new dell 8250 w/ xp home was sluggish so deleted temp int. files etc. and ran virus scan w/ mcafee. Mcafee said had [email protected] virus. Quarantined and deleted file and ran another scan w/ no sign of virus, however comp. remains extremely slow and programs don't respond and have to restart. Then it will work ok for a few minutes and then back to not responding. I had been d-loading a couple of movies and songs from winmx which seems to coincide w/ start of prob. but not sure. On cable modem and doesn't seem to be any effect on internet sites? Any ideas?

try a defrag,

also have you enough free space on the drive that holds your temp and pagefile ?

make your page file fixed and set it to min = max 1 1/2 times your ram

Gooly, if the "fix" posted in the other thread doesn't resolve the problem (and I'm assuming klez is gone), post a copy of your current startups using the StartupList application from the site below. Download, unzip and run it, then copy/paste the results to a reply here:

Appears info from other thread solved problem. Previously deleted quarantined KLEZ file, figured a check on Start up app's might not be bad idea. Have already dropped a few based on those listed in PACMAN. Any final thoughts? StartupList report, 1/29/2003, 4:29:21 PM

Looks clean to me. You might want to uncheck all that Dell stuff in msconfig; I have a Dell system and that was about the first thing I did when I got it.

I've also never been able to figure out just what this was good for (modem messaging?):

BCMSMMSG = BCMSMMSG.exe

I've run with it both checked and unchecked, doesn't seem to affect the modem or connectivity one way or another.
