My problem is a little non-descript.
I have a HP Pavilion running Vista Home Premium SP 2
AMD Athlon 64 x2 5200+ 2.7GhZ
5.00g of RAM
It is running slow, and with only a little exaggeration sounds like a hair dryer. I use AVG and the built in firewall.
I dont game, I dont do much of anything except read articles. AVG has found little to nothing so cant say I suspect malware--but what do I know.
It runs so hard it shuts itself off--after this occurs on first reboot I am told windows could NOT fix the problem.
Sorry for the ineptitude, but Ive never had such a generic kind of problem with comps Ive owned for years. This is however the first Vista system I have used, and i know correlation doenst imply causation...
Anyway suggestions on what my problem might be and how to fix it would be very much appreciated.
NOTE: I read a LOT of PDFs. I am hoping that I wasnt exploited on that avenue.
