This notebook computer has slowed down over time and is currently running very slowly.  Happens more often than not, but not always.  Seems worse the longer it is on.  I'm wondering if another gb of ram would help.

Acer Aspire 5517, 3gb ram, 250gb hd, Win 7, F-secure antivirus, malwarebytes free

 

Most frequently run programs are Quicken, Firefox, and Freecell

Here is the HijackThis log

It is when your using Quicken that it slow down or even when you just boot it up ? I notice a few bars and software in your Hijackthis.log it surely does not help the situation.

Often on start up, start up is slow, opening any programs are slow, specially Quicken

 

Not sure what "bars and software" refers to??

posted reply above but will repeat, boot up is fine till Win7 starts, often really slow to complete startup and load desktop, all programs slow to load, specially Quicken.

thanks for the repsonse but I don't know what "bars and software" refer to??

 

looking for suggestions on what to fix/delete or any hardware suggestions, I think I need another GB of ram at least, but I think there is more going on than low memory.

what is using so much of the memory i have??

 

Thanks, Jim

It depends on what's causing the problem if you'll see any immediate improvement by adding RAM

 

If infected, I'd suggest posting over in the Am I Infected forum:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/
Please read the pinned topics at the top of the forum for instructions on how to post there.

Otherwise, let's start with this report (this report will need to be done once the system has slowed down):

Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on Administrative Events
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).
