Hi, I'm running a Pentium D with 1GB of RAM. My speed is 3.00 GHz. The problem is, it seems to be running at only a fraction of the speed it used to. I've freed up much of my hard drive, and there doesn't seem to be anything physically wrong with it. But when I try to load things up, it seems pretty slow, and it's also prone to locking up. Also, I keep getting the message, "Service program not active" whenever I load my computer up.

I've run CCleaner recently and cleaned up my computer, I've also run AVG and I seem to be free of viruses. AdAware also doesn't pick anything up. I've posted the HiJackThis logfile below. Any assistance would be much appreciated.

erm......this is just a bit of speculation but.........

thats 65 processes man (i counted)

my computer (1016mb / 2.60ghz) is running 26....

just to put it into perspective....try to manually end a good chunk of them and see if that doesnt make it run faster....if it does (and it will) turn off some of your windows startup programs...(start menu > run > msconfig > far right tab)

btw.....dont end any system processes cause it could crash your computer

also, dont disable anything in msconfig unless you know what it is.....95% of the programs that "program files" in their directories are safe to disable (google it to make sure)

Aye, I thought of disabling some of those, but I wasn't sure what was safe to kill and what wasn't. I was thinking of a reformat, but I don't really have the time what with work and studies.

are you running 2 antivirus programs?
I can see AVG and Symantec (unless the fist one is AVG antispyware).
More often than not Symantec antivirus manages to slow down a system - you could try a different antivirus solution that would not be as resources demanding.

Try disabling some processes.
