win xp media center 2002 sp3   3gb

 

my last xp machine, and it's not a candidate for upgrading for a while.

 

ran like a champ for years, but sometime in the last few months, been bogging down.

 

Sometimes it's firefox (just now updated to ver 48, so we'll see if it improves). Terminating processes with taskmgr doesn't free it up. usually a cold boot is necessary.

 

avast free, teamviewer run 27/7 along with firefox.

 

Installed in the past months... hard to track, but printer software, other stuff I really don't recall.

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 
Checkmark the following checkboxes:
  List last 10 Event Viewer log
  List Installed Programs
  List Users, Partitions and Memory size.
 
Click Go and paste the content into your next post.
 
Also...please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
 
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course): p22004369.gif

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot. You will see the following prompt:

p22004371.gif

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

p22004372.gif

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the p22004370.gif button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

I'm having similar problems.

Try:

1) if you can get FF to behave long enough, type "about:support" on the address bar (no quotes).(Accept the warranty warning)

    slide down to the "Graphics" section and identify your graphics adapter. If it's nVidia or ATI, go to 3).

2) If FF won't behave, download the FREE version of "Speccy" from http://www.piriform.com/.

    Pick the "for home" section and download the free version on the next page.

    When you run it, one of the pieces of information it reveals is the graphics adapter info.

    If it's not ATI or nVidia, then this answer probably won't help you. Disregard.

3) If you have an nVidia or ATI graphics adapter, Google "firefox nVidia XP" (no quotes)

    You'll find several pages of links to ATI and nVidia graphics adapters creating havoc with Firefox

    after v.42.

Hope that helps get you started.

Yes you are.

Your ATI Radeon video "might" be causing a problem with newer FF installations.

 

However, several sites suggest starting FF in "Safe" mode before you start

changing things.

To do this, hold down the "Shift" key as you click on the FF startup.

This disables all your addons so you can try FF without them and see if it

behaves. If you encounter no more problems, disable all the addons after

starting FF normally and then Enable them one by one and restart FF after

each time to see which one causes the problem (very time consuming).

 

If you Google "Firefox radeon xp" (no quotes), you will find all sorts of links

to pages that describe your same problem. Interestingly, the first two items

that I see are from Mozilla itself regarding this problem.

The second item in the list takes you to this page:

 

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/upgrade-graphics-drivers-use-hardware-acceleration

 

If nothing there seems to improve the situation, slide down to:

Using the latest generic graphics drivers

and pick the AMD/ATI link.

 

They have a section that helps you pick out your latest driver.

 

If none of that is helpful, go back to the Google listings and

start researching.

 

Hope that helps

I don't really see anything pointing to a problem.

 

I suggest that you run the chkdsk /r command on the C: partition.  The Speccy data indicates (IMO) that this may be a wise step...in any case, it will do no harm to the system.

 

After that, I would download/run the SeaTools for Windows utility and let us know what the results (pass/fail) are.  You want to run the long generic test, do not attempt anything other than that.

- It could be a memory problem. Install Cleanmem. It reduces memory usage every 15 minutes (other nay other user defined interval) and let it collapse the filecache as well. It will increase overall system performance becuase it recudes the amount of data that needs to written to the pagefile.

http://www.pcwintech.com/cleanmem

- Run GSmartControl and tell us how many pink lines show up in the "Attributes" tab. I fear your HD is in the 1st stages of failing.

http://gsmartcontrol.sourceforge.net/home/

- The speed of the memory modules are not the same (2x 333 Mhz & 2x 266 Mhz). It means that your memory runs at a slower speed of 266 Mhz and not 333 Mhz).

If the Seatools for Windows has not completed after 9 hours...I'd say that's a definitive hard drive problem.

 

I would try running the SeaTools for DOS hard drive diagnostic for confirmation.
