    Hello,
    I run XP pro (still service pack 1 after reinstallation) on a pentium 4, 3.0.
    Computer runs sometimes very slow, sometimes running 80-90-100% so I just have to wait and wait till it slows down to continue.
    I have installed already instaaled : ewido, spywareblaster, spywareguard, ie-spyad,..
    Sometimes also orther explorer bar installed : www.search123forme.com/sp2.php.
    Any suggestions on how to solve the problem.
    Thank you

    For a slow computer, basic stuff to eliminate would be
    chances of infection- if ur not sure, you might want to get ur log checked by a HTJ expert.
    If there are too many items loading at start up, disable unnecessary ones.
    Check ur HD space, if you havent already, run a disk cleanup and if the drive s fragmented, defrag it in safe mode after a chkdsk this can help improve performance.
    How much RAM do you have? Consider adding more.
    Aso if its been a long time, check if all ur fans are working fine and also blow out the dust.
