Hi, I am running Windows XP Professional, version 2002 service pack 3. Hardware: Intel® M processor 1.60GHZ, 589 MHz, 512MB of RAM. I feel as if I have gone through all the pre-steps prior to this post. I have noticed for some time a decrease in speed not only via internet but overall operation within my pc. I have run registry defrags, cleaned up old unused programs, defragged my registry, disk etc. Managed my startup programs, insured all AVG antivirus is up to date with results of no viruses. Using spybot results as well with no spyware. It is just overall slow. I feel I am a moderate pc literate user and cannot seem to figure out exactly what would be causing this. I have researched and found that with my dell inspiron 9200 laptop that the wireless onboard driver also installs its own management application that could slow my pc down. I have managed to uninstall this and only the driver is installed. Windows now instead is managing my wireless network adapter. Is it possible my CPU processor is just to slow? I do not have a large amount of applications installed. Would someone be willing to consider looking at a HJT log? I am new to HJT however have played with it some... Any help to get started with troubleshooting would greatly be appreciated. Thanks!
