This my son's computer:
Toshiba Satellite L455D-S5976
Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit
AMD Sempron SI-42
2GB DDR2 ram, 250gb hdd
Son complained earlier that the computer has been running slowly lately. I took a look at it originally and found that AVG was out of date -- seemed to have problems initializing. After having no luck getting it to initialize and/or update, I removed and reinstalled it. That seemed to work. Then had problems with system seemingly hanging or running slowly (unable to distinguish). After multiple attempts, I was able to get Task Manager to run -- nothing out of the ordinary that I could see. Getting nowhere I cycled power and brought it up in Safe Mode (Network Support). Everything ran fine there, so I downloaded/installed CCleaner and ran thru it's default selections of stuff. Booted normally but still experienced hang problems. Re-ran CCleaner and started turning off services that appeared non-standard (myriad of updaters, non-MS or AVG stuff). Now seems to be worse.
System is running extremely slow. Appeared to be hung when I started this post but it does appear now to be progressing, albeit like molasses. I've gotten past the "Welcome" screen and eventually have a bottom icon bar. But as I write this I have an hourglass icon and no desktop icons yet.
At this point I'm at a loss what to do. Earlier it booted Safe Mode both with and w/o network support. Before beginning this post I tried booting Safe Mode w/Network and, for some reason after loading the drivers (and a long delay) it rebooted on it's own.
Among other installed software:
Any assistance is appreciated!
