Conspire over in the Malware forums recently refered me here for help as I do not have a malware issue. He thinks its a XP operating system issue or hardware.
I am running XP Pro on my computer. My computer is running very slow and takes forever to open any software application. Many applications will start to run but just stop forcing me to restart my computer. When I start my machine it will take a while to boot and a long pause with a black screen before it starts to boot up into windows xp. In addition when launching a program, if you watch the task manager you can see a selected application kind of running but it will not run correctly untill it has enough memory to run. I am not sure if I have a hardware or software issue. I am not sure where to start or what to do at this point. I hope this information in addition to the malware posts will help find a solution. I have also worked through all the guides listed with little or no success. I am missing somthing or doing someing incorrectly. Any advice would be very welcome at this point.
