My name is Pat (depth3d). I am hoping that someone is going to pull me out of a tight spot here.
I build and animate 3D models. I am 46 and came to this pretty late on in life. I can navigate my way around a PC from a user point of view but am pretty bleep at the intricacies of getting to grips with how they work and why they sometimes don't.
My system uses two 2.4 Xeon processors with a Raid 5 setup using 5 SCSI HDD's with one 120GB IDE HDD for storage. I have 1GB memory and an ATI GL-Fire X2-256t graphics card. Usually I have enough processing power here to launch rockets and run small countries. But now it is as sluggish as a sluggish thing what is very sluggish. It takes about a minute to respond to certain commands and is totally useless for getting any serious work done. I have the latest AVG freebie and have scanned the system a couple of times which seems to detect the same Trojan over and over again.
If anyone can offer any advice (bearing in mind the simplistic nature of my personal understanding of how these things function - or not in my case) I would be really really grateful.
