    I'm using a refurbished Patriot 3060 laptop, 1.5GHz Pentium M processor with 512MD DDR-RAM, running Windows XP SP3. Internet Explorer 8/Firefox 3.5 seem to take a long time to load up and Kaspersky updates very slowly. I've tried to defragment the hard drive, but it won't do it, even after running chkdsk.

    HJT log follows:

    Kaspersky full scan can't find anything, Ad-Aware full scan can't find anything and Spybot S&D scan can't find anything.

    Is there anything I can do to speed this thing up? Oh, I don't get any options on Startup before Windows launches either, so no setup option.

    how long has it been that you emptied your temp files? ATF-Cleaner.exe is a good little free program that cleans 4 temp files , cookies , and a few other things . You can get it here .

    I run Disk Cleaner, the Delete All (including offline files) on Internet Options and the file shredder on Spybot S&D frequently as I'm paranoid.

    And it tells me it can't run CHKDSK fully on startup for some reason. Bizarre.

    Thanks for the suggestion though, I'll give it a try.
