    Hello,

    My system suddenly just became VERY VERY slow.

    I am running Windows XP SP 3.

    Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3.2GHz
    2 GB RAM

    I did an AVG full system scan, nothing detected.
    I did a Malware Bytes scan, nothing detected.

    Although my system is 6 years old, it has been running fine without any major problems.

    Just a few days ago I noticed it became VERY VERY slow. I thought it was because it was on for a few days, so I did a restart.

    Restart took almost 15 minutes.

    No difference after restart.

    I did a registry defrag. NO difference after registry defrag.

    Please Help.

    Thank you in advance
