I have an HP6735b laptop. AMD Athlon X2 Dual Core QL-66 2.20 GHz, 1.74 GB of RAM. It has Windows XP installed. I bought the computer used and while it is still under warranty until November, it is very slow. I am trying to figure out what is wrong with this computer! I routinely run Spy Sweeper and McAfee, but the computer seems quite clean. Tried de-fragging and disk cleanup. I also downloaded Startup Manager and disabled a number of unnecessary start-up processes (like Skpe, ITunesHelper, etc). I discovered two items that seemed strange: TheReocrdNavigatorDetector (with no file path) and an item without a name or filepath. I tried to disable them, but the was told "the item is corrupted and can't be enabled/disabled." Might this be the problem? Or is just an issue with my CPU or RAM? Or is it likely that I have some sort of a virus, spyware, etc that have not been discovered by the programs I routinely run? Thanks for any help you can offer...
