    Hi there,

    I just wondered as to whether anyone could help me!

    My Desktop is running so slow - it is connected to the network at a speed of 2.0mbps even 1.0mbps at times. I know its nothing wrong with my network as all the other laptops and desktops connected are connected at a rate of over 26.0 mbps.

    I ran a disk defragment to see if that would help it but no it didn't. I have just ran a Spyware check using "SuperAntiSpyware Professional" and one thing i notice is that it scans over 200,000 memory items (no joke) whereas on my laptop i have only 700 memory items. The bulk of the memory items seem to be in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\RUNDLL32.exe There must be something wrong here? I uninstalled all the programmes that i do not use - still no progression. Virus scanned it using Avast - still no progression - i wonder if anyone could help possible - any help would be much appreciated.

    Also, when downloading updates automatically - it takeds nearly an hour just to download them, let alone install them! So there is definitly something going wrong here?

    Many Thanks in advance,
    Simon
