Hi!
My system uses Intel 810 Motherboard and Penitum -3, 800MHZ processor. I have Windows XP Professional installed. My problem is that the system has slowed down very much. It takes a very long time to even load the interface fully. Most of the programs in Startup (MSConfig)
also do not load. I have recently installed Norton 2005. I have scanned the system for Trojans, viruses, Spyware\Adware etc. But nothing shows up. Is it because of NAV?? MSConfig/Startup also does not have any unknown entries. How do I speed up my system. Please Help Me

Follow the above link and download Spybot Search and Destroy and Ad-Aware SE UPDATE them and do a scan with both getting rid of all they find

Do a scan with Housecall and Panda

If you have a lot of startups you might look here to reduce them and speed up the computer a bit . http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_index.htm

After doing ALL the above

Download Hijack This 1.99.0 Do a scan and post the log here please.
