It's been slow for a while, but it's getting worse and after trying to fix it, it doesn't get better at all.
Things that used to run well can hardly run, even opening folders.

Felt this needed mentioning--
If there is no way to make it faster, but restarting the entire computer would make it work, I'm up for that.
I have no CD though. /ok

I suggest that you read the following: Slow Computer-browser Check Here First; It May Not Be Malware - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/87058/slow-computerbrowser-check-here-first;-it-may-not-be-malware/

A system slows down for many reasons, many of which are covered in the link above.

Malware removal logs...such as the ones you attached...are intended to be used for known/suspected cases of malware...not for general computer problems which may be handled in the XP forum.

Sadly, I did all of this except for . . . cleaning the inside of the laptop.
The screw is stripped or something, so I can not take the keyboard out (I guess I'll have to go buy tools for it now, eh?).

The thing that makes me write off on that is when you look at the first link I put up, it shows my temp is at 62* which I believe is no where near over heating. Yet, it is noticeably slow to the point of where I can count to at least ten while opening folders (not even ones with many files).

My CPU usage goes to 40% or so if I open a folder. If I'm playing a game called 'Ragnarok Online', it goes to 80-100% usage while walking through 'doors'.
It didn't happen over time, so I'm not thinking it's because of my computer slowly degrading or filling up. I'm up for just resetting the whole thing as I already removed many things my computer had while attempting to free up space.

62 degree is near over heating...some BIOS have some default setting on autoshutdown in 65 degree...
try a couple software to check the heat...just to make sure that you not get over heat problem...dont use one software...sometime a software cant make some error reading...

62 degrees...Celsius...will indicate overheating for many CPUs, let alone the other components inside a laptop. 60 degrees Celsius will probably be the listed max operating temp for a hard drive.

But, you are right...your CPU range seems to extend up to 95 degrees Celsius.

OTOH...your hard drive temperature is higher than should be expected by me...even considering that it is a laptop. Hard drives where the temp refflected is over 50...are a matter of concern, IMO. You might want to run the appropriate diagnostic on that.

Overheating has been known to cause the effects that you cite.

If 60 is the danger level then I guess you are right. I wrote it off like I said earlier because of how I read my laptop doesn't care about heat till 95* or so.

Ahm, I'll get back to this thread after I get something to extract the screws.
