My buddies Inspiron 1011 is acting a bit annoying and I need help please.
Initially, it was thought to have some nasty malware, and malwarebytes took care of the popups and it would seem everything else, per the latest scans.
It is running XP Home version 2002 sp3, Intel Atom CPU n280 @1.66ghz with .99gb ram
I have done a chkdisk, sfc, disk cleanup, malware bytes, avast antivirus, disabled unnecessary startup items in msconfig, run a rootkit analyser, deleted the .DMP & .TMP files, and still experience the following:
slow boot up
audio crackles and is choppy
windows load scrolling down slow and choppy
OS lags when switching or opening programs
What else could this be?!
Any assistance is appreciated, and if I should be referred to a malware forum, I'll go there, but thought I should try here first.
