Old computer getting really slow

Unread postby carlrobison1 » July 9th, 2008, 12:05 pm

This is an older computer, but up until a couple weeks ago, it ran fine for what I needed it to do. Now, everything is slow. I use it mostly for surfing the net, but even opening up IE and then loading pages has slowed down. Here's the HJT file:

Only 512, the max it allows. But I've always had that much memory and never experienced everything being so slow.

Due to Lack of Response this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
