System Operation Excruciatingly slow

Post by Helping Others on Fri 27 Nov 2009, 1:22 pm

If this is in the wrong forum please advise and move to the correct one.

My mother-in-law's system takes so long to perform any action. The system is a Compaq Presario SR2150NX using Vista w/SP2 on a Celeron D 3.33GHz, 2GB RAM. All critical updates have been installed, most unused programs deleted, Java up to date, JavaRA run, Adobe updated and the following output from Hijack This is below. Live Update.com always fails and cannot find the fix to that as well. She's using AdAware which comes up clean, and access her AOL through the internet. Option is not available to delete AOL nor use Mozilla.

  • Press "Fix Checked"
  • Close Hijack This.


I see that you have two antispyware protection running in real time, this is not necessary and may cause conflict. Disable either Ad-Watch or Spysweeper. You also do not have antivirus running. Choose one from below:

Avast: http://www.avast.com/

Avira: http://www.avira.com/en/pages/index.php

AVG: http://free.avg.com/ww-en/homepage
