Hi, I have resurrected an old HP laptop I used years ago. The OS is XP version 2002 SP3.
My Sony Vaio has been diagnosed as too expensive to warrant repair
This laptop is very slow to load Windows and programs are very slow to open
Firewall is Avira. Malwarebytes and Spybot search and destroy are both loaded as is HJT
I have culled any programs that I do not expect to use in the near future
This seems to have helped and the computer is useable - but not much fun !!
I was expecting to post a HJT log but noted in the tutorials this program is not regarded too highly anymore
This is my first post and appreciate any assistance
I am currently in the Asia Pacific region so my normal Tech Shop assistance is not an option

How much RAM do you have installed?

How large is the hdd, and how much free space to you have?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
