I recently made these changes :
Ran WinsockXPFix from this site: http://www.snapfiles.com/get/winsockxpfix.html. I was having trouble with IE7 throwing an error on shutdown and thought that would fix it, but it did not.
I think the slowness started after I did this one above but not sure because I was doing this next thing about the same time:
Added a Linksys wireless G router (Using Ethernet to the pc in question though)
To get the router working I had to reboot the DSL modem and run this on the command line: netsh winsock reset
Tried this stuff:
I ran Adaware, Spybot S&D and found nothing unusual but some tracking cookies which i deleted. I also disabled Windows Defender, MSAutoUpdates to no effect.
I have XP home ed. SP2 with current updates.
CPU is P4 2.66ghz
memory= 1.256 gig
2 hard drives, DVD player, CD writer
I use Windows Firewall, Windwos Defender.
I have Bellsouth DSL
I have disabled services that I don't need
I have no virus scanner (I like to live dangerously!) but I tried and uninstalled AVG Free and Komodo firewall a few months ago (at the time I lacked memory - what a hog)
Any ideas? Thanks
