Hi, Using registry cleaners can corrupt other softwares of your computer. If your computer is working slow, There can be following reasons:
***RAM memory
Make sure you have enough RAM(512 MB for Xp and 1 GB for vista)

Scan for spywares. You can download Malwarebytes from or Superantispyware from

***Third party softwares like Norton, mcafee, & various other softwares also slows down the system by running in background all the time.
For checking this:
>>Click on start >run> type "msconfig" hit enter >
On system config. window

>>Goto STARTUP tab on TOP. This list contains all third party softwares which runs in the background. You can disable or uncheck them. Keep only those ones checked , which you use frequently.Uncheck rest of them. Unchecking them does not mean that you are deleting them from your computer. It just means that you are stopping them from running automatically. You can run these softwares anytime by clicking on their icon.

Restart the computer

Once your computer comes back. It will give you a message for using system configuration utility. CHECK on "don't show this message again" and click on OK.

Sounds like your computer is overheating. If you have used it for some time, the extractor fan can get sticky dust on, and slow it down so the computer overheats. Try using a vacuum cleaner nozzle on the air vent to shift it
If not, a 'funny' noise can more seriously be a hard drive about to fail. You need to run a diagnostic test to check that

I can't end wgatray.exe by task manager nor delete it by using shift+delete havig said I 've already opened C:windowssystem32wgatray.exe.

wgatray.exe runs in the background to validate your Genuine Windows XP software against a list of serial numbers that are blacklisted by Microsoft.

If your system is running pirated XP, the wgatray process will show a pop-up warning - "This copy of Windows XP is not genuine" - this is no error or virus, its a reminder from Microsoft to go original.

Though you can temporarily disable Windows Genuine Advantage notifications by removing wgatray.exe or wgalogon, this is never recommended since you will not be able to download important security updates and patches from Microsoft Updates website.

If you are running a counterfeit or illegal version of Windows XP, rather than hunting for a wga workaround, just get the authentic GGK kit from Microsoft to convert your pirated XP into Genuine software by changing the XP product key - completely legit way to make Windows genuine and you need not reinstall your Windows XP.

The WGA patch is installed if the user has opted to automatically update Windows via the Windows Update Website or if a XP users manually downloads the latest Windows updates.

Slow for open file at freehand mx 11

The most common reason for slow processing speed is insufficient RAM memory.

Increase the RAM, if RAM available is no more than 512MB, then it must be upgraded.

Check also your hard drive state. If you have less than 1GB free, that will slow down the system. Go to Start>>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defregmenter and do a Defrag of the hard disk.

If you have at least 1 GB RAM, and you took care of the hard drive, then you can check the process starting up on their own and remove the useless one, or spot mala-ware that can affect speed. You can use a software like Hijack This, and search on google te function of each process started on the list reported by the software.

You can download Hijack this here MajorGeeks | If download does not start, then click at the top of the page, where it says Click Here If It Does Not.
Be careful if you delete the wrong files using this software you can harm the system, and Windows may not work properly.

If you think you have malaware you can also install Spy Bot, and do a system scan. Download Spybot from The home of Spybot.

If all the above does not work, and there is no malaware, then you usually reinstall the system.

Check also the bios settings, BIOS can downgrade the CPU speed on default , even if this is uncommon on recent BIOS.

If a computer is still slow with a fresh system and enough resources then it is one of those rare occasions when you have an hardware fault.
Hardware that can cause slow down is: RAM CPU Motherboard HD Video card.

Some tips on procedure can damage your windows installation. Do not download Hijackthis software and do not change BIOS settings and do not touch hardware unless you are sure of what you are doing.

Is PC Tools a legitimate company?

Hello Typative,

I know for a fact PC Tools is a legit company. Whether or not they did find something Webroot didn't that is another question. I have used PC Tools before and had no issues with them. As a matter of fact, I liked them better than Webroot.

Good Luck!

P.S. If you find this information helpful, please rate this solution.

Computer running slow

Well...when using trend micro you shouldn't need windows defender. You should also try cleaning your registry. I own a new computer with vista as well. If your registry is just a little bugged up your whole computer could be dragging. Try the programs below and see which one you like best...
You should continue cleaning your registry about 3 times a week.
