Hello all. First timer here. I have some knowledge of computers as have used since dos days. I have a e-machine m2350 with windows xp service pack 3. It is extremely slow with everything. Even when you click the start button it often take several seconds before it comes up. I have run several malware programs such as malware byte and hijack this. using microsoft essentials. I quired this because the owner could not get it to run and got a new computer. I have managed to get it running but now slow and accesses hard drive a lot. It only has 448 ram and maybe this is as fast as it goes. All help will be appreciated.

Thanks Al

Hello and Welcome -
The above quote is not unusual on many systems, and many computers (older/smaller XP systems in general) can be slow at startup -
For a slow XP system please start with this Slow Computer Checklist
Make sure you have not over crowded the system, due to the smaller memory capacity.
Generally try to delete any unwanted programs and store any music or pictures onto CDs or DVDs -

If there are more "Specific" problems, please post back with them -
