Okay, I'm on some big situation.
As of lately, my machine started to have some issues. It started freezing on what seemed to be RAM conflict after I close Firefox a few days ago, not to mention my Windows Media Player giving a couple of error messages and closing.
At first, I tried a scan on my computer, and Malwarebytes found a malicious register, that was removed.
But the issues persisted, and the machine froze twice this morning, during shutdown. It also was so friggin' slow, it was LAGGING, judging by the movement of the mouse cursor.
I've opened the PC to check the inside and found a hell of a mountain of dust that was promptly removed. The PC didn't give me any headache again as of today, but it is getting slower to shut down. WAY SLOWER.
I'm entering some panic here. I don't know what is going on with my 5-year old computer, and I don't have a single penny to buy another one by now. I can't risk being MONTHS or YEARS without a computer again (unless some apocalypse happens and I'm forced to do so).
I am at some big loss here, and I need help right now.
My machine is has a PC Chips A15G motherboard, Sempron 3400+ 1.8GHz processor, 1GB RAM, Windows XP SP3, GeForce 6150SE onboard video.
