It's a Lenovo 400s 4gb ram pentium three 9600 and it is driving me nuts...always the blue wheel spinning regardless of running only one program.
I have defragged, lessened the start-up services, attempted to reduce the backround services (but that usually ends up in the blue screen of death) and there must be something I can do. I am typing now from my trusty old Toshiba Tecra with XP and boy I wish it weren't being phased out next year.
Am at a loss.
For some odd reason I also cannot access Resource Monitor...just get the blue wheel...Windows Defender is also not running for some reason even though the default start is auto. Am using Microsoft Security Essentials and am not quite sure if that is the same thing.
Ran Malwarebytes and no problems.
Am about to throw this computer out the window. Any ideas what to do?
