Hi Guys,

My pc has been running very slow for the last week. I am constantly getting a low virtual memory warning.

I have not downloaded or ran any new programs.

I have followed the Slow Computer Checklist, Defragged the pc, ran a virus scan with Norton and windows defender and malware scans with Malwarebytes and Adaware. Adaware had found a critical malware and was deleted (forgot the name). I have also ran Atf cleaner and CCleaner. I also checked the start-up programs and everything looked ok.

I have xp, My hard drive 40 % full and have 960 mb of Ram

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you play a game that requires high ram and CPU speed on a system that doesnt meet requirements, this is supposed to happen :thumbsup:

I know you most likely don't want to read this.In todays computing it is necessary to update your computer to more H/D, Video card, Ram, and most likely cooling, and yes a CPU. Some times when you or I go to one of our favorite web sites we will get a notice, (there is a new version for downloading). This is normally for better security and to, shall we say to blend better with todays computers. This normally doesn't help older slower computers.
