I've already ruled out malware as the problem, I've done scans with Avast and MBAM Pro and STILL it is slow. This T135 comes with only 192MB of RAM, which is fine by me as I don't need to play games or anything overly resource-intensive, but I cannot even perform normal computer operations(Browsing the internet, opening files, opening the start menu, etc) when not in Safe Mode. I would think that any maker of computers at least has the decency to include the hardware to make the OS ACTUALLY USABLE.
Here are the specifications(From DXDIAG):
System model/manufacturer: Acer T135/T135A
OS: Windows XP Home Edition
Memory: 192MB RAM
BIOS: Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG
Processor: AMD Sempron Processor 3300+, MMX, 3DNow, ~2.00GHz
Page File: 358MB used, 108MB available
I'm not exactly good with hardware nor do I have the money to buy some RAM. I know there must be a FEW things I can disable at start-up to make it usable, as it runs fine in Safe Mode W/ Networking. I've already tried disabling a few things through MSconfig, and that helped A LITTLE, but its still unbearably slow. Any assistance, BC?
