Please open your command prompt and type "defrag c: -b"

Start > Run > Cmd > defrag c: -b

Also check the services running in background

Start > Run > services.msc

Set your web servers and other antivirus programs to manual.

You can also use some reliable tool such as reginout to fixup registry related issues.

Hope it would help you.

David_rplry8: i think the problem you face is due to less memory in ur pc or i could give u some more hints if u could b abit more detail in explaining ur problem.

Apart from that i can simply make out from the bits of explaination that u jst did, is that you r running low in memory and you definitely need to upgrade if u r interested in making ur PC work fast.

I had problems with an extremely slow pc. I replaced mcafee with Norton 360. Norton found a few trojans,etc. All removed and i undertook a disk defragment. Then Windows xp home edition did not start in...


Both Norton and Mcafee are known for slowing pc's down.

Boot your PC as normal, but as its starting keep pressing the F8 key until some options appear on your screen. On of which will be "boot windows in safe mode".

Select that option and a windows shell should open.

Once open got to Start - Control Panel - Add/remove programmes and uninstal both mcafee and norton.

Once complete, reboot and see how you PC runs.

Assuming its working ok now, go back to your control panel - security centre - enable windows firewall.

Go online to "Filehippo.com" and download and istall the free version of AVG (anti virus software) once installed let it scan your system.

Then go back to Filehippo.com, download and install Ccleaner. This has loads of tools, :-
1) Cleaner clears all the tempory internet files of your pc.

2) Startup - you can reduce the number of programes you want th start up when booting.

You don't need any here because you can access all programmes via start but I'd leave AVG and any securtiy related to start and delete the rest. But its probably better to just disable the rest until you're happy with which programmes auto start.

Good Luck

After using Darik's boot and nuke (DBAN) your hard drive will be wiped clean with little chance of recovery. This also depends on how many passes you used for the disk wipe. More passes = less chance of recovery.

Restore from backup
You can restore backups previously created (as stated in the Create backup
section) from hard disk, CD or DVD.
1 Boot to Windows XP.
2 Press <Alt> + <F10> to open the Acer eRecovery Management utility.
3 Enter the password to proceed. The default password is six zeros.
4 In the Acer eRecovery Management window, select Recovery actions and
click Next.
5 Select the desired restore action and follow the onscreen instructions to
complete the restore process.

Very very very slow performance


That is way off buddy should take no more than 1 hour to install and you should be able to boot up into windows in 30 seconds or less. I suggest you first run a virus checker. You probably have a virus that is why it is taking so long. If their are too many virus;s then wipe all the data off your hard drive and reinstall. That will get rid of the virus. Also run disk cleanup and disk defrag that are in the accessories/system tools. Good luck, let me know if you have any questions.

Hi there
Don't bother with service pack 3, it will only slow the pc down even more, what you need is a memory upgrade so the machine can perform well, also a better hard drive would be a good idea
