I have a Dell Dimension E520.
2 Gb Ram. Windows xp
( i have no Xp Cd btw )
I have a problem since a week ago,something happend on my computer
i left the computer overthe night on but not connected to internet..
When i got back to the computer certain processes frooze
such as Iexplorer.exe, Firefox.exe Vlc.exe Explorer.exe
even when i exited them trough the taskmananger they
were still in the process list of taskmananger
unable to remove, so when i started Explorer.exe again
there were two Explorer.exe in my taskmananger then..
the old one still dont work to close, but the new one does?
and internet browser suddenly became very slow ( Firefox,Internet explorer )
all websites can take up to 2-5 minutes long to load,
before they loaded up on 3-5 seconds..
Yes i have reinstalled all browsers too.. removed Add-ons..
Upgraded Java and such..
I have cleared all temp files manually and with programs like
CCLEANER, DiskCleanup. Still the same in both browsers..
I have used Hitman Pro,Malwarebytes anti-malware,Sas,Avg
trojan hunter + microsoft security essentials to remove
a few viruses. some found stuffs the other programs didnt find.
but even after removing those viruses nothing changed,
i'm not even sure if those viruses is the reason for all this.
i have done Chkdsk and Disk Fragment two times on the C disk.
no changes. And i do virus scans on the daily now
and no viruses is now found anymore.
i use a wireless DLink usb that connects to my router.
It has been working fine for years but not now..
All pc's here have fast internet except mine now..
And i have 95,2 Gb free on the 170 Gb C: +
D disk with 50 GB so its no the cause for the slow stuffs either..
I forgot to mention that the is faster when not
connected to internet.
WHATS THE PROBLEM?? i have been trying to figure it out for
1-2 weeks now.. sorry for the long text.
Hope to hear any ideas as fast as possible as i'm
getting more and more frustrated.
