My wife's Dell Lat D610 runs WIN 2000. She was experiencing slow operations with all programs.
I tried to run disk defragmenter - it finally completed running after several tries.
I tried to run Spybot S&D - again, many attempts in order to get it to run, which it did. It found several 56 entries (2 individual and 54 of one item - no recollection of what they were).
I tried to run Lavasoft's Adaware - it lock every time I run it. The same is true of Bit Defender, Panda Software's antivirus scan and Trend Micro's Housecall scan.
Hijack this runs but locks.
Microsoft products are very slow, or lock. the entire operating system locks from time to time.
The laptop has sustained a fall, which is when things got really bad, but I don't think that is the only thing that is wrong. She complained of locking and slow program execution prior to the incident.
Is there a simple program that can determine the presence of spyware, trojan, virus without the same operations as Adaware/Housecall, etc so it will not lock?
Be Strong And Courageous!
