Hello. I have a Win 7 Professional SP1 OS on a Dell AMD Athlon II X2 240 Processor 2.80 Ghz machine. I have 2.0 GBs Ram with 1.75 GB free. It's a 64 bit.
I have been having a lot of trouble with it running slowly and freezing. Especially if I have been to FB or Google Earth but this does not have to be a prerequisite. It just is not as fast or responsive on or off internet in many cases. I recently ran a defrag after deleting some unnecessary files and am about to go ahead and run a check disk and repair which I had been lax in doing.
I also ran some virus scanners but nothing major popped up. So I thought I would ask for some help and advice from you guys on what to do after the Check Disk to help make sure there is not some hidden virus. Or maybe some other clean up I can do. One other thing I did was I noticed that Firefox was running 5 - 7 instances of itself so I modified it to only run one of itself. I do not think it really helped if at all.
Thanks and I will check back later after the Check Disk is run.
