I have been recently experiencing problems with slow computer start up, it used to load up really fast but now it takes 5 minutes at least until the whole thing is ready to use. Also, when playing music and then opening another application of any kind on the computer at the same time the music slows down or fades and the whole computer goes slow. I have adaware checked it, spyware checked it, defragmented it and cleaned the registry but it is making no difference at all.
The computer is an AMD Athlon(ym) XP 2700+
2.6 GHz, 512 MB of RAM
Also I am only using 13.6GB of the 37.2 GB space there is on the C Drive.
A few months back there was a virus on the computer and no firewall for a short space of time but there is now a firewall and virus checks are constantly run as well as spyware and defragmenting.
I'm not that clued up on computers as most of you will be and so would be greatful of any advice, but I dont want to risk losing anything on my computer as its very important stuff and I need this computer for work!!
Thanks for any help. Sara
