    Hi,
    Windows XP w/service pack 3 . computer brand unknown but labeled as a GIGABYTE brand (purple motherboard) w/2gig of ram.

    I work from home and need this computer. I run a ton of software apps at once and depend on this to keep my family alive. Please help as I do not trust registry fix software. I have Google Chrome, FireFox, IE8, and Opera (for work reasons) I have Avast, Zone Alarm, Search and Destroy, Adaware, and a couple of other like malwarbytes and Lavasoft. I defrag and system clean regularly and run one scan from a different (see above) spyware or virus scan per night. How can I spped the computer back to its usually fast running speed. This is a recent problem.

    Thanks,

    Uninstall Windows Search 4.0 from your "Add or Remove Programs". It's a system resource hog.

    I would get rid of Ad-Aware. You already have a much better anti-spyware, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.

    Other than your antivirus, firewall and Internet connectivity service, the Startup Type on most of your non-Microsoft Services (from programs YOU have installed), can be changed from Automatic to Manual. This will reduce the amount of processes running in the background and speed up your computer.

    Run Autoruns.

    Click on Options.

    Put a check mark on Hide Microsoft and Windows Entries.

    Hit the F5 key to refresh your page.

    Select the Services tab.

    Only non-Microsoft services will be showing.

    Right-click on any service.

    Click on Jump to...

    You will now be at the exact registry key for that service.

    In the right-hand pane, look at the DWORD Start.

    The last number at the end of the entry will be either:

    (0) for Boot.

    (1) for System.

    (2) for Automatic.

    (3) for Manual.

    (4) for Disabled.

    If you want to change the value, double-click on Start and change the number accordingly.


    Reboot the computer.


    If still slow, try disabling ZoneAlarm.

    Start HijackThis, but don't run a scan.

    Click on the "Open The Misc Tools Section" button.

    Click on the "Open Uninstall Manager" button.

    Click the "Save List" button.

    Save the "uninstall_list.txt" file somewhere. It'll then open in Notepad.

    Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the entire file here.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Get rid of Uniblue Registry Booster and any other registry cleaner/optimizer/booster/tuneup program that you have installed.

    They do nothing to improve speed or performance. What they can do is break certain programs and damage the operating system.

    You need to double-click on Start. In there, you'll be able to change the number. It'll be a single digit, the one appearing in the parentheses.

    You need to uninstall

    Advanced Registry Optimizer (by Sammsoft)

    Uniblue RegistryBooster

    before you trash your computer with them.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Personally, I'd get rid of

    Lavasoft Ad-Aware

    Spybot - Search & Destroy


    and replace them with

    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.45

    SUPERAntiSpyware 4.35.0.1002

    Thanx, Flavallee! I doing it right now!
    Is there anything else I can do to maintain as much speed as possible. Making my living from home is a dream come true for me. Both my wife and mother are disabled and have to be cared for. It used to take almost every penny I made to pay for someone to do it. Now I can do it myself and still make a living. Any suggestions to keep this computer going, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated!

    Delete the contents of these 2 temp folders on a regular basis because they can accumulate a massive number of files and folders over time. It's all junk and it's a good place for a "nasty" to hide and do its dirty deed. I recommend doing it once or twice a month. If a few files resist deletion, leave them alone and delete everything else.

    C:\WINDOWS\Temp

    C:\Documents And Settings\(Username)\Local Settings\Temp
