    I have a new Samsung netbook with Windows 7. It performs ok in general but I really need to use Skype. When I try to use it it says that the computer is running slow or very slow and Skype won't work. Which programs / processes should I shut down? I was hoping someone might be able to provide something similar to this post by Phantom http://forums.techguy.org/windows-xp/960230-solved-netbook-slow.html

    Many thanks

    PS I've no use for Bluetooth etc....

    Go here and click the green icon to download and save HiJackThis 2.0.4.

    After it's been downloaded and saved, close all open windows first, then double-click the saved file to install it.

    Allow it to install in its default location - C:\Program Files.

    After it's been installed, start it and then click "Do a system scan and save a log file".

    When the scan is finished in less than 30 seconds, a log file will appear.

    Save that log file.

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


    How much RAM does it have?
