Mod Edit: Split posts from "Slow Computer?". ~bloopie

 

I have an older dell computer running xp professional sp3. For the last few months my systems performance has gone steadily downhill, I have run several tune-up, anti-virus/spyware, and windows registry checkers cannot find any issues and performance is still getting worse. Could someone please help. Could this be some kind of hardware issue and not software??

It might be a hardware issue. Have you run a diagnostic check of your hard drive?

You'd get a better response if you started your own thread. In fact, I'll ask that this is moved. Meanwhile, the fact that you've run registry cleaners is troublesome. They CAUSE problems, they don't cure them. The best registry cleaners are benign and do nothing. The worst of them can leave your system unusable.

Hi -

You could list the Dell Model and post a snapshot with Speccy as this may give us a bit more to look at -
Publish a Snapshot using Speccy << Follow These Directions

 

Thank You -
