    I have an IBM Thinkpad T43 (XP Professional version 2002, SP2, pentium 2.00GHz, 798 MHz, 1.00 GB RAM) It came with 512 RAM and I added a stick a long time ago, had no problems.

    Well, here lately, IE is running very slow and the darn thing freezes up all the time (esp with opening simple folders like My Documents and My Pictures). I never get error messages or the blue screen. The computer is just MUCH slower over the past 6 months or so.

    I have a 50.7GB HD with only about 1.8GB free.

    In Task Manager, explorer.exe used to run about 10,000, but now consistently runs at 80k-90k. I don't know much else than that. i have run HiJackThis logs and done the quick scans online, with minimal to no "nasty" processes.

    Can anyone help?

    thanks.
    Brad
