    My DELL INSPIRON 531S running WINDOWS VISTA SP2 64 BIT is VERY, VERY SLOW. Please HELP to find a way to make it run a little faster. It is frustrating and don't know what to do.

    Click Start, then type MSCONFIG in the search or run box, then press the Enter key.

    When the small "System Configuration" window appears, click the "Startup" tab.

    Write down ONLY the names in the "Startup Item" column that have a checkmark next to them.

    If the "Startup Item" column isn't wide enough to see the entire name of any of them, widen the column.

    Submit those names here in a vertical list.

    Make sure to spell them EXACTLY as you see them there.

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

    Click Start, then type SERVICES.MSC in the search or run box, then press the Enter key.

    When the "Services" window appears, expand it so you can see the list more clearly.

    Write down ONLY the names in the "Name" column that have their startup type set on Automatic and Automatic (Delayed Start).

    If the "Name" column isn't wide enough to see the entire name of any of them, widen the column.

    Submit those names here in a vertical list and in alphabetical order.

    Make sure to spell them correctly.

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

    These are my "canned instructions", but you can submit thumbnail images instead of you want to.

    Just make sure they're large enough and the required information is readable.

    You can send a maximum of 5 images in one reply, so sending 8 of them in 2 replies is normal.

    Give me a few minutes to review your images and send you a reply.

    Go here, then click the large blue "Download Now @ Author's Site" button to download and save TFC.exe (Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer) to your desktop.

    After it's downloaded and saved, close all open windows.

    Double-click it to load its main window.

    Click the "Start" button.

    If there are a large number of temp files or if there are multiple user accounts, the temp file deletion process may appear to freeze and may take a few minutes, so don't interfere with or abort it.

    After it's finished, restart the computer.

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

    Go here, then click the large blue "Download Now @ Bleeping Computer" button to download and save AdwCleaner.exe to your desktop.

    Close all open windows first, then double-click AdwCleaner.exe to load its main window.

    Click the "Scan" button, then allow the scanning process to finish.
    (Note: Several seconds may pass before the scanning process starts, so be patient.)

    Click the "Logfile" button.

    When the log appears, save it.

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

    You submitted only the top half of the AdwCleaner log, but it shows your computer is infested with malware, spyware, etc..

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

    Close all open windows first, then double-click AdwCleaner to load its main window.

    Click the "Scan" button, then allow the scanning process to finish.

    Click the "Cleaning" button, then click "OK".

    Allow the cleaning process to finish.

    When it's finished, click "OK" in each window that appears.

    The computer will restart.

    When the log appears during restart, save it.

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