My feiends Dell Net book is very slow, I set the system back and Installed AVG removed Mal Wares it ran good, When i took it back it went to running very slow again~!! So do I have to wipe it and reinstall xp? Is there a registry cleaner that doesn't cost too much? Thanks bob


There are many free and effective registry cleaners. You can use Ccleaner (which I highly recommend). You can download Ccleaner from here (click here). It's bundled with System Cleaner, Registry Cleaner and other utilities. Run the System cleaner and the registry cleaner. Check the startups and also verify all the services from the Task Manager.

Sometimes some virus can't be removed if they really infected some files, in that case, you better reinstall the windows (full format), but remember, during the backup or file transfer, don't simply copy/paste, instead use the wizard like "backup" or "Files and Settings Transfer"..

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Perhaps there's something that is running in the background that is slowing your machine down?
Another thing that might help you is to empty your cache memory.
