Hello! I am new to the site, though I have come across it several times before in my google searches for answers to my computer problems. I am now discouraged enough to feel brave enough to sign up and ask for help! I am pasting my registry log following this description of my problem.

I have a computer that was built a year or so ago by someone that I- as well as a few co-workers- discovered to be less than honest. My computer was actually the best of the bunch, but while it should be a fairly decent system with the processor speed and ram, etc., it often runs suboptimally due to the short cuts taken when building, shoddy system devices (my sound card is pathetic and I had to buy a new video card within the week), really old drivers, etc.

To make a long story shorter, often I'm not sure what my problems stem from. Recently I have started playing the Sims again and this computer ran the game and all xpacs fine 6 or 8 months ago, because the game isn't that hard on most systems, and mine far exceeds the sys reqs. Now the game runs very slowly, a bit jittery, and it's a pain to scroll across the screen because it hangs up and is slow. That's just a software example. Other, non-software specific problems include my mouse (which is a cordless by Logitech) has been hanging up sometimes when I am scrolling across my desktop. It only does it sporadically and does it more on the desktop than in a menu window, for example. Opening some of my files is slow, but I thought I might have too much in the downloads section of My Docs since I download lots of Sims Objects.

There are other things, but it's all kind of general. What I wanted, was any advice/hints you might have, as well as input on how my reg log looks. I regularly run AdAware and Spybot. I degrag when it lets me (I often have scandisk and defrag problems) so I can start narrowing down the latest batch of performance issues. For the heck of it, and in case this post isn't long enough (my apologies!!!!) I'm including dxdiag system info because maybe my system is just hopelessly low budjet and I need to quit trying to optimize! Any help would be appreciated more than you know!!!!! Thanks!

Have you tried to update your Java? You are using netscape? I know this seems really short but,,a lot of game problems are related to Java.

Hi, thanks for replying. :) I've used netscape before, but I use IE almost all of the time and it's my default browser.

The game I mentioned is not on online game- it's a simulation game like Sim City, but it's focus is on the Sims themselves. Really, the game is just one aspect of my computer problem and the way it manifests in The Sims is drag when scrolling with the mouse, and slow scrolling and a bit of choppiness. In other performance issues, non-game related, I get some drag at times with my mouse on my desktop (I have changed the batteries in my cordless mouse very recently) and slowness when opening files in some areas (namely My Documents, which DOES house downloads for the Sims, which can get very full) and other similar type annoyances.

I was hoping that maybe someone could take a look at my registry log and see if there is stuff in my startup list that is unnecessary, or any other suspicious registry entries that were somehow missed by AdAware, Spybot, Norton (which I have uninstalled now) and Solo Antivirus (which I used as an online scan). Thanks so much!
