I have tried everything I know to do, and I am at a loss. My computer is suddenly SLOW in all browsers (Firefox, Chrome, IE), and all native applications (Photoshop, CorelDraw, etc).
I uninstalled Real Player (seemed to start right after I installed Real Player)
I have a Windows 7 home premium computer, HP Pavilion p6120f Desktop PC, Motherboard Manufacturer: Asus, Motherboard Name: IPIBL-LB, HP/Compaq motherboard name: Benicia-GL8E, pc2-6400 ddr2 sdram 2gb • CL=6 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR2-800 • 1.8V • 256Meg x 64, 16g ram, etc.
It suddenly slowed down in the last week or so. My husband just got rid of RocketTab, and we are on the same network, but I don't have that same program. He's now running at speed.
I have run: Internet speed test, Malwarebytes (found nothing), Spybot (found nothing), my native antivirus McAfee (found nothing), tdsskiller (found nothing). I ran a check of my hardware, which found no issues. My hard drive is only about 30% full. I have uninstalled and reinstalled McAfee, I tried removing all temp files, etc, etc.
I am a power user, but not an expert.
I am at a loss, other than reloading Windows from scratch, which is too painful, or taking it to BestBuy, which is too expensive. Can someone help?
I would appreciate it!
