory issues but with no success. I've also ran full virus scans with no success.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

I suggest that you start a new topic in the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal area.

Before you start a new topic click on this link --> Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide, Please read before starting a new topic. This will give you a few preparations to make, as well as instruction for posting your OTListIt2 log.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
