Hi all,
My Sony Vaio running XP is running very slow and I need to try and speed it up somehow.
It is running with 1 gb of memory.
I have done a Hijack this.
Can anybody help me with this?
Thanks,
Craig.

Hi Craig,

Do a Clean Boot and see if that restores your system speed. If it does, then you can do some selective weeding using msconfig to eliminate any unnecessary or resource hogging startups to fix the problem. If it doesn't, that could mean you have a hardware issue.

hmmm. I didn't see any indication of Norton in there - must be my old eyes playing tricks on me.

I did see Symantec listed but I've seen it on lots of systems that perform without any problems. They have pioneered and bought out lots of stuff that is in common usage.

That is not to say I approve of Symantec running any updater service on a system, I don't. I generally prefer updating my installed software at my option but others may need looking after so I'll leave that to their choice.

BTW, I'm a fond believer in using a startup control program for all systems, whether experiencing trouble or not. I use and recommend Quick Startup but there are many others that may be equal. Get QuickStartup Here

When seeing an entry like the following in HijackThis, it tells us Symantec has not been properly uninstalled and left traces:

O23 - Service: Utilità di pianificazione di LiveUpdate automatico - Unknown owner - C:\Program Files\Symantec\LiveUpdate\ALUSchedulerSvc.exe (file missing)

Leftovers from Symantec/Norton can cause quite a lot of grief, especially Internet connection problems, even months later! They should ALWAYS be removed.

Thanks for that Phantom. Also we must keep in mind that HiJackThis often reports "File Missing" only because it isn't cognizant of all recent software. I like to refer to that as unrecognized interdependent convolution. ;) It's a tough world out there and it gets harder and harder to make all things play well together. :)

HijackThis will show A LOT of (file missing) on Microsoft services, when running on a 64-bit version of Windows. They aren't fully compatible.

You should uninstall the following programs:

BearShare
BearShare
SaveTubeVideo 3.8 (20101109)
Search Settings
uTorrentBar Toolbar



I also question Nectar Search Toolbar. Do you know what it is?


I also see you have MalwareBytes installed. Have you run any scans with it?

All those toolbars are foistware/adware. The same goes for the Nectar Search Toolbar.

You should get rid of them. They must have been installed along with other programs.
