    I have a desktop computer which is 8 years old and running Vista Home Edition, 32bit. In the past few months it's gotten very slow and freezes or is nonresponsive if I try to do more than 1 thing at a time. I have 4G of ram installed. I've gone into MSConfig/Startup and disabled all the unnecessary programs from starting at bootup but that really hasn't helped the problem. I'm using Vipre as my antivirus.

    I'm wondering if a reformat would help with this issue or if anyone knows if Vipre could be causing this slowdown. Also, I'm using a magicjack with this computer. When I got it last July I tried running it through my new Linksys router but I had problems so I plugged it directly into the back of my computer.

    Does anybody have any ideas about how to make this computer run better? I've heard reformat MIGHT help but this might be a hardware issue. Any insight is welcome

    how full is your c drive on that computer? you need about 15-20 percent of your drive free for the computer to run efficiently. you can disable vipre to see if it is slowing down your computer.

    Well you did not say that you have experienced errors, freezing, BSOD or other things. Check Task Manager and make sure the machine does see all of your 4gb or ram (well ok you are using 32bit so probably only sees 3.8Gb). Since you have an 8 year old installation a full refresh would be the thing to do, but it would not hurt to use a free rescue disk and test your hdd and ram for issues first.

    Renegade ..... My HD is 500G and I have 256G space available. CleaverX... I do have freezing but no errors and have not had BSOD. Where can I get a free rescue disc?

    Renegade.... I have no other AV software installed except for Vipre. Prior to buying Viper I used to use the free version of AVG. I will take a look at the event viewer to see if I can find any info and if I don't I'm going to uninstall Viper and install AVG and see if that helps. If all else fails I'll look into the rescue disk option. Although I do have the installation discs from when I bought this PC I hate having to wipe everything and start over

    You can get rescue disks online, sorry the moderators do not want us to provide the names, you will be able to boot the computer using the rescue disk and then you can test your hard drive and ram.
    If everything checks out, start gathering all of your licenses and installation disks, then reinstall the OS from scratch, take about 48-72 hours to reinstall all the Windows Updates and Service Packs, make sure you also install all the latest drivers and all the applicable versions of the .Net framework. Then you can start reinstalling all of your software.

    A format and clean reinstall will give a computer a fresh start and breathe new life into it, but it's time-consuming and may not be necessary in your case.

    Do the following in the order that they're listed.

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

    Download and save the TSG System Information Utility (SysInfo.exe) to the desktop.

    After it's been downloaded and saved, double-click it to run it.

    Information about your computer will appear.

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

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

    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.

    Note: After you submit the log, close AdwCleaner. When the warning appears, click "Yes".

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

    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.

    Note: Advise how many temp files in MB's appeared in red.

    Your computer appears to be a Dell Dimension E520 desktop.

    Is that correct?

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

    TFC.exe found and deleted 512 MB of temp files. (y)

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

    AdwCleaner confirmed 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.
