First of all I am a complete dolt on all of this. Please explain like I am a 4th grader.
I have a Dell Dimension 4100 & running MS 2000 Professional. For a couple of weeks now it has been running incredibly slow. I have followed your tutorials and have installed and run: Spybot Search & Destroy; SpyWare Doctor, Spyware Blaster, and Panda ActiveScanPro. Still sluggish.
I have also sucessfully run the Disk De-fragmenter. The strange thing is I cannot run the Disk Clean-up tool. When I run it I get a screen that says:
Disk clean-up is calculating how much space you will be able to free up on (C:)
Then it just freezes with the box showing 4 bars
It also says..."Scanning: Compressing old files"
So it just freezes and nothing happens after that. Does this tell you anything? Is this a clue as to what is wrong?
Any help/advice will be greatly appreciated. TIA
