Recently when I am on either they both keep saying not responding and just hang for quite a while. Do you know why this could be happening? I have windows xp

    Hi Barbaranna please do the following.



    Hit start run then type msconfig then hit the services tab then hit put a check mark in hide microsoft services what is listed there,after hiding microsoft services?Also what is listed under the startup tab.


    Listproccess
    A very small program that simply lists the processes that Task Manager lists, including the full path name so you can see what program they are part of. You can easily copy and paste the list into a text file for before/after comparisons, or to email/forum when asking for computer help. You may be surprised at what is running on your computer! Some processes waste a lot of computer resources and make your computer sluggish.
    Download ListProcesses for Windows HERE Save the file to the desktop.


    • Once downloaded to the desktop
    • Double click the Listproccess Icon
    • Click run
    • When the window opens "select" GetList
    • Scroll to bottom of the window and click on Copy
    • Reply to this thread and paste the contents of the list so we can see it.
    Please download MiniToolBox HERE When the box opens click save file, save it to the desktop and run it.

    Checkmark the following boxes:

    • Flush DNS
    • List Installed Programs
    • List Users, Partitions and Memory size
    • Click Go and post the result.

    so are you saying that it will just not start them up but will not remove them and they will be ready when I need them?
