Hi all, i have an inspiron 1011 that i only use for car diagnostic purposes and some basic surfing and it seems to be running really sluggish. I have tried all the usual clean ups ccleaner, malwarebytes etc and uninstalled a lot of things i do not use but it has not really helped.

It hangs a lot on the internet and is also slow when double clicking icons etc things tend to take a while to load with the timer showing.

Its running xp sp 3 has 1 gb of ram and has a hard drive listed as 111 gb capacity.

Any tips on what may be causing it to be so slow, i know its an old machine but im not asking it to do alot really.

Thanks in advance.
