I've included the link to your other thread below so other members viewing this thread can see what all was accomplished.Infected! Many Problems Need Help Dont know what to do?
I would suggest you follow Broni's advice by adding another GB of RAM.
First let's perform some basic maintenance to see if that will help:1st:
- Download Ccleaner
Install and use with the default settings. NOTE:
Ccleaner includes a Registry cleaner, and we advise not to use this or any
registry cleaner as there have been reports of them clearing out needed registry entries and messing up PCs. In addition, what they do clean up is so small that little or no advantages are noticed.
Modifying registry keys incorrectly can cause Windows instability, or make Windows unbootable. No registry cleaner is completely safe and the potential is ever present to cause more problems than they claim to fix.
Registry cleaners cannot distinguish between good and bad. If you run a registry cleaner, it will delete all those keys which are obsolete and sitting idle; but in reality, those keys may well be needed by some programs or windows at a later time.
TOUR > CCleaner - After Installation2nd:
- Please download TFC (Temporary File Cleaner)
to run it.Note:
If you are running on Vista or Win7, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator
TFC will close all programs
when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin
. And don't be alarmed when your desktop disappears, it will reappear upon reboot.
TFC requires a reboot immediately after running. Be sure to save any unsaved work before running TFC.3rd:
- Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process.
- Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two.
- Please do not be alarmed when your desktop disappears. It will reappear after reboot.
- Please let TFC run uninterrupted until it is finished.
- Disk cleanup
which is included in Windows.
Go to > Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup4th:
- Windows Defrag- I personally prefer Auslogics Disk Defrag
though you will find Windows defrag is included with Windows.
Go to > Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Defragmenter
Why Auslogics Disk Defrag?
It does a more comprehensive job at Defragging
It will actually show you what it is doing
At the end of working it will show you how much speed you picked up5th:

I see you have 2 Readers Installed. You really only need one. I'd uninstall the one of your choice to regain space. I prefer Foxit Reader myself, but the choice is yours.
ABBYY FineReader 6.0 Sprint (Version: 6.00.1784.41616)
Foxit Reader (Version: 126.96.36.1991)
Please post back when finished with an update on how the computer is running. I'll have a closer look today after work.
