Slight problem with this system.

A Athlon 2200+ XP-M powered laptop (with over 450mb of RAM) which at times seems to lag and go slower then my old 1.1 Athlon, I have removed some programs, there is plenty of room on the hard drive, (well over 15gb), ran spybot and Ad-aware and scanned the hard drives for viruses as well as checked the task manager for programs draining the cpu usage...

Apart from having norton installed for anti-virus and security is there anything that could effect the speed sufficently?

Here is the system's log:

I'm not sure, the only thing that comes to mind is it's something to do with E Trust's Web scanner (That's all I could find on google related to computer associates that could be on this system.

Either that or it's a remander of a old anti virus? (On norton now)

I'd bet on an old AV

You can try removing that folder - might need to do it in safe mode

C:\Program Files\CA

or you can just leave it alone
