My PC will often take over 20 minutes just to start up and get to a state where I can ask it to do anything! More often than not, it takes so long, I give up and just switch it back off again. It frequently crashes and freezes and Ctrl Alt Del is becoming a way of life. :thumbsup: Often, even when I don't have any applications open, the hard drive is whirring away busily, and I am unable to get it to do anything, while this is happening. If I check the number of processes in Task Manager, there are often 70, before I even get round to opening any programmes. Internet Explorer is so slow, I have practically given up going online. I get 'this programme is not responding' continually.... If I view photos in Windows Picture Viewer and rotate them, I frequently get an error message (I'm sure it's to do with Internet Explorer) telling me it has to shut the programme down because it's encountered an error.....I have defragmented the hard drive, run disk clean up (are they one and the same - so confused, can't remember!) deleted the cache, run a registry cleaner, probably done just about everything that has been recommended. Tried to run 'autoruns' but don't understand it, so better leave alone!

Operating system is Windows XP Home edition, Physical memory is 512 mb, virtual memory 2gb and I'm running F-Secure 2009 virus software. I've attached a Hijack This log, just in case it's relevant - please can someone take a look at it, because I'm not very technically knowledgeable and I don't think I can go any further on my own....

Thank you
Loopy Lu
