My daughter's computer runs very, very slow. Running windows XP. There doesn't appear to be anything unusual in the msconfig startup, and the only program statup is Microsoft Office. I have Norton Antivirus, Windows Defender, and Spywareblaster installed. I tried to run Trend Micro Housecall three times, but every time it just disappears right in the middle of running. Any suggestions!!!!! :thumbsup:
