My system is terribly slow (IE8 Browser takes about 60 seconds to open). All software executes very slowly also. I do not get any pop-ups, errors or odd behavior outside of the terrible lag. I am coming up clean on my scans. I have done a complete maintenance on my system and all is clean and defragged.

I only have one software active at a time in the processes so they do not conflict.
Software I have used one at a time to try to correct this are:
  • BitDefender Total Security 2010 Beta 1 is my primary security software
  • PC Tools Spyware Doctor
  • SuperAntiSpyware
  • LavaSoft Ad-Aware
  • Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Avast AntiVirus
  • Panda
I have been three weeks chasing this around with no success.

System Information:
  • Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 (build 2600)
  • 2.40 gigahertz Intel Pentium 4
  • 8 kilobyte primary memory cache
  • 512 kilobyte secondary memory cache
  • Board: Intel Corporation D865PERL AAC27648-208
  • 1534 Megabytes Installed Memory
Thank you in advance.

Even if you only one AV at a time, I'm sure having 3 on your system will cause conflicts

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
