Well I do my best to keep this 6yr old pc up and running since my laptop is down temp. I use all the best tools but this thing has been going crazy lately! Ok I cant defrag unless in safe mode then it takes 2 hours! Everything is slow. It crashes often and freezes even more. Infact it crashed 2 time in under 12 mins today! Just using a program that requires very little ram(32mb I have over 96+). Its not spyware my HJT log is clean. I run adware,spybot 1.3 final,a2,avg on it and still slow. I run scandisk and everytime I do it says I have some errors and it fixed them. Well I have tried everything and dont know what to do other than get a new pc. Is there anything I can do that I havent done yet?

If you are sure that itis not spyware or other malware...could be you just need a reinstall. Because i constantly install new programs and uninstall them etc etc...everntually windows gets a little messed up and I reinstall to get it back in good shape.

I was thinking the same thing. Im pretty posotive im clean as HJT says....a2 and avg too! Only problem is that I paid 1000.00 for this whole pc kit almost 6 years ago. Back then I had very little knowledge about what I needed in a pc. Well as the story goes on I did not get any restore disks(maybe they didnt have them back then) nor did I get a 98se disk! So what else can I do let me just say I have a 18.6 gb hdd after windows takes up its part and I have 11.7gb used 6.@@ free. So my space is coming to a halt anyways. I guess its time for a new pc! Not that im not happy about getting a new pc(just dont buy one from a online syco lol!!) just dont want to spend the money at the moment. I dont know what I was expecting posting this here maybe a miracle cure for this old guy....
Thanks
