I am using Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit OS and have noticed over the last few days it is very slow. Also when using several programs I get not responding for up to 5 mins, then it comes back. Need some help in fixing speed and other issues found.

Thanks

Hi tim_ver ,

  • What is your computer make and model number?
  • What is new since the computer began to slow down (new hardware, software, malware. other)?
  • What security software is currently running on your system?

Regards,
Brooks

Uninstall Spybot as it is garbage. Spybot and norton are both Ram hogs FYI

Open MSconfig disable everything except your antivirus.If you connect wirelessly then do not disable anything that reads wireless.REoot.You do not need anything other than your AV starting with your machine.

Hit the start button in lower left hand corner. Then in the run box type msconfig, then hit the services tab then put a check mark in hide microsoft services what is listed there,after hiding microsoft services?Please post back to us in a vertical list.

unzip Autoruns to your desktop run it.See any entries that read file not found when you see them right click and select delete do this only for the entries that read file not found also uncheck any scheduled task that are set to run on your machine,close the program.


After completing the above task then Please download TFC by Old Timer and save it to your desktop.
