slow runnning

Unread postby crabhead » June 10th, 2008, 6:30 pm


My pc is gradually getting slower, ive defragged etc, cleaned out things I dont need, ran the latest spybot, and ran the sfc /scannow to replace any possible missing files.

Now when im trying to unstall some programs the uninstaller is hanging, various prgrams wont end and my 2 cd drives wont autoplay, nor will they find anything when i go Start, run, D: or E: - again they hang and I get the message this program is not responding.

so please help!
